Blackbird: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tobey Maguire is taking flight to produce with an eye to star in Blackbird, a thriller that David Auburn will write for Columbia Pictures.
Blackbird will be loosely based on a book proposal by Eric Olson titled "Through the Glass Darkly," which has been set up at Regan Books. Olson's father worked for the CIA when the agency performed LSD experiments in the 1960s and later died under mysterious circumstances.
For 20 years, Olson's family believed he committed suicide. When Olson found out that his father was given LSD by his employers a week before his death, he was compelled to investigate what happened.
