Peter Hedges, whose Dan in Real Life bows Friday, is attached to direct Everything Changes, Columbia's adaptation of the Jonathan Tropper book being produced by Tobey Maguire and Wendy Finerman. Maguire is eyeing the project as a starring vehicle.
Tropper's novel, published in March 2006, centers on a man on the verge of marrying the perfect girl when he undergoes a life crisis as he faces feelings for his recently deceased best friend's wife and also deals with the sudden arrival of his womanizing, estranged father.
Columbia picked up the book in 2004 for Maguire Entertainment and Wendy Finerman Prods.
Hedges was hired to adapt the book awhile back and fell in love with the material, ultimately deciding that he wanted to helm the project. Changes is not considered a pre-strike project.
Hedges has made a name for himself with his movies revolving around families. He was nominated for an Oscar for co-writing About a Boy and made his directorial debut on Pieces of April. He also adapted What's Eating Gilbert Grape, based on his novel.
