Seems Tobey Maguire may not be able to return for the impending Spider-Man sequel. Apparently the rough stunt work required by the first movie and Seabiscuit have left him with an aching back, and shooting is scheduled to begin April 12th. Rumors are running that the real life boyfriend of co-star Kirsten Dunst, Jake Gyllenhaal (The Good Girl) may take his place.
Updated 3/19: USA Today says it ain’t true…at least that he’s not coming back. He does have a sore back, but should be fully recovered.
