Actor Tobey Maguire is flexing his child-like imagination with Cardboard, an adaptation of Doug TenNapel’s graphic novel that sees cardboard creations come to life. Maguire is set to executive produce the project through his banner, Material Pictures, alongside TenNapel and the Gotham Group. The Fox Animation acquisition would be animated by WedgeWorks, with Chris Wedge (Ice Age) eyeing the director’s chair. Cardboard follows a down-on-his-luck father who gives his young son a crappy birthday present (a cardboard box), which comes to life once they shape it into a man. Hit the jump for more.
