LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - After a tumultuous development history, "Basic Instinct 2" is back on track with Scottish filmmaker Michael Caton-Jones in negotiations to direct MGM's sequel to the 1992 murder mystery.
The move comes within two months of the producers, Andy Vajna and Mario Kassar, settling a three-year-old lawsuit with actress Sharon Stone, who claimed they had promised to pay her at least $14 million even if the film was not made.
Stone is now set to reprise her role as Catherine Tramell, the manipulative, seductive novelist at the heart of a murder investigation in the original. That film, her last big hit, also starred Michael Douglas (news) and was directed by Paul Verhoeven.
The sequel was originally due to go into production in 2000, albeit without Douglas and Verhoeven, who reportedly had problems with each other the first time around. Several directors were attached, including John McTiernan, who pulled out after Stone reportedly vetoed Benjamin Bratt (news) as her co-star.
Caton-Jones has most recently been working on "Shooting Dogs," which is based on the true story of a Catholic priest and an English teacher caught in the Rwandan genocide. Before that, he helmed "City by the Sea," toplining Robert De Niro (news) and Frances McDormand. His other credits include "The Jackal," "Rob Roy" and "Memphis Belle."
