Paul Verhoeven (Black Book) is attached to direct sexual-thriller The Student, and has offered Halle Berry (Monster’s Ball) the lead role.

Verhoeven and Berry were supposed to collaborate on The Surrogate, but the film fell through at the production stage.

The Student centers on a 19 year old kid who takes up a summer internship… and then takes up with his boss’ wife (Berry).

The film is set up at Relativity Media, and production looks set to commence later this year.

Berry will next be seen in indie-drama Frankie & Alice, for which she received a Golden Globe nomination.
