LOS ANGELES, Feb 7, 2009 / FW/ — Expect more ‘sex’ during the summer of 2010. Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon have signed up for a sequel of Sex & the City, New Line Cinema announced Thursday.
According from the same announcement, writer-director Michael Patrick King has also been signed. Interestingly enough, Candace Bushnell, original creator of Sex & the City, wherein the HBO series was based was not mentioned if she is going to be involved in the project.
Sex & the City is not alone in successfully changing its format from a weekly show to a full feature film. Though from the sci-fi genre, Star Trek and Star Gate SG1 have also graduated to full feature films. Like Sex & the City, Star Trek is going to be shown in theaters, but Star Gate SG1 goes straight to DVD.
Since viewers and fans of SATC seem to have an insatiable appetite for the series, perhaps, a straight to DVD concept will be a good route to take so that we can see a sequel once a year, and not once every two years.
