Tobey Maguire is "interested" in making a movie version of new book 'Hero Complex'.

The 'SPIDER-MAN' actor is said to have taken to the idea of making a film based on how a man transforms himself into a superhero after being a geek in his school years, based on the latest project by Marc Bernardin and Adam Freeman.

Speaking to, Tobey said: "Well we are excited that Tobey Maguire is interested.

"Having someone who has played in that space before is perfect because he both gives it credibility and lets the audience wink at this story a bit with us."

Discussing where the pair got the idea for the book, Marc reveals they both came up with it when they were attending their own high school reunions.

He said: "'Hero Complex' came from both of us hitting our 20-year high school reunion and wondering: "What happens when a guy who was the 100-pound weakling in high school, but has since become a full-fledged superhero, goes to his reunion? What happens when a changed man goes back home again?" We found a lot of grist for that particular mill. And a lot of humour."
