Stone to Direct ‘Basic Instinct 3’....

http://www.hollywood.com/news/detail/id/3489109

Can't wait for this one!!!

The blonde star is keen to continue the franchise--following her return as Catherine Tramell in the recently released sequel--but wants to step behind the camera next time around.

Stone, 48, says, "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."

Unless is released straight to DVD, chances are that there won't be a Basic Instinct 3 after #2 BO take this past weekend.

I'll put up the cash if she can get Natalie Portman to play the lead.

Unless she's paying for it, there's no chance of it happening now. Try to get Scissors 2 greenlit instead.

Can we instead get a Poison Ivy 4 with Portman?

Not a chance this will happen. Unless the investor wants to lose all of his money.

When I saw the title, I thought the post date would surely be April 1st.

Doesn't this poor woman realize her career ended with the release of Sliver? Stick to doing stuff like Broken Flowers, that's what's best now.

Well, they should have got the sequel out when it was still hot (before the countless ripoffs, both theatrical and direct to video/Cinemax), when Sharon Stone didn't require fancy lighting and camera techniques to look good, and when they could have gotten a decent name co-star. Otherwise, they should have just caved in and sent this franchise straight-to-video a long time ago.

I find it amazing anyone was willing to put up $70 million for what was certain to be a flop. Ten years ago it might have flown, but it is WAAY past its time.

I remember about ten years or so ago they were batting around a sequel/prequel with David Cronenberg at the helm that would more or less go into Tramell's origins with Stone only appearing in bits of the movie. That would have been something worth seeing IMO, but I have the feeling since Stone's Tramell wouldn't have been the focus the whole time, she nixed it.

bc of the BO last weekend, i was sure SS would cancel all her upcoming appearences of talk shows. she cancelled on Jay, tuesday, i think, but not on Ellen. I was curious, so i saw. not one mention of BI 2 on either part! they talked about her being on "Huff" last night, but that was it. it was so funny. Ellen was prolly told to huff up.

Wow, somebody else that's heard of Scissors. I caught that on the late show once, and I've thought for a couple of years now I was the only person to ever see it.

That's exactly what I thought. I have very little interest in BI 2, but I would definitely check out an Oliver Stone directed sequel.
