‘Everything Changes’ For Tobey Maguire

Tobey MaguireIs everything about to change for Tobey Maguire? That seems to be the case, as director Peter Hedges revealed to MTV News that he’s lassoed the “Spider-Man” star for his next project, the appropriately titled “Everything Changes.”

While the film was first announced in 2004, it’s only now revving up thanks to a clear schedule for its director and star, Hedges said.

Based on a book by Jonathan Tropper, “Everything Changes” centers around “guy who had to take care of his family at a young age because his dad left,” Hedges explained. “His dad comes back and for one week he has the father of his dreams – he helps him figure out that he’s trying so hard not to be his father that he’s not being himself.”

While technically true, fans of the novel will tell you that it all comes out slightly off center – somewhat tweaked and comic. Which makes it the perfect fit for Hedges, the very funny guy who wrote “About a Boy,” “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape,” and the upcoming “Dan in Real Life.”

“It’ll be in the ‘Dan In Real Life’/’Gilbert’ vein,” he said of the film’s tone. “I’m very excited to work with Tobey. You’re going to see a great performance [from him]. I find him really smart and talented.” Source: MoviesBlog.mtv.com
