Spotted today (September 8, 2009) at the Green Lake Community Center: Tobey Maguire!

Spidey is in town filming The Details, an indie black comedy with a 2010 projected release.

Film extra “bugzrrad” posted the following to the IMDb Boards at 3:06 p.m.:

just got back from filming a few scenes during a basketball game at the greenlake rec center (i’m a benchwarmer extra). dennis haysbert and tobey maguire were there. dennis is pretty much a pimp, but tobey seems like kind of a doober; he doesn’t really talk to anyone all that much. he’s pretty damn good at basketball though!

The details on The Details, via Variety Magazine:

Maguire joins Elizabeth Banks in the pic about a struggling married couple who, already struggling with issues like infidelity and whether they should stay married, see their lives further complicated by ravenous raccoons burrowing under the sod in their back yard. A disagreement over how to dispatch the pests creates a chain reaction of mishaps that include a murder by bow and arrow.

Ray Liotta, Dennis Haysbert and Anna Friel round out the cast and Laura Linney is attached to play an eccentric neighbor.


Director Jacob Estes told Monica Guzman:

“We were looking for the kind of city all our characters would live in. The main couple is sort of progressive, cultured. Then on top of that there’s a very eccentric character played by Laura Linney who would have also been attracted to Seattle,” he said.

“On top of that, the film commission was very generous with us, very helpful. And on top of that, when we walked around the streets looking at locations, everyone was very friendly, there was a great film community we could work with and a very experienced local crew.”

Dennis Haysbert, who played President David Palmer on 24, has this to say about the film:

“Just say I meet Tobey Maguire at a pickup game on a basketball court and we became friends,” he said. “If you ask 30 different people what this movie is about you’ll get 30 different answers, depending on where they’re at in their lives.”

Filming has previously taken place in Montlake, Queen Anne, Belltown, and the Skagit Valley.
