Leonardo DiCaprio Movie to Become Fox TV Show

Fox will adapt a Leonardo DiCaprio film into a television series, Deadline.com reports. The movie is the 2000 release “The Beach,” directed by Danny Boyle and adapted from a novel by Alex Garland.

The TV project is being penned by Andrew Miller, who wrote the CW’s "The Secret Circle" and ran the show with Kevin Williamson.

Miller said of "The Beach": “It’s about a group of young people feeling disconnected and disenchanted from society who try to start over in paradise but discover that while creating the perfect world is hard, protecting it is even harder.”

Fox’s sister studio 20th Century Fox TV will produce the TV series project.


  1. Liked the movie, it raised several fascinating issues in an intellectual manner… and didn’t do well at the box office, go figure. Done well, it could be a compelling tv production. If you haven’t seen the movie, I recommend it as it will make you think and even reflect on your place in this world.

  2. The book was far better than the movie, which compromised some key plot points. If it stays more true to the original novel, they might just have something here.

  3. It has potential to be really good. I’m just a little nervous it might turn into a combination of Survivor and Gilligan’s Island.
