Maguire moves into Miramax’s ‘House’ pic

Hallstrom at helm; Gladstein producing

NEW YORK — Tobey Maguire, who recently wrapped production on Ang Lee’s Civil War drama “Ride With the Devil” for Universal, has signed to star in the screen adaptation of John Irving’s “The Cider House Rules” for Miramax Films.

Lasse Hallstrom (“My Life as a Dog”) is helming “Rules” from Irving’s screenplay about a young man who leaves the orphanage where he was raised only to discover that his future is connected to his past.

Richard Gladstein, whose production company FilmColony Ltd. has a deal with Miramax, is producing “Rules,” which begins lensing Sept. 8 in western Massachusetts. Bobby Cohen will serve as the executive in charge of production for Miramax.

“Devil,” which also stars Jewel, Skeet Ulrich and Jeffrey Wright, was Maguire’s second collaboration with Lee. He previously worked under the director in Fox Searchlight’s “The Ice Storm.” Both “Devil” and “Ice Storm” were produced by Gotham-based Good Machine.

‘Pleasantville’ coming

This fall, Maguire will be on screens in New Line Cinema’s “Pleasantville,” which was directed by Gary Ross and also stars William H. Macy and Joan Allen, another “Ice Storm” cast member.

Maguire’s other film credits include Woody Allen’s “Deconstructing Harry,” a Fine Line Features release.

Maguire is represented by Leslie Siebert of the Gersh Agency, Eric Kranzler of Industry Entertainment and Steve Warren of Hansen, Jacobson, Teller & Hoberman.

The deal was negotiated on behalf of Miramax by Cary Meadow, vice president of business and legal affairs.
