More Sex and the City movies? Believe it

Sex and the CityJust as the Sex and the City movie is surging to the top of the box office charts -- beating out week two of Indiana Jones -- Michael Patrick King is cashing in on the success. DreamWorks has offered the writer/director/producer of Sex and the City a first-look deal for future film project. And one of those future films could be sequel to the new Sex and the City movie. This may seem unimaginable, but -- come on -- this is Hollywood. If this film does boffo box office, which seems likely based on a $26 million Friday, why wouldn't Warner Bros. and New Line cash in with another episode from the lives of Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte?

According to King, he wasn't thinking of launching the ladies into a film series, especially since they had such a good run on HBO and are still doing well on cable. "I wrote that movie with a beginning, middle and end because I didn't want to leave the audience unfulfilled. The actresses are great, and if the gods smile and people are still interested, why not?"

That must be music to the ears of Warner Brothers and New Line executives. By tonight, Sex and the City's box office should be at $75 million in the U.S. alone. It's well on the way to making back its cost and will be a legitimate hit.

Dreamworks wants the gods to smile on whatever King can cook up for them motion picture-wise. In this era where it's getting harder and harder to appeal to female movie-goers, where romantic comedies have been getting Judd Apatow-ed so that the guy is the driving force in the story, not the gal, King may be just what women need.
Stacey Snider, CEO of Dreamworks thinks so. "King writes for audiences that are hungry for real characters and human stories."

And if that doesn't sound like women's pictures to you, listen to King. "I want to write bigger stories about love and what it all means."

Hmm... another 2½ hours of looking at Sarah Jessica's warts on a gigantic screen?

I really don't see how they could have a sequel to SATC. The movie is a perfect series finale. It wraps up all of the major characters stories, and for them to do a sequel there would have to be something dramatic to bring them all back together. I like the happy ending the film gives to the women and I'd prefer to think of those characters living their lives, in their respective relationships and still hanging out together for a Cosmo or two. It would just be a shame to consider dollar signs over the integrity of the characters and story that has been constructed over the years, and then disappointing the fans in the long run. It's perfect as is now...just let it go!

Please, if you're going to write a blog that hundreds of people will read, do us the favor of reading through it at least once before posting. Your grammar was horrendous. You left out words numerous times and your spelling and tense were pretty bad, as well, especially toward the beginning.

It's just a tip, but you make yourself look very uneducated and raw when you don't even take the time to ensure you're posting a completely readable product. Thanks.

Didn't one of the women hold out for a long time and that's why they never made a movie?

This whole thing is a joke, I hate it. If they wanted to continue they could have continued with the show.
