Sony picks up female-led 'The Eden Project', Tobey Maguire to produce
The Eden Project, a secretive sci-fi action film centered on two female characters, has found a home at Sony.
The studio closed a deal for Christina Hodson’s spec script after Material principals Tobey Maguire and Matthew Plouffe brought it to their attention, Sony announced Friday. Columbia Pictures’ Hannah Minghella will oversee the project, which Maguire and Plouffe will produce.
Hodson might not have much to her IMDB page at the moment, but she’s already had two scripts land on the Black List, including Seed, which will be produced by Marty Bowen and Peter Safran. She also penned Unforgettable, a thriller about a woman who sets out to “make hell” for the new wife of her ex-husband that Belle helmer Amma Asante is set to direct for Warner Bros.
According to the release, The Eden Project is the first story in a conceived trilogy.
