Although he’s been sliced from Life of Pi and The Great Gatsby has been pushed to next summer, a Tobey Maguire film will still find its way to some select theaters this fall. Premiering at Sundance back in 2011, The Weinstein Company picked up Jacob Aaron Estes‘ dark comedy The Details for a wild $7.5 million, and now with almost two years gone by, are finally getting ready to release it.

Genre film fans are likely familiar with writer Alex Garland‘s output over the last decade and a half. He made his name with a splash when his novel was adapted into the backpacking adventure thriller The Beach in 2000 and struck again with screenplay for 28 Days Later which some credit as the fire that helped reignite […]
