‘The Beach‘ to be adapted for TV
US network Fox is developing a TV version of the 2000 movie ‘The Beach’, which was based on the 1996 Alex Garland novel.
The novel which went on to be made into the Danny Boyle directed big screen hit in 2000, starred Leonardo Di Caprio in the lead role as a western backpacker who goes in search of a idyllic mysterious island.
According to Deadline the project is being written by Andrew Miller, who penned the original script for the CW’s The Secret Circle and is said to have jumped on board the project after being a fan of both the book and movie: “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”, Miller said.
Fox’s sister studio 20th Century Fox TV is producing the series.
