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.
