Oliver Stone to develop Fox's "Travis McGee"

Director Oliver Stone is set to develop and possibly direct the detective feature "Travis McGee" for 20th Century Fox.

Leonardo DiCaprio will star as the title character, a Salvage Consultant who is also a self-described beach bum, living on a houseboat in Florida, taking on cases only when his money runs low.

"Travis McGee" is a fictional detective character created by American mystery writer John D. MacDonald, and has appeared in 21 books, starting from "The Deep Blue Good-by" in 1964.

The feature's plotline would be taken from "The Deep Blue Goodbye," in which the detective searches for a World War II treasure. It's adaptation script was written by Dana Stevens.

Fox-based Chernin Entertainment's Peter Chernin will co-produce alongside Amy Robinson, DiCaprio's Appian Way production and Jennifer Davisson Killoran.
