Maguire To Helm Nesbo Adaptation “Blood”

Tobey Maguire is set to make his directorial debut on a film adaptation of Jo Nesbo’s best-selling 2015 thriller “Blood on Snow” for Material and Grey Matter Productions.

The story centers on Olav, contract killer in Oslo who, when instructed to murder his adulterous wife, falls into a meditation on death and love, and opts to pursue his boss’ rival.

Nesbo will pen the script while Maguire, Matthew Plouffe and Lawrence Grey are producing. Nesbo’s “Headhunters” was previously adapted for the screen, while Tomas Alfredson’s new film “The Snowman” starring Michael Fassbender and Rebecca Ferguson is based on Nesbo’s novel of the same name.
