Ang Lee has revealed he'd love to work with Life Of Pi newcomer Suraj Sharma again.

The Indian student, who had no previous acting experience, landed the lead role in Lee's new fantasy movie by chance after attending an audition with his actor brother.

When asked if he would collaborate with Suraj again in the future, Lee said: "Of course. If there's a good part, any time. He's such an incredible talent."

Suraj plays a boy who is stranded at sea with a Bengal tiger for company in the film, an adaptation of the acclaimed Yann Martel novel.

"I hope eventually I get to make movies in any way possible, behind the camera or in front," the actor said.

"I just want to tell stories, that's what I want to do. So if I have to go to Hollywood, I don't know where I have to go or what I have to do, I just have to do it!"

:: Life Of Pi is in cinemas on December 20.
