WIP, Maguire eye ‘Mr. Good Enough’

Duo acquire rights to Lori Gottlieb article

Warner Independent and Tobey Maguire’s Maguire Entertainment have acquired book and pic rights to the Atlantic Monthly article “Marry Him! The Case for Settling for Mr. Good Enough” by NPR commentator Lori Gottlieb.

Gottlieb will turn her article, which appeared in the March edition of the magazine, into a book for Dutton, “Marry Him! Finding Mr. Real.”

Maguire will produce the pic, and Mark Ross will oversee the project for his shingle.

Gottlieb is a 40-year-old single mother who conceived her baby through donor sperm. Hardened by the responsibilities of raising a child alone, she posits that there is no such thing as a dream guy.

“Don’t worry about passion or intense connection. Don’t nix a guy based on his annoying habit of yelling ‘Bravo!’ in movie theaters. Overlook his halitosis or abysmal sense of aesthetics. Because if you want to have the infrastructure in place to have a family, settling is the way to go,” Gottlieb wrote.

Maguire Entertainment recently signed on to produce “Hungry Rabbit Jumps,” a Robert Tannen spec script acquired by Endgame Entertainment as a potential star vehicle for Maguire.

Maguire next stars in the Jim Sheridan-directed “Brothers.”
