Tobey Maguire to Produce Good People


The Film Department has acquired screen rights to Marcus Sakey crime novel “Good People,” with Tobey Maguire’s Maguire Entertainment and Film 360, the production division of Management 360, to produce the feature adaptation.

Variety says that with all his producing projects, Maguire has first crack at the male lead role.

The script will be written by Kelly Masterson, who most recently wrote Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead.

Good People concerns a couple in debt from several rounds of futile fertility treatments who think their problems are solved when they stumble upon money found in their deceased tenant’s apartment.
