Ang Lee is nothing if not a varied and highly original filmmaker. He's tackled everything from martial arts to green monsters to gay cowboys.
Lee's latest venture is a comedy based around the infamous 1969 Woodstock Festival entitled Taking Woodstock. The true story is based on the memoirs of Elliot Tiber entitled Taking Woodstock: The True Story of a Riot, a Concert and a Life.
Regular Lee collaborator James Schamus (Brokeback Mountain, The Ice Storm) will adapt the screenplay. Focus Features will produce the project. Posted 04.23.08 by reelz
