Sex and the City writer talks sequel
Previously on Filmstalker I wrote about HBO's West Coast President Michael Lombardo previously said that there was enormous interest in doing a Sex and the City sequel. Now the writer/director Michael Patrick King is talking about it as well, and he sounds like he's very keen.
In fact he reveals that suddenly the story doesn't feel like it's completed, and that's not a surprise considering the box office takings. He even seems to have some ideas for the sequel.
Sex and the City did hugely well, amazingly so since it pretty much decided to cover similar ground, but not really surprisingly since there's such a huge fan base for the series.
"When I finished [the first one], I didn’t have a thought in my head about a sequel...It doesn’t feel done to me at all. It feels like it generated a whole new burst of enthusiasm for these characters. I thought if I could come up with a really fun, worthy story it would certainly be a great chance to do it again."
Then he goes on to say that if he tipped his head over then the ideas would come pouring out. He even does a little revealing of what could be, and perhaps a release date, even though negotations are still ongoing:
"It’s always nice to see the girls in the summer."
So it looks as though we're going to have a second Sex and the City film, whether we like it or not, and I suspect the majority will like it, whatever the story throws at us, perhaps more of the same.
