Robocop and Basic Instinct director Paul Verhoeven is going to make the thriller The Surrogate for 20th Century Fox. Based on a 2004 novel by Kathryn Mackel the tale is about what happens when an infertile couple, desperate to have a baby, make an agreement for a surrogate mother to carry their child. As the pregnancy progresses the couple come to realize that the woman carring the baby is dangerously insane.
The film may have a title change to contend with if the upcoming Bruce Willis sci-fi movie Surrogates gets embedded in the cultural mindscape.
Ralph Winter, producer of the X-Men trilogy of films, will produce The Surrogate along with Deborah Giarratana, Robin Guthrie and Susana Zepeda. The screenplay is by Roderick Taylor and Bruce A. Taylor (The Brave One).
