Dutch Director Paul Verhoeven, who built his name
in America in the mid-1990s with films like Basic Instinct and the
much-maligned Showgirls, is set to direct a domestic
film again. Verhoeven has been tapped to direct and develop The Surrogate, a thriller for 20th Century Fox.
The project is based on a book, released in 2004, about a couple desperate to have a child. They hire a surrogate and much to their horror uncover that she is crazy. Halle Berry is said to be considering taking the role of the wife who hires the surrogate.
