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.

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

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...

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...).

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

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

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.

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.

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..

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