“Spider-Man” franchise star Tobey Maguire will topline a Sony adaptation of the Isaac Adamson novel Tokyo Suckerpunch. The studio has hired Ed Solomon to write the film.

In the novel, Billy Chaka writes a column that casts him as macho hero living in a surreal, amped-up Tokyo. When his book gets turned into a movie, Chaka flies to the city for the premiere and hates it enough to clash loudly with the director, who ends up murdered.

Solomon just adapted Roald Dahl novel The BFG for Paramount. He’s previously written such films as Men in Black, Charlie’s Angels, Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure and did extensive uncredited script work for X-Men.
