He's played a jockey, a soldier, a superhero and too many students to count, but now Tobey Maguire: race car driver?

Variety reports that the "Spider-Man" franchise star is set to star in "The Limit" for Columbia Pictures. 

Base on an upcoming book by Michael Cannell, "Limit" finds Maguire playing real life racer Phil Hill who went up against his good friend and Ferrari teammate Wolfgang von Trips in the 1961 Driver's Championship.

No director is on board yet, but Anthony Peckham will adapt Cannell's novel and Maguire will co-produce along with Mandalay Pictures.

Maguire will be seen next alongside Jake Gyllenhaal and Natalie Portman in Jim Sheridan's "Brothers."
