Tobey Maguire Fills Out The Details
Drama alongside Elizabeth Banks

Tobey Maguire has replaced James McAvoy in the lead role of Jacob Estes’ black comedy, The Details.

McAvoy pulled out of the movie owing to a scheduling conflict, but with filming set to start next month in Seattle, Estes moved quickly to ensure that Maguire filled the gap. He’ll now star alongside his Spider-Man co-star Elizabeth Banks as a couple whose rocky marriage disintegrates further when raccoons start burrowing into their yard, setting off a darkly comic and murderous chain of events.

"Maguire's character is an everyman in the sense that he is composed of a morally ambiguous core," Estes told Variety. "He has good intentions, but he makes a lot of self-destructive mistakes."

It’s all worked out rather nicely for Maguire, in fact. He had circled the project back in the day, but nothing came of it. Now he’s found time to squeeze it in before starting work next year on Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 4.

The indie comedy also stars Ray Liotta, Dennis Haysbert, Laura Linney and Anna Friel, and sounds like an even darker version of The ‘burbs. Which, in case you weren’t sure, is a Good Thing.
