There was some dispute over whether the Sex and the City movie released last May was any good or not, but no one can deny that it surpassed box-office expectations--$152 million domestically wowed studios. That kind of coin obviously means a sequel is in the works--and that was confirmed today.
Actress Kim Cattrall has confirmed the film version of Sex and The City is still going ahead. Cattrall, who played sensualist Samantha Jones on the racy HBO series, told Star magazine that the film version will occur despite rumors to the contrary.
"I've just come home, and there was just this flood of excitement," the actress said. "I'm just so glad we haven't been missed or forgotten!"
Sex and The City ran for six seasons on HBO, and along with The Sopranos helped establish the cable channel as a major player in original content programming. The film version reportedly languished because of backstage bickering between Cattrall and the other actresses, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis, and Cynthia Nixon.
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.

A new poll says the despite the brouhaha, most Americans don't want the Feds to control their TV.
The media group Television Watch, a coalition of individuals and organizations that oppose government control of TV and promote tools such as parental education instead, conducted the nationwide survey with Reed Research between March 24 to 26.

For the legions of Sex in the City fans out there, the last few years have been tough. The HBO hit ended after six seasons in 2004, leaving its diehard Cosmopolitan-sipping viewers with no new avenue to get relationship advice or fashion sense.
