Arquette tops MGM’s ‘Toby’

Wainwright to helm supernatural thriller

Patricia Arquette, seen in “Beyond Rangoon” and “Lost Highway,” will play the lead role in MGM’s “Toby’s Story,” set to start shooting April 27.

Frank Mancuso Jr. will produce, with Rupert Wainwright (“Blank Check,” “Dillinger”) directing from a script by Tom Lazarus and Rick Ramage. “Toby,” described as a supernatural thriller, centers on an unreligious Boston woman who receives strange visitations that get increasingly out of control. The Vatican sends a priest to investigate the phenomenon.

MGM’s Michael Nathanson and Yalda Tehranian are the project execs. Deal was negotiated by 3 Arts Entertainment’s Molly Madden and UTA’s David DeCamillo.

Arquette, who appeared in “Flirting With Disaster” and “True Romance,” will be in Roland Joffe’s upcoming “Goodbye Lover” and in Stephen Frears’ “Hi-Lo Country,” with Woody Harrelson and Billy Crudup.
