Besides his role in the upcoming film Spider-Man 3, Tobey Maguire has signed on to produce and star in an adaptation of the Billy Chaka novel Tokyo Superpunch for Sony Pictures.

Tokyo Superpunch

I have never even heard a whisper of this book-- Tokyo Superpunch. But it does seem to have turned some heads to have Tobey Maguire [with Sony] signed on to produce and star in the film. Here is a synopsis of Tokyo Superpunch from the official site:

Meet Billy Chaka, ace reporter for Youth in Asia, Cleveland’s hottest selling Asian teen-rag. Chaka is in Tokyo to cover the Under-19 Handicapped World Martial Arts Championship and meet with his friend Sato Migusho, the renowned director of cult film classics like "Sex-Up the Hotrod, Baby!"

But Sato never shows. Instead, a woman stumbles into a dive bar with tattooed yakuza in hot pursuit. Then Chaka discovers that Sato has been murdered, and the strange and beautiful woman just may have been a witness.

As the mystery deepens, Billy will start brawls in swanky corporate sex clubs, be offered a golf membership by a secret religious order, meet a dog trained in the Way of the Samurai and race stolen motorcycles through the neon-choked streets of Tokyo.

Stay tuned for updates! Read more on the adaptation at Variety
