All this time we'd assumed The Man in the Iron Mask would be the first lousy Leonardo Di Caprio movie to make the leap to television, but no. Fox is developing a TV series based on The Beach, both the 1996 book and the relatively forgettable 2000 movie about a group of people who leave conventional society behind and set up their own community on a remote beach in Thailand. The setting's idyllic, but their lives become anything but!
