recently told the Australian interview show “A Current Affair” (via Yahoo
) that she is powerless when it comes to stopping the upcoming theatrical release of Paul Verhoeven
’s “Basic Instinct
” 4K restoration. The director supervised the restoration between 2019 and 2020, and put “bonus material from Sharon Stone and Michael Douglas” back into the movie, according to a press release from UK distributor StudioCanal
. The restoration is being released this summer to mark the film’s 30th anniversary.
“They’ve decided to release the director’s triple-x cut for the 30th anniversary,” Stone told “A Current Affair” host Tracy Grimshaw
, who then asked if Stone could do anything to prevent the movie from being re-released. “There are new [Screen Actors Guild] rules about that have been made and created, but they were made after I, as a young lady, made this film, and so they don’t apply to me.”
