Strike while the iron is hot...

Things seem to be progressing apace with Basic Instinct 2: Risk Addiction, which is due for a 2006 release, a mere fourteen years after the film that kicked off the 'erotic thriller' genre. Sharon Stone returns in her signature role of Catherine Tramell, although Michael Douglas has apparently opted out.

The film finds Tramell in London, matching wits with a Scotland Yard psychiatrist Dr. Glass. According to the IMDB, "like Detective Nick Curran [Douglas] before him, Glass is entranced by Tramell and lured into a seductive game."

Genre vet Charlotte Rampling and David "Island of Dr. Moreau" Thewlis have also been cast.

I've never seen the original, but now I know that the characters played by Stone and Douglas both lived at the end. Trivial Pursuit, here I come!
