Sex and the City Gets a Sequel
At the end of last week, New Line Cinema made it official: a sequel to Sex and the City is on the way. Although no script has been developed yet, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis have all signed on for the film, and Michael Patrick King is back to write and direct.
The sequel is further confirmation that studios are really starting to bank on the box office power of women audiences, yet I know many people have mixed feelings about the success of the first film. Ready yourself now for a fairly endless amount of speculation and would-be spoilers as the film moves closer to shooting, but in the meantime, I'd like to hear your take on it...
Feminist response to the first Sex and the City film ranged from escapist pleasure to guilty enjoyment to searing hatred. I have a hard time thinking of any film that inspired the same range of response and emotions among women over the past few years. So now that Sex and the City 2 is a done deal, let's talk about it.
What are your hopes for the sequel? And what impact do you think it will have on films made for and about women?
