Black Book Helmer Handling The Topkapi Affair


Paul Verhoeven


MGM has appointed Paul Verhoeven to take the helming duties on this sequel to 1999's "The Thomas Crown Affair."

A directing name has finally been hired to take care of "The Topkapi Affair." Variety has given confirmation that the assigned person is none other than Paul Verhoeven, who recently drew praise for his 2006 thriller war flick "Black Book."

Verhoeven's inclusion thereby gives signal that MGM as the studio behind the sequel to 1999's "The Thomas Crown Affair" has committed to a big-budget picture instead. Production is reportedly due to start in January using locations in Europe.

Pierce Brosnan has long been learned to reprise his role as the titular debonair thief and corporate raider with a character named Nadia Badri as the new female lead. Actress to portray the role, however, has not yet been cast for now.

Story still centers on Crown, who this time becomes entangled in a centuries-old feud and must decide how much he's truly willing to risk for love. Apart from starring, Brosnan is also serving as the producer alongside Beau St. Clair and Dino Conte.
