Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema are set to bring Carrie Bradshaw and friends back in the big screen when the sequel to box office hit 'Sex and the City' hits theaters in summer 2010.
"Sex and the City 2" has locked down a U.S. theatrical release date. With Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon signing up for the project, Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema set the sequel to 2008 dramedy "Sex and the City" in the May 28, 2010 slot.
The end of May date places the sequel in the same slot the first big screen adaptation of HBO series "Sex and the City" opened in 2008. Over the May 28-30 weekend, it is listed to be in competition with Jake Gyllenhaal and Gemma Arterton-starring action fantasy "Prince of Persia: Sands of Time".
Aside from the fact that all four of the original actresses have agreed to reprise their roles in the sequel, "Sex and the City 2" will have director/writer Michael Patrick King once again taking the responsibility behind the camera. However, many details circulating around the sequel's story still remain unconfirmed.
Previously, it has been reported that the film's star Sarah Jessica Parker has dished out the possibility of Carrie dealing with motherhood in the sequel. The actress said at the time, "[Motherhood] doesn't seem as if that's going to be a choice she'll make. It feels a little bit manipulative to toss that into the mix because she seems so pointed in a different direction."
