The Deep Blue Good-by

After spending years in development, it seems the adaptation of The Deep Blue Good-By, featuring John D. MacDonald's recurring character Travis McGee, is finally making progress. The Wolverine director James Mangold boarded the film this past spring, after directors like Paul Greengrass and Oliver Stone flirted with the project and Leonardo DiCaprio wanted to star. But now a new name might end up with the lead role as Variety reports Out of the Furnace and American Hustle star Christian Bale is in early talks to play the self-described beach bum who won his houseboat in a card game who appears in 21 books. Read on!

Bale doesn't have an official offer, but apparently the actor has agreed to star and is currently working out a deal as we speak. Mangold is officially signed to direct for Chernin Entertainment and Leonardo DiCaprio will still produce through his Appian Way banner along with Jennifer Davison-Killoran. This particular McGee story is actually the first tale to introduce us to the man who's a knight errant and 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. Could this be Bale's very own Jack Reacher? We'll see.
