nicky1975 -> Not happy about this choice of film for him. (12/11/2007 9:29:21 AM)

If he does this film it should be after "Azazel", a Moscow police thriller set in the 1870s with Milla Jovavich. I hope he doesnt do a Thomas Crown 2, He 's always said he never wanted to do sequels and had trouble with "Basic Instinct 2". If he's back in Hollywood I'd love to see him pick up where he left off with "Crusades"...though Ahnold is a bit too old now, "isn't it?" as he would say.

This could be quite a lot of fun. A heist film by Veerhoeven? Sign me up.




mjscarface -> Interesting (12/11/2007 12:57:48 PM)

But I can't remember why Thomas Crown would need to skewer, shoot and squib his way through an art gallery lol.




Manfrendshensindshen -> Awkward choice - but all the more interesting for it (12/11/2007 1:45:26 PM)

Aldough de conshept didn't convinsh me I'm now at leasht a bit exshited to she what de Dutch can make of it.




thegodfathers -> Intresting (12/11/2007 2:05:30 PM)

Man o Man he should've made the first AVP.




chizmund -> Kuyt Bashing! (12/11/2007 4:15:09 PM)

Enough with the Kuyt-bashing already! But regarding this news, it's gonna be very interesting to see what Verhoeven and Brosnan do with this. Let's face it, Brosnan's been wanting to get his kink on in a movie for an age!

Being from The Netherlands I can confirm that Verhoeven told this radio newsshow that he is to direct the 'Topkapi Affair' but that he did not yet know how much the writers' strike would affect the making of this movie...




Bluehawk -> True (12/11/2007 10:20:24 PM)

As a fellow journalist from The Netherlands: it's true. The source is reliable enough, so don't worry. The Empire Tower of Truth is still standing (although it leans a bit like that silly Tower in Pisa...).




callumcostello -> (13/11/2007 12:53:52 PM)

Yknow bashing Dirk Kuyt is easy unless, like me, you support Newcastle....




Mason Verger -> RE: (29/12/2007 12:19:40 PM)

Topkapi is on Sunday 30 December at 3.45pm on Five.

And the second.
And the Starship Troopers followups.
And the Robocop follow ups.
and...
and...
and...
and maybe not Showgirls. [:D]




Deviation -> RE: Intresting (29/12/2007 7:02:07 PM)

He did Starship Troopers, one of the greatest films of all time, only for that, I'll be eager to see this film




Kazuya -> RE: Paul Verhoeven To Direct Thomas Crown 2 (29/12/2007 7:14:33 PM)

Interesting, I liked McTiernan's first film, so I'm all for a sequel. Especially if Verhoeven's doing it, he's one of the best directors in the world IMO.




max314 -> RE: Paul Verhoeven To Direct Thomas Crown 2 (29/12/2007 7:41:02 PM)

I actually had a good time with Brosnan's first Thomas Crown, so I don't at all mind giving this one a go.

I'm not the biggest Verhoeven fan, but I'm sure he'll pull it off.




King of Kafiristan -> RE: Paul Verhoeven To Direct Thomas Crown 2 (22/2/2012 11:34:46 PM)

So has this just fizzled out? I love the Pierce Brosnan THOMAS CROWN, it's one of the most elegant thrillers of the 90s, in my opinion. Pure class. TOPKAPI is probably one of my all time favorite films, and I think a pseudo remake could be a perfect vehicle to continue Brosnan's heisting adventures. I remember reading about this several years ago now, with nary a word or update since. Can someone enlighten me as to what may have happened with this project?

Verhoeven is a fantastic director, but after the success of BLACK BOOK, he's just disappeared it seems..

THis seems like the last time it was mentioned - 2 years ago. http://www.empireonline.com/news/feed.asp?NID=26944

I appreciate the link, thanks! This has been one of those projects I keep hoping I'll hear more about.
