VIXEN'S RETURN

After lengthy legal wrangling, Sharon Stone says her erotic thriller Basic Instinct 2 is a go. "We are putting it together now," she told last night's Access Hollywood. "We don't have a production schedule yet." The 1992 original made a star of Stone, who vamped proudly as leg-crossin', ice-pick-wieldin' novelist Catherine Tramell. The 46-year-old vaguely denied that her list of diva demands delayed the sequel: "Well, funny enough, we are making the movie now, and nothing has changed, so there you are." Thanks for clearing that up, Shar. read more
