Leonardo DiCaprio's 'The Beach' to Be Turned Into TV Series


FOX has tapped Andrew Miller to write the script for the TV project based on the 2000 movie directed by Danny Boyle.

FOX is developing a new TV series based on 2000's movie "The Beach" starring Leonardo DiCaprio. Deadline reports that the network has scored the drama project which has "The Secret Circle" writer Andrew Miller penning the script.

"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," Canadian actor/scribe/director Miller says of the plotline.

The original movie itself is directed by Danny Boyle and based on Alex Garland's 1996 novel of the same title. It follows DiCaprio's Richard, an American student who leads a group of travelers to find a beach paradise on a secret island but once they find it, they learn that things are not as idyllic as they seem.
