"Sex in the City" Film Finally Ready To Go

Variety reports that New Line is planning a film based on HBO’s long running sex-com "Sex in the City." Production on this project has seen multiple stages of arousal but it’s only now that reports of actual action on the project are popping up.

Cast member Kim Cattrall interrupted development on this production two years ago when she requested more script control and a salary similar to that of Sarah Jessica Parker, the show’s star and one of "Sex"’s exec-producers. Ultimately, all struggles ended with a bigger check, script control, and promises of an HBO series for Cattrall.

Back in February, Aussie publication The Age reported the recent summer success of "Devil Wears Prada" as reason to revive the "Sex" gang of four for the screen. A prize package trip to New York with $2,000 spending money to ‘let fans live like Carrie Bradshaw’ was added to sweeten the pot.

Creator Michael Patrick King is set to write and direct, and presuming the warm up is a good one all four of the girl gang (Parker, Cattrall, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis) are signed on and expected to arrive primed for action. Supporting actor Mario Cantone, who plays Anthony Marantino, has already announced he’s in. There’s no word yet, however, on the return or involvement of Big (Chris Noth).
