The Beach is a 2000 British adventure drama film directed by Danny Boyle and based on the 1996 novel of the same name by Alex Garland, which was adapted for the film by John Hodge.  The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio and features Tilda Swinton, Robert Carlyle, Virginie Ledoyen and Guillaume Canet.  It was filmed on the Thai island Phuket

Ewan McGregor was cast as the main character before leaving due to disputes with the director.  It was speculated that Boyle was offered additional funding under the condition that DiCaprio be cast and his character made American.

Real-life drama unfurled on set one day when the cast and crew were involved in a boating accident during production.  It was reported that the incident involved both Boyle and DiCaprio.  No one was injured.

The beach seen in the film is not the same as in real life.  There is a gap between mountains on the actual beach in Thailand.  The special effects crew digitally added some of the surrounding mountains during the post-production phase.  The actual beach was also transformed from its natural look.  It is reported that crew members flattened the beach with a tractor, much to the locals' dismay.  The Tsunami of 2004, however, has reshaped the beach to its natural look.

Boyle has been cited saying that the look of the jungle scenes in the film were inspired by the Rare/Nintendo Game Banjo-Kazooie.

The map in the film was illustrated by the author of the book version of The Beach, Alex Garland.
