The stars of SEX AND THE CITY have agreed deals to star in a big screen sequel, according to reports.
Just months after the first movie adaptation of the hit TV series became a box office hit – making more than $400 million (GBP285 million) worldwide – producers have gathered actresses Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, Kristin Davis and Kim Cattrall together, and thrashed out lucrative agreements for them to reprise their roles.
A source tells Us Weekly magazine, “Not all the contracts are signed, but everyone is on board. It just happened.”
Parker publicly rebuked Cattrall last year (08) after she prematurely announced the sequel was going ahead during an interview on TV in Britain.
Parker said, “I’m thrilled to know Kim is excited but all the deals are not yet done… We need to figure this out in the next couple of months.”
And, last month (Dec08), co-star Nixon announced, “We don’t know if it’s (sequel) coming up. We’re in negotiation. I’m very hopeful, but certainly nothing is for sure. I don’t think anyone’s deals are done.
“We were very excited to get to do the first one, and we’re keeping our fingers crossed that we get to do another one.”
Shooting is scheduled to start this summer (09).
