Some franchises end painfully early, their creators adamant that their material will be remembered and cherished for going out on top. Some don’t. Some go on until it hurts – and we can smell one coming around the corner.
Not even a week after the general release of Basic Instinct 2, its star, Sharon Stone, has expressed her interest in directing a third movie in the franchise.
Sounding pretty definite about the project going ahead, Stone stated, “there's a script for the next part of the story - but I would like to direct it rather than star in it. It will be filmed in the UK again as the setting is more intense and gritty.”
Basic Instinct 2 was helmed by Scots lenser Michael Caton-Jones and has, so far, hoovered up over $13 million at the worldwide box office.
Stone stars alongside Brit actors David Morrissey and David Thewlis, reprising her role as serial leg-crosser Catherine Tramell, from the original 1992 flick directed by Paul Verhoeven.
