It looks like Tobey Maguire has a bit of a dark er, Venom side. Showing more interest in his kid than the Spider-Man franchise, Columbia Pictures is going to have to hand over some major skrilla to get the actor back onboard.

Maguire Getting Paid for Spider-Man Sequels

What does it take to get Tobey Maguire back to the Spider-Man franchise? Check this out (according to TimesOnline):

Rule 1: Spider-Man sequels (two of them) shot back to back over the course of six months.

Rule 2: Maguire will not work mornings or evenings. But some time in the small window of noon you can find him on set. Working minimal hours per day will allow the actor to spend time with his daughter, Ruby Sweetheart.

Rule 3: He will receive somewhere near $50 million for the films.

Rule 4: He will also be entitled to profit sharing.

Think I'm exaggerating? Think not.

Maguire was originally not expected to return to negotiations, forcing Sony to look elsewhere for a Peter Parker replacement. Things finally changed gears when Sony chairman, Amy Pascal, herself a mother, stepped in, saying six months without family time would not be fair on any parent.

While Maguire claims that no amount of money would draw him away from his kid, one must admit that $50 million is a strong start.
