The bestselling novel, about a young Indian boy who survives the sinking of a ship on a small boat with a menagerie of animals, has been passed among several directors over the years, from M. Night Shyamalan, to Alfonso Cuaron, to Jean-Pierre Jeunet. Ultimately, Oscar winner Ang Lee tackled the movie (in 3-D no less!). And as has been proved by Lee's track record, he's a master of (nearly) every genre he tackles. Back in line, superhero movies!
