Before we even get a whiff of Bradshaw on the big screen, the producers of Sex and the City: The Movie are already making plans for her return. According to Digital Spy, the makers of the HBO show’s big screen counterpart have seen the cash cow at the end of the rainbow and are thinking of making a sequel, before the original has even premiered! A source has told the Daily Mail (a UK paper):
“The producers are already working on a script for a second movie, they are so convinced the first will be a hit… They are exercising the sequel option in all of the stars’ contracts. They want it to be a franchise and think they can stretch it over at least three movies.”
I’m a huge fan of the original series, and I’m looking forward to seeing the movie itself, but this move seems a bit disappointing to me. Sex and the City was a great show, but it worked best in small doses, and towards the end of the show the plot dragged a good deal. One thing a movie has in its favour is the shorter running time, 100 mins to tell an entire story instead of 18 25 minute episodes, but whether the characters have a trilogy’s worth of stories remains to be seen.
Sex & the City: The Movie has yet to hit our screens, but you can catch a trailer for it here.
