Tobey Maguire, most ultimately known from the Spider-Man movies, has landed a huge check heading toward his way. The actor who played Peter Parker, has a signed a deal for his role in Spider-Man 4 & 5 for a large amount of $50 Million (plus profit shares). I guess he’s realizing how much he’s in demand and he’s willing to taking advantage of that. In his contract he’s demanded that he get early mornings and evenings off to play with his daughter, Ruby, who is 22 months old.
Tobey will be filming both of the movies back-to-back over the course of six months. Maguire will earn $50M in salary and profit shares from the two movies.
Sony is expected to reveal in the next few days whether or not Kirsten Dunst will be returning as Mary-Jane Watson.
Spider-Man 4 is scheduled to release on April 30, 2011.
