After plenty of hedging and hinting, we now have an official report that the makers of HBO's hit series "Sex and the City" will make a feature-length movie based on the show. Production is scheduled to begin in the fall. The article continues:
Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon are all set to reprise their roles, with longtime exec producer Michael Patrick King directing a script he wrote.
The film got close to happening about two years ago, but progress halted when Cattrall backed away. She wanted script controls and a salary close to that of Parker, who was more highly paid than the others because she was co-executive producer of the series. Whatever tensions existed are gone now, sources said. Cattrall has a deal she’s happy with, one the sources said gives her input on her scenes, a fat salary and a future series deal with HBO.
No news yet on whether other actors from the show (ahem, Chris Noth) will be back for the movie, but I'll keep you posted. Here's hoping the movie version comes out well and doesn't taint the fond memories I have of the original series!
