Sex and the City sequel - a good idea?

Sex and the City cast from the movieI just watched the Sex and the City movie for the first time last night. I was a big fan of the TV show, and I really enjoyed the movie. Just like Serenity, it's always fun when a favorite TV show makes it to the big screen.

Coincidentally, this week I also learned that there is a Sex and the City movie sequel in the works. The girls have officially signed on ... but for what? Here's where the problem lies for me: Sex and the City was a great series and a decently entertaining movie. Can they really pull it off again?

I am always wary of sequels, but this case really gets me quaking in my boots. They are so lucky they pulled the movie off as a success. I loved seeing Carrie and Big finally tie the knot, I wept for Charlotte who finally has the life she's always dreamed of, and Miranda finally came around and accepted being a part of a family. And Samantha? Well, we got to see her acknowledge her selfishness, but at least it was in character. Why should Samantha evolve? I even loved Jennifer Hudson as Carrie's assistant.

Andrew McCarthy: In the Limelight

andrew mccarthyWhile the casting for the ladies to play the power brokers on NBC's Lipstick Jungle was imperative, no less attention was paid for the men with whom those women would be romantically entwined. For the character of Joe Bennett, the enigmatic, high-powered, complicated Prince Charming with a dark side, producers had to be looking for just the right combination of sexual appeal and sensitive undercurrent. They found the right guy when Andrew McCarthy was cast. The former Brat Packer could be the find of the TV season; the new McDreamy.

Sex and the City creator's book coming to TV?

by Adam Finley, posted Aug 26th 2005 12:25PM

If you're unlike me and never found Sex and the City to be a show whose writing and acting was sub-soap opera at best, you might be interested to know that Sex creator Candace Bushnell's latest book Lipstick Jungle might be turned into a TV show. The book finds Bushnell in her New York comfort zone again and focuses on the lives of three career women. Nothing is finalized as of right now, but given the success of Sex and the City, I can't imagine someone isn't jumping at the chance to make this.
