Tobey Maguire to make directorial debut with Jo Nesbo’s ‘Blood On Snow’

Tobey Maguire is set to make his directorial debut on Blood On Snow, the big screen adaptation of Jo Nesbo’s novel. Deadline reports the news of Maguire’s involvement, along the fact that Nesbo is all set to adapt from his own novella.

Here’s the synopsis from the source material.

From the internationally acclaimed author of the Harry Hole novels—a fast, tight, darkly lyrical stand-alone novel that has at its center the perfectly sympathetic antihero: an Oslo contract killer who draws us into an unexpected meditation on death and love.

This is the story of Olav: an extremely talented “fixer” for one of Oslo’s most powerful crime bosses. But Olav is also an unusually complicated fixer. He has a capacity for love that is as far-reaching as is his gift for murder. He is our straightforward, calm-in-the-face-of-crisis narrator with a storyteller’s hypnotic knack for fantasy. He has an “innate talent for subordination” but running through his veins is a “virus” born of the power over life and death. And while his latest job puts him at the pinnacle of his trade, it may be mutating into his greatest mistake. . . .

Maguire can currently be heard in Dreamworks Animation’s The Boss Baby. He was last seen on screen in 2014 in the film Pawn Sacrifice. No news on when Blood On Snow will roll into production, but we’ll keep you updated.
