Stone Lands A Director For Basic Instinct 2

Sexy SHARON STONE has recruited a director and a leading man for the sequel to the film that made her a star.

Stone, 42, has recruited DIE HARD director JOHN MCTIERNAN and 13 DAYS leading man BRUCE GREENWOOD to help her get the project on track. Reports say that the film will be shot in New York and "will definitely take place before the strike" expected this spring.

Greenwood's manager said, "We're in negotiations. If and when the picture moves ahead, Greenwood will be in it." (PDD/WNWCPS)
