Sharon Stone says Basic Instinct 2 is ready to roll
After a protracted legal dispute that was eventually dropped, a sequel to the controversial erotic thriller Basic Instinct is now on track, actress Sharon Stone said on Access Hollywood on Monday. Stone, 46, told the syndicated entertainment show that development on Basic Instinct 2 was in the early stages. "We are putting it together now," she said. "We don't have a production schedule yet." The original 1992 film--which drew protests from gays and lesbians over the lack of positive queer images in movies--made a household name of Stone, who starred opposite Michael Douglas as bisexual novelist and ice-pick-wielding femme fatale Catherine Tramell. Stone also denied the film had been delayed by her purported list of demands. "Well, funny enough, we are making the movie now, and nothing has changed, so there you are," she said.
