Paul Verhoeven, known for directing classic films such as: BASIC INSTINCT, TOTAL RECALL, ROBOCOP and STARSHIP TROOPERS, has signed on to direct the historical drama THE HIDDEN FORCE. He will partner again with producer San Fu Maltha on the film (previously on the 2006 film BLACK BOOK), based on the novel by the same name and written by Louis Couperus. The novel tells the story of a man in a Dutch colony in 1900 who has problems adjusting to the ideas of other eastern cultures and ideas that are outside of his comfort zone. THE HIDDEN FORCE will most likely be presented in the Dutch language and is set to be released in winter of 2011.
