Oliver Stone To Direct “Travis McGee”

Oliver Stone is set to develop and possibly direct the detective thriller “Travis McGee” for 20th Century Fox says Variety.

John D. MacDonald’s character creation is a beach bum and scrappy private dick who lives on a houseboat in Florida and takes random cases.

The McGee film, penned by Dana Stevens, is based on the first book in the series “The Deep Blue Goodbye” in which he searches for missing World War II treasure.

Leonardo Di Caprio, Peter Chernin, Amy Robinson and Jennifer Davisson Killoran are set to produce. Di Caprio was previously set to star, no word if that’s still the case.
