Tobey Maguire to star in ‘Details’

Indie begins shooting in Seattle this August

Tobey Maguire is set to star in “The Details,” an indie black comedy written and directed by Jacob Estes. Shooting begins August in Seattle.

Maguire joins Elizabeth Banks in the pic about a struggling married couple who, already struggling with issues like infidelity and whether they should stay married, see their lives further complicated by ravenous raccoons burrowing under the sod in their back yard. A disagreement over how to dispatch the pests creates a chain reaction of mishaps that include a murder by bow and arrow.

Ray Liotta, Dennis Haysbert and Anna Friel round out the cast and Laura Linney is attached to play an eccentric neighbor.

Mark Gordon is producing with Bryan Zuriff and Hagai Shaham. Mickey Liddell is exec producer. Liddell Ent. finances.

Maguire steps into a role that James McAvoy held (Daily Variety, May 7), until a scheduling conflict knocked him out of the picture. Maguire, who had flirted with the role very early on, decided to do the film before making “Spider-Man 4” with director Sam Raimi in early 2010. He’ll next be seen starring in the Jim Sheridan-directed “Brothers.”

“Maguire’s character is an everyman in the sense that he is composed of a morally ambiguous core,” Estes said. “He has good intentions, but he makes a lot of self-destructive mistakes.”

“The Details” marks the first pic for Estes since 2004’s “Mean Creek.”

Maguire is repped by Management 360 and CAA.
