Ang Lee on 'Hulk' failure: "I took the whole thing too seriously"

By
Ang Lee has discussed his 2003 comic book adaptation Hulk.

The Life of Pi helmer admitted that he made mistakes in his approach to the story of Bruce Banner/The Incredible Hulk, which contributed to the mixed reception the film received.

"My problem is that I took the whole thing too seriously," Lee told Vulture. "I should have had more fun with it, instead of all the psychodrama!"

Lee went on to explain that he had learned a lot about CGI from Hulk, which had informed his work on the upcoming adaptation of Yann Martel's Life of Pi.

"I wouldn't have been able to do Life of Pi without [that experience]. But it's easier to create an animal, because there exists a good reference - so a tiger or a hyena is easier than a 2,000-pound rage monster.

"The hardest thing to do is the weight, not the skin, because there's no reference for something that size that is agile."

Life of Pi will be released on November 21 in the US, and December 20 in the UK. Watch a trailer for the film below:
