Sharon Stone signs for Basic Instinct 2

July 14, 2004

LOS ANGELES — Hollywood star Sharon Stone has signed on to make a sequel to her steamy 1992 cult movie Basic Instinct after burying the ice-pick in her legal battle with producers, reports said Tuesday.

The 46-year-old star has dropped her lawsuit against producers of the sequel following a reported legal dispute over her salary and star perks that had put the future of the long-delayed project in serious doubt.

"We are putting it together now," Stone told entertainment show Access Hollywood of Basic Instinct 2. "We don't have a production schedule yet."

Stone is reportedly planning to reprise her nude scenes from the original 1992 picture that co-starred Michael Douglas, the most famous of which were her character's infamous leg-crossing antics during a police interview.

The original movie – in which Stone played a bisexual author-cum-serial killer who slays her victims with an ice-pick during sex – made Stone an international star and a coveted cult heroine.

But in her "Access Hollywood" interview, the star denied reports that her long list of diva demands – including a private house on location, nannies for her child and a special dressing room trailer – had delayed the project.

Website thesmokinggun.com printed a list of star perks it claimed had delayed the project and prompted Stone to sue producers for the 14 million dollars they had allegedly agreed to pay her for the role.

According to the document, Stone demanded that she be allowed to keep wardrobe and jewelry, get rights of approval on her caterer and also insisted that "no one receives better facilities" on the set.

Stone's representatives were not immediately available for comment. – Sapa-AFP
