Kim Cattrall, the actress widely known for her role as Samantha Jones in 'Sex and the City', has let slip in a recent interview that sequel to the movie version of the HBO series is on the horizon.
After months of uncertainty hanging over "Sex and the City" sequel, a ray of light comes from one of the hit movie's stars, Kim Cattrall. During her appearance on Britain's "The Paul O'Grady Show", the 52-year-old exclaimed to guest-host Spice Girls' Melanie Brown that the sequel is indeed in the pipeline, stating, "Yes there will!"
According to the BBC, the Golden Globe Award-winner even went further by revealing when the production may possibly start. "We will do the sequel next summer," she gushed. "We wanted to the first time, and now we're hopefully doing it again for the second time." Despite her excitement over the sequel, Cattrall pointed out that it was "difficult getting everybody who's so incredibly busy all together at the same time."
Backing up Cattrall's confirmation on the sequel, many reported that a spokesperson for New Line Cinema has claimed that the studio is "in negotiations for a sequel." Still, giving an equal balance to this exciting news, the series star and co-producer, Sarah Jessica Parker, stated that things aren't a done deal yet. To Access Hollywood, Parker said, "I'm thrilled to know Kim is excited but all the deals are not yet done. With 'the wind on our heels,' we hope to make it a reality."
Back on May 30, about four years after HBO's original series "Sex and the City" aired its series finale, the big screen version of the romantic comedy adaptation to Candace Bushnell's novel has blown out in the theaters and got overwhelming responses. Following the new adventure faced by Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda, it debuted with $57 million over the first weekend marking it to be the biggest opening ever for a romantic comedy. It has since pulled in $413.4 million worldwide.
