Andrew Jarecki's mystery-romance 'All Good Things,' starring Ray Gosling, Kirsten Dunst and Frank Langella, has been picked up by Magnolia Pictures, which is planning a December theatrical release, according to Variety. The film was inspired by the true story of Robert Durst, a scion of the Durst family, who was suspected of -- but never tried for -- killing his wife Kathie after she disappeared in 1982 and was never found. "Because it is impossible to know exactly what happened, we have not tried to replicate the history of the case, but to capture the emotion and complexity of this unsolved mystery that has for years been kept hidden from public view," Jarecki said.
Paul Verhoeven, who has slowly been moving away from directing sleaze and science fiction, will next direct 'Hidden Force,' an historical drama that takes place in 1900 on the island of Java in the Dutch East Indies and is based on the novel by Louis Couperus. According to Variety, 'Hidden Force' was originally adapted into a Dutch TV series in 1974. Verhoeven, whose family lived in the East Indies (now Indonesia), said in an announcement that he's always wanted to direct a film about the former Dutch colony. The book is described as being about a colonial official who is undone by his wilful application of reason to a culture that is steeped in the mystical and irrational. 'Hidden Force,' which is Verhoeven's first movie since 'Black Book' in 2006, is expected to be released in winter 2011.
