'The Secret Circle' scribe Andrew Miller to develop Leonardo DiCaprio film 'The Beach' for TV
As reported by Deadline, Miller is set to adapt Danny Boyle's 2000 movie "The Beach," based on the 1996 novel by Alex Garland, for television. Fans will remember Leonardo DiCaprio as Richard, a college student who leads a ragtag band of travelers on an expedition to find a secret beach paradise. Of course, once they arrive, things aren't quite as idyllic as they seem.
"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 says in a statement to Deadline.
