Tobey Maguire to Produce Comedy ‘I Take You’

Tobey Maguire and Matthew Plouffe have acquired feature film rights to Eliza Kennedy’s debut novel “I Take You” and will produce the project with “Whiplash” producer Helen Estabrook.

Maguire and Plouffe will produce through their Material Pictures banner. Estabrook brought the project to Material and she and Plouffe will spearhead development.

Kennedy will write the script for “I Take You,” published by Crown on May 5. The story follows a 20-something New York lawyer as her wedding to the seemingly perfect fiancé approaches in Key West. However, she starts to ask questions about whether the happiest day of her life might turn out to be her worst mistake.

Kennedy attended the University of Iowa and Harvard Law School, where she was editor-in-chief of the Harvard Law Review.

Kennedy is repped by WME and Management 360.

Material is repped by WME and Huy Nguyen of Hansen, Jacobson, Teller, Hoberman, Newman, Warren, Richman, Rush & Kaller, who did the deal.
