The story centers on Pi (Suraj Sharma), a teenager who gets set adrift with a Bengal tiger after it killed three other animals. Tobey Maguire will play a writer who interviews the adult Pi (Irrfan Khan) about the experience. Gérard Depardieu, Adil Hussain, and Tabu also star in Life of Pi.
"I am delighted that Tobey has joined the film. He is one of my favorite actors that I have ever had the pleasure of working with and I am so excited that we get to work together for a third time."
