A well connected tipster reports that Tobey Maguire is attached to the proposal for the Grant Achatz biopic, tentatively titled "Taste." The movie is an adaptation of the Alinea chef's book Life On The Line, with David Dobkin directing.
It's still premature for confirmations, since the film has yet to get a green light. And it should be noted that Maguire (aka SPIDERMAN) has, oh about 16 projects in development, so who knows. But perhaps all the kudos Meryl Streep received for her Julia role will push him into the chef role. Here's hoping it does (or that he turns it down and they give it to Ethan Hawk).
