Sex And The City Movie Sequal
Sex and the City - Queens including Sarah Jessica Parker confirmed this week that there will be a Sex and the City sequel.
At a release party for the DVD, in stores this Tuesday, Sarah Parker and creator Michael Patrick King confirmed the follow-up to Fox News. He's writing the screenplay this fall, and Parker and Kim Cattrall, who was the major stumbling block for the first film getting off the ground, say they're both excited to read the new script.
Candace Bushnell, who wrote the original novel, says she's hard at work on two new books based on the young Carrie Bradshaw.
We're getting Sex and the City prequels, at least in print. When pressed on who should play Carries, Bushnell mentioned Miley Cyrus, although that seemed like she was just drawing a name out of a hat. The Carrie Years, which is what they series would be called, would be aimed at teenagers, specifically "Carrie's friendships, romances and how she realised her dream of becoming a writer," reports The Guardian.
"Carrie in high school did not follow the crowd - she led it," Bushnell said. "It was there that she began observing and commenting on the social scene.". Oh, you mean like Gossip Girl?
I honestly don't see what good a sequel does, unless there's trouble on the Carrie/Big front. And in that case, why the hell did we have to sit through the first movie? A prequel makes a bit more sense - introducing the characters to each others' worlds, attracting a younger audience - but even then, I'm skeptical. When thing feel like they come to a natural conclusion, like the TV series, it's best to listen to that.
Sure, the movie made $25 million on one day and was a huge hit internationally, but if you're weighing art vs. commerce, art is clearly the loser in this situation. You can make the case that because the movie and the series end with the same emotional conclusion, that we didn't really advance the characters much the last time we saw them, so money has already won out.
Don't get me wrong:
The show was too important, both to women and to television comedies, to not get a huge payday. They deserved a big, successful movie. And they got it. Time for Carrie and the girls to grow old gracefully.
That's my opinion. Parker has her own. "Letâ€™s wring everything we can out of this thing," she said at the DVD release party. And that appears to be exactly what they're doing.
Stay Tuned for more sex....
