Want to film at locations in New York where nobody else gets permission to film? Want to have an Oscar-winning actress be your personal assistant? Want to wear a ton of Tiffany every day? Well, maybe you can’t, but Carrie Bradshaw can.
Spoiler Alert — If you don’t want the latest on the movie, Sex and the City, quit reading right now. But if you don’t give a damn and curiosity wins out over psychic discipline, carry on. You’ve been warned.
Permission to film in places like the New York Public Library, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and Vogue Magazine, was granted for the first time by the Mayor’s Office of Film, Theatre and Broadcasting. Perhaps permission was given because Mayor Bloomberg is in the movie. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) and Big (Chris Noth) are engaged, Samantha (Kim Cattrall) now lives in an L.A. beach house, Charlotte (Kristin Davis) is pregnant by Harry (Evan Handler, and Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) and Steve (David Eigenberg) are faced with a problem of infidelity. All this in Sunday’s New York Post exclusive, that is, until FSR got hold of it.
Jennifer Hudson plays Louise, Carrie’s personal assistant, who came to New York on a quest for love. But even Louise cannot keep Carrie from her cynical attitude about the coming wedding to Big. Her wedding gown is “the perfect thing to be jilted in,” comments Carrie. She hopes her marriage to Big will be different from her past “disastrous marital attempts.”
Samantha’s new L.A. neighbor is a sexy young stud who steals her attention from Smith (Jason Lewis) whose career isn’t going too well. Samantha tries to resist the neighbor and tells Carrie he’s out there all the time switching sex partners. The tables have been turned on Samantha.
“You can’t bring back ‘I Love Lucy’ because they’re all dead,” says the Post’s source insider, “So it [Sex and the City movie] just became ‘Are we going to do this? If we’re going to do it, let’s just do it.”
According to the Post, the movie has both juicy scenes and a massive budget, which brings smiles to the face of writer/producer/director Michael Patrick King. Big bling, high fashion, great locations, and no shortage of Cosmopolitans.
And now, a few semi-new “glam” shots from the set of Sex and the City: The Movie, due out May 30th.
