Tobey Maguire - Maguire's Film A Hit At Sundance

TOBEY MAGUIRE's new movie THE DETAILS has become the latest Sundance Film Festival hit - the indie drama has been snapped up by The Weinstein Company for $8 million (£5.3 million).
The film, in which Maguire plays an unfaithful doctor, also stars Elizabeth Banks, Ray Liotta and Laura Linney.
It's one of a slew of films that have been picked up by big-deal film companies in the first week of Sundance.
Moguls Bob and Harvey Weinstein have also picked My Idiot Brother, while distribution rights for gritty drama Martha Marcy May Marlene - starring Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's little sister Elizabeth - have gone to Fox Searchlight executives.
Meanwhile, Paramount Pictures chiefs have bought romance Like Crazy and bosses at Sony Pictures Worldwide acquired U.S. and Canadian rights to Morgan Spurlock's The Greatest Movie Ever Sold documentary hours before the festival officially began last Thursday (20Jan11).
