Sex and the City Stars Commit to Sequel!


Sarah Jessica Parker, 43, Kim Cattrall, 52, Cynthia Nixon, 42, and Kristin Davis, 43, have agreed to appear in the sequel to Sex and the City: The Movie.

“Not all the contracts are signed, but everyone is on board,” a source tells Us. “It just happened.”

Another insider notes that all the leads are getting hefty raises this time around. (Cattrall reportedly held out from doing the first movie for years because of Parker’s higher paycheck.)

The news is hardly a shocker: The 2008 comedy grossed $150 million — immediately prompting follow-up talk.

In September, Parker told Us she wasn’t against the idea.

“It’s all about the story,” she said. “If we can’t tell a story that’s really worthy of an audience, then we won’t do it.

“We’ve been really lucky at this point,” she continued. “We’ve been in people’s good graces for a long time, and we take that very seriously. So that’s the biggest challenge, the story.”

Nixon told Us she has a few ideas for her character, feisty lawyer Miranda Hobbes.

“I would love to see her and Carrie and Charlotte and Samantha all go off on some wild mad cap adventure somewhere,” she said.

Warner Bros. couldn’t be reached for comment.

Kim Cattrall was disturbed by Samantha’s cancer storyline

Kim Cattrall

Kim Cattrall was worried when her character in the hit show was given a cancer storyline – because she feared writers were doling out a theoretical punishment.

The 51-year-old plays maneater Samantha Jones in the hit show and the character is famed for her rampant sexual appetite and her wild lifestyle.

And Cattrall feared that when the script saw Samantha suffering from breast cancer, it was the writers’ way of punishing her for her risque life choices.

She says, “I was nervous at first because it felt like some kind of punishment. Any woman who can do what she wants and say what she wants and sleep with who she wants in society is punished. From medieval times she was stoned or they cut her throat, ex-communicated or banished and branded her as a whore. There’s always been that throughout history, a woman must pay for that freedom.”

“I felt that giving this character cancer could have taken on this connotation and I was kind of upset — but the (writers) told me they were going to handle it in a unique way and script after script it just got better. And I was very grateful for that.”

Kim Cattrall was denied a role in a play over her age

Kim Cattrall

Kim Cattrall was turned down for a role in award-winning play Educating Rita because she was too old.

The 51-year-old was so desperate to land a part in the famous stage production – she personally contacted playwright Willy Russell to talk him into hiring her.

Cattrall was turned down over her age, with Russell insisting he would prefer a young actress in the title role.
But Cattrall is not bitter about the snub.

She says, “I contacted Willy Russell a few years ago because I wanted to do a version (of Educating Rita). The idea was to make it about a working-class woman in her 40s, a woman’s realization of herself and the different possibilities for her. But he said it had been written for an actress in her 20s, which I respected.”
