Tobey Maguire Producing Cardboard

Even as he reignites his acting career (albeit with mixed results), Tobey Maguire is still committed to his work as a producer. He’s dipping his toe into the world of 'toons by developing Cardboard with Fox Animation and Ice Age creator Chris Wedge’s WedgeWorks company.

The project will be adapted from Doug TenNapel’s graphic novel, which sees a down-on-his luck widower forced to give his son a disappointing birthday present – a cardboard box. When he tries to make things better by crafting the box into a boxer named Bill, he magically comes to life, and causes trouble with a neighbourhood bully who has evil plans.

Though it’s early days for the film’s development, Wedge is considering directing the film and there’s a chance that Maguire might end up lending his tonsil talents to the voice cast.

But all that’s in the future for now, as Maguire’s gearing up to star in Z For Zachariah and Wedge is busy finishing his latest ‘toon, Epic, adapted from a William Joyce tale. That one will arrive on May 24 next year.
