Verhoeven Employs A Paperboy

Filmick reports that Paul Verhoeven’s next project will be an adaptation of Pete Dexter’s “The Paperboy” to shoot in early 2008.

Set in and around Moat County Florida in the 1960s, the novel is a murder investigation – crusading journalist – serial killer mystery.

A decade ago Pedro Almodovar tried to put the film into production, but it never got off the ground.

Verhoeven’s other new films “The Winter Queen” and “Kneeling on a Bed of Violets” are apparently still very much in the works.
