Report: Sex confirmed for 'plex

After months of back-and-forth courtship, it finally looks as though Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda will finally be getting it on in movie theaters.

HBO's popular injection of estrogen Sex and the City will be headed to the Cineplex, reports Variety. The television show, which bowed out in 2004, will be brought to the big screen by New Line Cinema.

All four of the show's stars, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis, are signed on to reprise their roles as the men-swapping New York sexual socialites. Sex executive producer Michael Patrick King will handle both writing and directing duties.

A movie based on the show has been rumored for years now, with Parker recently confirming that those behind the dramedy were still pushing a big-screen adaptation. Variety says Cattrall was at the center of the delay, with disagreements on salary and creative control. However, a new deal gives her "a fat salary," input on her scenes, and a deal for a future series on HBO.

Sex and the City premiered in 1998 and ran for six seasons. For more information on the show, read TV.com's previous coverage.

We now know that there is a wedding for John and Carrie. I want to know why it took Mr Big more than three years to marry Carrie after his declarations of love in the final episode. I cannot wait to find out. I also want to know what's been happening with Charlotte and Harry and their Chinese baby girl, Miranda and Steve and Samantha and Smith.

Wow, I guess a Sopranos movie is pretty much a done deal.

Don't know if I'll watch it, the finale of Sex and the City was a great one and ended the series perfectly, there are hundred other series who deserve a finishing movie sooo much more.
