SPIDERMAN 3

TOBEY MAGUIRE (Peter Parker/Spider-Man) reunites with Kirsten Dunst, James Franco, and director Sam Raimi for Spider-Man™ 3, the third installment of a franchise that to date has grossed over $1.6 billion worldwide.

Achieving both critical and commercial success in his career, Maguire recently starred opposite George Clooney and Cate Blanchett in Steven Soderbergh's The Good German. Maguire's credits include an acclaimed performance as horse jockey Red Pollard in Gary Ross's Seabiscuit. The race horse epic received seven Academy Award® nominations including Best Picture.

An actor since his childhood, Maguire has appeared in numerous film and television projects, including This Boy's Life, in which he starred opposite Robert DeNiro and Leonardo DiCaprio; and Griffin Dunne's 1996 Academy Award®-nominated short Duke of Groove, featuring Kate Capshaw, Uma Thurman and Kiefer Sutherland. In 1997, Maguire followed that up with the Fox Searchlight release The Ice Storm, directed by Ang Lee. The film put Maguire on the map with critics and audiences alike for his portrayal of misunderstood youth.

Maguire's other credits include Woody Allen's literary satire Deconstructing Harry; Terry Gilliam's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, based on the novel by Hunter S. Thompson; and New Line's 1998 fantasy Pleasantville, directed by Gary Ross and co-starring Reese Witherspoon. Maguire cemented his career as a compelling actor with turns as Homer Wells in Lasse Hallstrom's poignant coming-of-age drama The Cider House Rules (a film nominated for seven Academy Awards®); Jake Roedel in Ang Lee's Ride with the Devil, the story of a young American bushwhacker striving to define himself in a country redefining its image amidst social turmoil; and James Leer in Curtis Hanson's Wonder Boys, in which Maguire starred opposite Michael Douglas as a student with a tendency to fictionalize his own family history.

Maguire's first outing as a producer was the big-screen adaptation of David Benioff's novel "The 25th Hour” for the Walt Disney Company. The critically acclaimed film was directed by Spike Lee and stars Ed Norton.

Maguire is developing several projects through Maguire Entertainment, among them Tokyo Suckerpunch, an adaptation by writer Ed Solomon of Isaac Adamson's novel, which tells the story of a young columnist who portrays himself as a hero living in a fictionalized version of modern-day Tokyo. Maguire is producing with Red Wagon Entertainment's Douglas Wick and Lucy Fisher. Also in development is the big-screen adaptation of Jonathan Tropper's bestselling novel, Everything Changes, which Dan Futterman (Capote) is currently writing. Maguire will produce with Wendy Finerman for Columbia Pictures. Maguire will also produce Hot Plastic with Radar Pictures and Ted Tally for Focus Features. Based upon the celebrated novel by Peter Craig (who is adapting the screenplay), Hot Plastic centers on a father and son con team who both fall for the same woman.
