Paul Verhoeven to direct ‘Eternal’

Supernatural thriller comes from Sidney Kimmel

Paul Verhoeven is feeling “Eternal,” signing to direct the supernatural thriller for Sidney Kimmel Entertainment.

“Eternal” will be produced by Kimmel, John Penotti of Greene Street, Peter Block of A Bigger Boat and Charles Segars of Sparkler Entertainment.

SKE production prexy Matt Berenson told Daily Variety that the banner plans to shoot the project in mid-2011.

The script, penned by “Obsessed” writer David Loughery, centers on a recovering alcholic who believes that he’s cheated on his wife — only to discover that the other woman is a ghost who is in pursuit of his soul. Richard D’Ovidio will re-write.

Verhoeven signed on this summer to direct historical drama “Hidden Force,” produced by “Black Book” producer San Fu Maltha and based on the novel by Louis Couperus.
