From glitz to gloom Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis have all signed up to make the film sequel to Sex and the City, but one of its stars is fretting about how it will address the downturn.
Parker, who plays clothes-obsessed Carrie Bradshaw in the movie, says that the franchise has rather a lot to do with designer labels that many people simply can’t afford any more.
“There is a lot that we have to think about because times are very different,” she says, astutely.
The first film version of Sex and the City made £274 million worldwide so, happily, she doesn’t want to see the formula messed around with too much and certainly she doesn’t want it to be too downbeat. She senses that people are now in the mood for a “romp”.
The 43 year-old actress is said to be involved in negotiations to star in a Hollywood film opposite Hugh Grant, 48.
The as-yet-untitled film, to be directed by Marc Lawrence, who has written the screenplay, will involve the pair playing an estranged high-powered New York couple who witness a murder and are placed in a witness-protection programme in a small town in Wyoming.
It would be the third time that Grant has worked with Lawrence on a romantic comedy, after Music and Lyrics and Two Weeks Notice.
