We had talked about the interest of Leonardo DiCaprio to take up this role. But now with the addition of Oliver Stone it might just kill what happens. Oliver Stone is at the cross roads of his career. He is getting ready for the release for the sequel of his film Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.
DiCaprio will be producing with the help of his shingle called Appian Way. He had brought the rights for the film last year and the interest in the book has grown in the last couple of months. But it is not your typical Hollywood detective story. There will be a lot of digressions that will be part of the bigger picture.
But Leonardo is getting ready for the biggest release in his career since Titanic called Inception. It is filled with an international cast and will be the highlight of this year. A convoluted plot that will make us think of our existence on this planet.
The Travis McGee novels were written by John D. MacDonald and it consists of a collection of 21 novels. It tells the story of an investigative character Travis McGee. The Deep Blue Good-by is a starting point for this massive collection of character description. Each of the novels adds more history and unlikely insight into the main character. The books begin to evolve as the character is taken by age and maturity. The revolution and all that is happening in the world is well documented in the series.
The plot introduces readers to Travisâ€™ place of residence the Busted Flush. In the beginning we are introduced to a fledgling bachelor McGee who has his way with women from all places. But later on we find out that he is not a detective but more of a salvage consultant. A job he takes up only when he gets bored of all the poker games he plays. He is also known to take up jobs only when his money runs out. But he wouldnâ€™t like to be calling a mercenary.
Each of the books also has an antagonist that villainous in all degrees. So the dealings with his client get a little twisted with the presence of these villains. But they seem to get worse with each passing of a novel.
