In the sexy and sleek psychological thriller Basic Instinct 2, after re-locating from San Francisco to London, best-selling crime novelist Catherine Tramell (Sharon Stone) once again finds herself on the wrong side of the law. Dr. Michael Glass (David Morrissey), a respected London criminal psychiatrist, is brought in by Scotland Yard detective Roy Washburn to perform a psychiatric profile and evaluation of Tramell following the mysterious death of a top sports star.
Physically drawn to Tramell and mentally intrigued by her, Glass, against the advice of his mentor, Dr. Milena Gardosh, is quickly sucked into her web of lies and seduction. The professional boundaries between Glass and Tramell are obliterated when she uncovers his basic instincts. A deadly battle of wits ensues, climaxing as Glass faces a choice that will change both their lives forever.

The 48-year-old actress just launched Basic Instinct 2: Risk Addiction, in which she returns as Catherine Tramell alongside British co-star David Morrissey. She hopes Morrissey and others will keep the series going.
“I’m hoping David will carry the flag,” Stone said. “I'll just go to the movies to watch it and say: 'Yeah baby!'”
Stone also commented on the difficulty of doing justice to the original 1992 hit. “The un-crossing of the legs scenes with Michael Douglas was a very impactful moment,” she explained. “I can't imagine that we're going to create a similar or groundbreaking moment.”
