Maguire joins Carrey/Kidman
Tobey Maguire has signed on to reteam with director Gary Ross, for
whom he worked previously with on PLEASANTVILLE, for an untitled romantic comedy that will
star Jim Carrey and Nicole Kidman. Maguire will play Carrey's doctor in the film,
which finds the ghost of Kidman coming back to haunt her widower (Carrey). The actor
would segue into filming after the release and promotion of SPIDER-MAN on May 3rd.
He has a short break after filming ends on this project before January 2003, when
production is scheduled to kick-off on SPIDER-MAN 2.
