DiCaprio and Oliver Stone in talks to team up

How fitting, I ended the day with Leonardo DiCaprio news and I wake up to Leonardo DiCaprio news. This time he’s being linked to another award-winning director, Oliver Stone, who’s currently in talks to direct “Travis McGee”.

DiCaprio and his production company Appian Way have been attached to the project for some time now, and hope to make a franchise out of it.  “Travis McGee” is adapted from The Deep Blue Good-By and is apart of a series  by John McDonald. Here’s the synopsis, straight from Collider:

“Cathy Kerr is innocence turned helpless desperation-all because of the smiling freckle-faced stranger named Junior Allen. Cathy has nowhere to turn-except to another stranger, that man named Travis McGee-who is a walking pillar of cold rage as he follows the depraved wreckage of Junior Allen’s trail.

Travis McGee is a self-described beach bum who won his houseboat in a card game. He’s also a knight errant who’s wary of credit cards, retirement benefits, political parties, mortgages and television. He only works when his cash runs out and his rule is simple–he’ll help you find whatever was taken from you, as long as he can keep half. Original.”

It’s clear that Leo is on a mission to claim that long overdue Oscar or maybe he just enjoy doing great work. Or both. Either way anything with Leo involved is always a good thing.

As for Stone, his film “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps” has been pushed to a September release; a move that screams ‘awards season campaign.’
