In a venture to change movie history and capitalize on popular current films, Hollywood executives have decided to remake some semi contemporary classics such as Sophie's Choice, which will star Sharon Stone and conversely cast Meryl Streep in Basic Instincts. Yes, that scene will remain.

"After playing Nixon, Picasso and Hannibal Lector, the American Gigolo will be like a piece of cake. I'll have to lose about fifty pounds. Possibly I can donate the cake and fifty pounds to the Michael Douglas project."
