Leonardo DiCaprio Attached to Deep Blue Goodbye

20th Century Fox is developing The Deep Blue Goodbye, an adaptation of the John D. MacDonald mystery novel series that has Leonardo DiCaprio attached to star.

Peter Chernin joins Appian Way’s DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson Killoran as producers on the project written by Dana Stevens (For Love of the Game). Amy Robinson also is involved in a producing capacity.

DiCaprio is in line to play Travis McGee, a self-described beach bum who lives aboard 52-foot houseboat the Busted Flush and alleviates his cash-flow problems by hiring on as a “salvage consultant.” He recovers property for clients, taking a hefty percentage and getting into a lot of danger and romance in sun-drenched Florida.
