“Good” centers on a young couple who are deeply in debt after a round of failed fertility treatments. All their problems seem to be solved when they find $400,000 in a deceased tenant’s apartment — but you know money like that just has to have suspicious origins. Their initial excitement is squashed when a drug dealer, a vengeful robber, and a suspicious cop all come looking for the money and the man who hid it.
The script is being written by Kelly Masterson, but the project does not yet have a director attached. If Maguire decides to star, the project could be delayed for quite awhile depending on his “Spider-Man” commitments — and the third installment wiped the guy out enough that he’s taken a pretty long break from acting. (“Brothers,” his first film since “Spider-Man 3” comes out sometime this year.)
Despite the recent report that “Spider-Man 4” will begin filming in 2010, it would be nice to see him onscreen again when he wasn’t web-slinging, so let’s hope he decides to take the “Good People” lead.
MTV readers, have you missed Tobey Maguire onscreen? Or are you just eager for him to get to filming “Spider-Man 4” already?
