Paul Verhoeven (“Basic Instinct,” “Total Recall”) has signed on to direct the supernatural thriller “Eternal” for Sidney Kimmel Entertainment reports Variety.
The story centers on a recovering alcholic who believes that he’s cheated on his wife, only to learn that ‘the other woman’ is a ghost who is after his soul. Richard D’Ovidio will re-write a script by David Loughery (“Obsessed”).
Kimmel, John Penotti, Peter Block and Charles Segars will produce. Shooting kicks off mid-next year, likely after Verhoeven finishes his adaptation of Louis Couperus’ historical drama novel “Hidden Force”.
