Author Dennis Lehane ("Shutter Island") has been hired to pen the script for the sleuth drama "Travis McGee" at 20th Century Fox.

The film will be based on John D. McDonald's "Deep Blue Good-by," one of nearly two dozen mystery books featuring the character of Travis Magee and set around Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

Leonardo DiCaprio was once attached and things are being worked out to get him back. Peter Chernin and Amy Robinson will produce.
