According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tobey Maguire is in negotiations to star in and join Michael London as a producer on the romantic comedy Quiet Type for New Line Cinema.
The story centers on an unassuming mute from a small town who moves to New York to pursue his dreams of conducting an orchestra. Toby Emmerich, Kent Alterman and Michele Weiss will oversee for New Line. Richard LaGravanese has just completed a short rewrite of Quiet Type, which New Line acquired in 2002 as a spec script from writer Rob Perez for London to produce. Martin Hynes followed on from Perez to write the draft, which got Maguire on board.
