"Sex and the City" Movie Still Iffy
Sarah Jessica Parker who played Cosmopolitan-sipping and Minolo Blahniks-flashing sex columnist Carrie Bradshaw on HBO's classic soap "Sex and the City" still uses the word "if" when speaking about the big screen version of her hit series.
The actress gave interview to US Elle Magazine for their August edition (she also graces the cover of the September issue of Elle in the UK) expressing hope the movie would finally go into production:
"I am hopeful. I believe this time it's going to happen. I really wanted it to happen, and it was a bitter pill to swallow that it didn't. But you have to respect people's decisions. And one of us didn't want to do it at the time, for reasons that I didn't ask. It's not for me to talk anybody into anything, ever - creatively, financially, or whatever."
Meanwhile, TV Guide reported the film was finally given green light and the production would start in September. In her last week's interview at the launch of her Bitten clothing line in Chicago the actress however said:
"If we make it, I'm assuming it will be a summer '08 movie. ... We were always summer fare, so I think we'll stick with that."
IMDb however lists the New Line movie in pre-production and tentatively scheduled to start filming in the fall. In addition to the ladies, Chris Noth and Mario Cantone are expected to reprise their respective roles as Mr. Big and Charlotte's gay sidekick Anthony.
