Ang Lee Goes Gay Again!

Academy Award Winning director of Brokeback Mountain Ang Lee is once again directing a small gay love story set against a rather epic backdrop. This time it will be based on Elliot Tiber’s 2007 book set in the Summer of 1969 about an in-the-closet artist helping his aging Old World Jewish parents run their ramshackle resort motel in the Catskill Mountains. He’s also the head of the Chamber of Commerce in his small town, and possessed of the yearly permit to hold summer music concerts, which he grants to promoter Michael Lang’s then low-key Woodstock festival to hold on his neighbour Max Yasgur’s farm.

Woodstock will most likely head into production by November 2008, whilst Lee will still be in the editing room on his next movie A Little Game, an English-language remake of the 2004 French movie of the same name.
