MacDonald’s DEEP BLUE GOOD-BY Gets Director

Gary Fleder, who has directed the crime thrillers Runaway Jury and Kiss The Girls, is in talks to direct an adaptation of John MacDonald’s mystery novel The Deep Blue Good-By, the first in his long running series featuring the womanizing detective Travis McGee.

As we reported earlier this week, a Travis McGee franchise opportunity is one of a number of projects that Robert Downey Jr. is considering in the wake of his success with Iron Man. MacDonald wrote 21 Travis McGee novels, each with a color in the title.
