Tobey Maguire to star in Good People
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
After SPIDER-MAN 4 fell through for Tobey Maguire and Sam Raimi, we haven’t heard much from Tobey as far as what he’s going to do next. Aside from Spidey, Maguire tended to gravitate more towards the artsy, dramatic roles and he seems to be keeping with that trend with GOOD PEOPLE, which he recently acquired and will both produce and star in. The film is based off the book of the same name by Marcus Sakey and is about a Chicago couple that has been struggling to have a child for years and their efforts have left them in financial danger and put a huge strain on their marriage. But things change when they come across $400,000 and although they think their fortunes have changed for the better, things get dangerous when the men who lost the money come looking for it.
Niels Arden Opley will be directing the film. It sounds like a serious version of DATE NIGHT, but if done well and had a strong leading lady, this could be a good film for Tobey Maguire.
