A Scottish Shipwreck makes a cameo appearance in The Ang Lee Blockbuster – Life of Pi.
Surprised locals recognised the wreck of the Scottish fishing boat called ‘The Sovereign’ on the film poster, it’s highly doctored but obviously the same wreck, which can still be seen stranded at Cairnbulg on the east coast of Scotland since it ran aground during a stormy night in 2005. All the fishermen were airlifted to safety.

Locals had thought of this wreck as an eyesore and a danger to swimmers, but  are  now hoping this new found fame will spark a much needed tourism boom to the area.
