Paul Verhoeven Directing Spicy, Supernatural Thriller 'Eternal'
We've previously heard about a few different projects with this filmmaker involved, and now we can add yet another one into the mix. Having previously directed films like Showgirls and Basic Instinct, director Paul Verhoeven is no stranger to the erotic, and it looks like he is headed back to the same territory. Deadline says Verhoeven has made a deal to direct Eternal, a supernatural thriller described as Fatal Attraction, but with a "succubus temptress." The idea and script comes from David Loughery, behind the sensual thriller Obsessed. Production is slated for next summer, but it's not clear if this will be Verhoeven's next project.
In the story, after a recovering alcoholic stops a woman from jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge, they end up sleeping together and creating quite the spicy love affair. Upon returning home, his wife confronts him along with a private investigator who has photos to catch him in the act. However, the photos only show him alone drinking the night away with his mistress nowhere to be found. Though at first he thinks himself crazy, he discovers that his lover is a ghost who is after his soul. Yep, homeboy fucked a ghost. Sidney Kimmel Entertainment is producing along with A Bigger Boat, Greene Street Films and Sparkler Entertainment. Sound interesting or just plain silly?
