James Mangold (The Wolverine) is set to direct a new mystery adaptation for 20th Century Fox. Deadline reports that Mangold is in talks to helm The Deep Blue Good-Bye based on the first book in John D. MacDonald's Travis McGee novels.
The book was published in 1964 and focuses on McGee, a "beach bum" layabout who helps people recover things that were taken from them on the condition that he gets half of whatever is recovered. Dennis Lehane (Mystic River, Gone Baby Gone, Shutter Island) wrote the script.
