Two years after first being announced, the sequel to 1999’s Pierce Brosnan-led remake of The Thomas Crown Affair is still in development — but if you’ve been impatient to see Brosnan return to his suave, precious goods-stealin’ roots, ComingSoon has good news for you.

According to a report published over the weekend at ComingSoon (via FilmTotaal), the Thomas Crown sequel — titled The Topkapi Affair — has a director, and his name is Paul Verhoeven. The Basic Instinct director apparently shared the news with Met Het Oog Op Morgen, a Dutch radio program.

As we’ve been discussing here since September 2005, The Topkapi Affair will be an adaptation of Eric Ambler’s novel Light of Day, which previously journeyed to the big screen under the guise of 1964’s Topkapi. In other words, the Thomas Crown remake is being given a sequel that is also a remake…of another, unrelated film.

This has to be some kind of cinematic first, right? Please let it be a first.
