Tobey Maguire will produce and star in the film ‘Good People’ to be directed by Niels Arden Opley which will be adapted from a book by Marcus Sakey. Opley is the director of last year’s Swedish film adaptation of “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”.
Sakey is a native Chicagoan and is known for twist endings in his crime novels. Here is a brief synopsis of the book from :
In increasing debt from failed attempts to produce a child, Tom and Anna can’t resist taking the money they discover hidden in their deceased tenant’s apartment. After the initial euphoria, the Reeds find themselves dealing with a deadly drug dealer who wants something they don’t have, a vengeful robber looking for the money they do have and a suspicious cop who knows they’re holding out on him.
This sounds like an interesting premise and a role that would be a good fit for Maquire in my opinion. What are your thoughts on this bit of news? Does this sound like a film you are interested in seeing?
