Paul Verhoeven has The Surrogate

Posted by LiveFor on May 29, 2009

The Dutch director, Paul Verhoeven (Black Book, Total Recall, Robocop, Hollow Man, Starship Troopers) has signed on to develop and direct The Surrogate, a thriller for 20th Century Fox.

It is based on the 2004 book by Kathryn Mackel, the story centers on a couple desperate to have a child who find themselves in an unbearable position when they find out the surrogate they hired to carry their baby is insane.

The description from the book is “Kyle and Bethany Dolan reel from years of infertility, miscarriages, and finally, a disastrous hysterectomy. They are desperate to find the perfect surrogate mother to carry their last frozen embryo. Sable Lynde, a computer genius with a dark history, is desperate to escape her own inner demons, her dark past, and a dangerous loan shark. Sable assumes the identity of a surrogacy candidate so perfect that the Dolans welcome her into their family without reservation. As the pregnancy progresses, the dangers of Sable’s deception escalate until the unthinkable happens–Sable’s dark demons spill out into the Dolans’ lives–even as she lies in a coma. A thrill-ride of suspense and terror, this novel leads readers to a breathtaking climax.”

The question is will this be good Verhoeven or Showgirls Verhoeven directing it?
