Collymore lands Stone sequel role
Stan Collymore
Stan Collymore has had a colourful career
Ex-England footballer Stan Collymore will appear alongside actress Sharon Stone in the sequel to blockbuster Basic Instinct, it has been confirmed.

The former Aston Villa and Liverpool striker has got a cameo role in Basic Instinct 2: Risk Addiction.

Filming starts on Monday at Pinewood Studios and on location in London.

A film spokeswoman would not divulge details about the former Liverpool player's role but said: "It is only a small part but he has been confirmed."

She added: "He has really just only been signed.

"I can't go into detail of character or the plot. There is a certain amount of mystery."

Killed off

Both the Sun and the Daily Mirror said Collymore, 34, would only feature in the opening scenes of the film before his character was killed off.

In an eventful footballing career, Collymore was on the books of 11 different clubs - including Nottingham Forest, Liverpool and Leicester - and earned three England caps.

He became equally well-known for his off-field behaviour.

Sex controversy

Collymore gained notoriety in 1998 when he hit his then-girlfriend, TV presenter Ulrika Jonsson.

Last year he admitted participating in "dogging" - voyeuristic sex with strangers, which led to him losing his job as a pundit with BBC Radio Five Live.

The original 1992 Basic Instinct film, which starred Michael Douglas and catapulted Stone to stardom, became famous for the moment she uncrossed her legs.

In the sequel, Stone reprises her role as ice pick-wielding killer Catherine Tramell.

British actor David Morrissey plays a criminal psychiatrist appointed by Scotland Yard to evaluate her and soon falls under her spell.
