Jeff Maguire

Maguire entered the industry in 1981 as a co-writer of the original story (subsequently completely rewritten) for John Huston's "Victory," a generally reviled WWII POW soccer movie starring Sylvester Stallone, Michael Caine, and soccer great Pele. Five years later he co-wrote the story for "Toby McTeague" (1986), an obscure Canadian-produced French-language children's feature about parenting and dog sled racing in Northern Quebec. "In the Line of Fire," a project with a nine-year genesis in development hell, became Maguire's first credit as a screenwriter. This tense and thought-provoking political thriller provided an excellent showcase for stars Eastwood and John Malkovich and earned Maguire an Oscar nomination.
