Ang Lee and James Schamus have a long and diverse career making films together (everything from Eat Drink Man Woman and The Ice Storm to Hulk and Brokeback Mountain). Their upcoming production, Taking Woodstock, isn’t that unusual (the story of a man in the Catskills who inadvertently sets in motion the Woodstock music festival). Who they’ve announced as the likely lead actor, though, is kinda odd but also very cool: hipster comedian Demetri Martin.
P.S. – If you haven’t ever seen Ang Lee and James Schamus’ 1993 breakthrough, The Wedding Banquet, try to catch it ASAP. Fifteen years later, it’s a fairly underrated gem.
