Stone Crosses The Line For "Basic Instinct 2" ...

February 6, 2006

According to reports, US censors have cut a sex scene out of "Basic Instinct 2: Risk Addiction".

Britain's Daily Star newspaper quotes a Sony studio spokesman saying that the upcoming film is "... a hard 'R' rated movie which means it includes strong sexuality, nudity, violence, language and some drug content."

Previous to the cut, the censors had threatened to give the film an NC-17 rating which would have excluded under 18 audiences.

The MPAA did reportedly allow a sequence featuring Stone's character having sex as she drives a sports car through the streets of London at high speed.

The sequel "Basic Instinct 2", starring actress Sharon Stone, opens wide this coming March.

Directed by Michael Caton-Jones and written by Leora Barish/Henry Bean, the Columbia Pictures/MGM production focuses on psychotic novelist 'Catherine Tramell' (Stone).

Scotland Yard appoints psychiatrist 'Dr. Michael Glass' (David Morrissey) to evaluate the beauty, but like Michael Douglas' 'Det Nick Curran' in the first film, Glass is seduced by Tramell's deadly head-games.

Other notable cast include 1970's fave Charlotte "Zardoz" Rampling as 'Milena Gardosh', David "Dragonheart" Thewlis as 'Roy Washburn', Hugh "Blackhawk Down" Dancy as 'Michael Tower', Anne Caillon as 'Laney Ward', Iain Robertson as 'Peter Ristedes' and Stan Collymore as 'Kevin Franks'.

Working title for the film is "Basic Instinct 2: Risk Addiction".
