In February 2020 Warner Bros. released his sixth theatrical feature Nightlife starring Elias M'Barek and Frederik Lau, which started as number 1 of the German box office. The comedy had sold over 1 million tickets within 10 days of release, when the Covid-19 crisis forced all cinemas to close down, stopping its success in the tracks.


Returning to his homeland, Verhoeven landed a huge hit with his aforementioned political comedy Welcome to Germany (2016) that convinced audiences as well as critics world-wide. The film marks also a special collaboration, since Verhoeven directed his mother for the first time, the international screen & TV actress Senta Berger. His film got adapted for the stage, premiering at the Akademietheater of the world-famous Viennese Burgtheater. Many travelling productions followed that tour the German-language stages until today.


With his first English-language feature film Friend Request (2014) starring Alycia Debnam Carrey, Verhoeven tried his hand in the horror genre. The film made a respectable $2m opening weekend gross at the US box office. Additionally the German production sold well at the international film markets and was screened in theaters worldwide.


As his writing & directing idols, Simon Verhoeven names the comedy legends Billy Wilder and Ernst Lubitsch – who both started their careers in Germany before moving to Hollywood.

Before following in his father Michael Verhoeven's filmmaking footsteps – an infamous political auteur of the New German Cinema who caused the shutdown of the Berlinale Competition in 1970 –, Simon Verhoeven started out as a screen and TV actor like his mother Senta Berger, who in her 70-year-spanning career starred alongside international screen legends Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, John Wayne, Kirk Douglas, Jeanne Moreau, Alain Delon, Yul Brynner, Charlton Heston, Albert Finney, Robert Vaughn, Robert Wagner, and many more.


Simon Verhoeven belongs to the most bankable German film directors and screenwriters of the 2010s until today. His most successful film so far has been Welcome to Germany (Willkommen bei den Hartmanns), which became 2016's biggest domestic theatrical release in Germany with over 4 million tickets sold and a global box office of almost $50m. This comedy about the 2015 refugee crisis was screened at many international film festivals, and it won many German as well as international awards and nominations.


Verhoeven's last acting parts so far were cameos in his two Men in the City comedies (2009 + 2011).


The Verhoevens have been working in acting and directing for generations: Simon Verhoeven's grandfather Paul Verhoeven (not the Dutch filmmaker of the same name) ran the renowned Deutsches Theater in Berlin as well as the Munich Kammerspiele. Michael Verhoeven's sister Lis Verhoeven was a stage actress and director who was briefly married to international screen actor Mario Adorf. Simon Verhoeven's brother Luca is also an actor who debuted in Simon's first cinematic directorial effort 100 Pro (2001). The family legacy on stage and screen was captured in the documentary film The Verhoevens (2003).

Back in Germany, he acted in many made-for-TV romantic comedies, but Verhoeven also took on more substantial roles particularly in films based on true events: In Bruce Beresford's Bride of the Wind (2001) he plays Bauhaus director Walter Gropius, in Sönke Wortmann's The Miracle of Bern (2006) he embodies the 1954 football World Cup winner Ottmar Walter, in The Sinking of the Laconia (2010) he is the 1940s naval officer Harro Schacht, and in the multi-award-winning thriller Mogadischu (2008), he plays the Lufthansa flight 181 pilot Jürgen Vietor in this retelling of the 1977 Palestinian hostage crisis.


Simon Verhoeven landed his first film role while still studying in New York, playing in the 1995 indie comedy Party Girl next to Parker Posey and Liev Schreiber. The same year he was directed by his father in My Mother's Courage. In the Russian-German co-production Vasilia (2000) he worked alongside punk icon Nina Hagen.


After finishing highschool in Munich 1991, Simon Verhoeven moved to New York to study acting at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute. In his New York years he also studied jazz composition under Don Friedman, and later took classes in film music scoring at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. In 1995 Verhoeven got accepted at the New York University Tisch School of the Arts to study screenwriting and film directing; he graduated as a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1999.


After making a few short films and music videos in the late 1990s, Verhoeven's screenwriting and directing career started in 2001 with the buddy comedy 100 Pro. He followed up with his 2009 ensemble comedy Men in the City (Männerherzen), which sold over 2 million tickets at the domestic box office. This success sparked the equally successful sequel Men in the City 2 in 2011 (also written & directed by Verhoeven), as well as a number of international remakes in the Netherlands, Belgium, and other countries.


Simon Verhoeven (born in Munich on 20 June 1972) is an award-winning German film director, screenwriter, film producer, former actor, and occasional film music composer.


Simon Verhoeven and his father run their own production company, Sentana Filmproduktion, which Michael Verhoeven and Senta Berger founded already in 1965.
