Good news for Sex and the City fans! Carrie Bradshaw and friends have a summer date – a summer release date. Warner Bros and its subsidiary, New Line, have confirmed that the sequel to the blockbuster film will hit movie theaters on May 28, 2010.
That will be two years and two days after the first flick debuted in theaters and became a huge hit. It made more than $152 million at the American box office and another $260 million internationally.
The second installment will be going head to head with Jake Gyllenhaal's Prince of Persia, which is scheduled for release on the same day. According to Variety, all four stars of the HBO series that spawned the film – Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis, Kim Cattrall and Cynthia Nixon – are committed to the sequel. Writer-director Michael Patrick King will also be back. He is currently working on the film's script. There is still no date set for the start of production.
Also very few plot details have been revealed about the Sex and the City sequel movie, although Parker has let slip that she feels it should be more of a romp. But it will also reflect the current economic climate. “There is a lot that we have to think about because times are very different. So these are nice challenges, these are good challenges,” she said.
