Paul Verhoven, director of subtle high brow fare such as Hollow Man, Starship Troopers, Showgirls, Basic Instinct, Total Recall, and Robocop is planning to release a novel later this year. Anyone anticipating what would surely be one of the most interesting auto-biography’s of all time will be disappointed, as will anyone expecting a porn and violence epic from the man who finally found a way to mix the two effectively and serve it to the masses like a soup kitchen during war times.
No no, its going to be about religion. But before you yawn yourself to death, take a look at its synopsis:
The Dutch filmmaker, who has had a lifelong ambition to make a film about Jesus based on scientific research, claims that Jesus’ father was probably a Roman soldier who raped Mary during the Jewish uprising in Galilee. He also claims that Christ was not betrayed by Judas Iscariot.
And appearantly this is only the tip of his heavely researched, new age iceberg of the biography of Mr. J. H. Christ. Either way, he’ll be the most hated man in literature since Dan Brown.
