Oliver Stone may be moving from day traders to detectives.

The 'Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps' helmer is in talks to direct a big screen adaptation of John D. MacDonald's 1964 detective novel 'The Deep Blue Good-by.'

Leonardo DiCaprio is attached to star as Travis McGee, the shaggy hero who went on to appear in 21 more books.

The novel features McGee as a "salvage consultant" who reluctantly leaves his Florida houseboat to go in search of a treasure hidden by a soldier after World War II. The studio, Fox, is hoping that 'The Deep Blue Good-by' could be the first in a franchise.
