With the country currently in a financial crisis, the writer’s of the second Sex and the City movie are finding some challenges in keeping with the times.
“How do we do that well? And how do we do that in a not lazy way? How do we address these economic times in a franchise that has a lot to do with luxury and labels?” Parker tells Billy Bush for Access Hollywood and The Billy Bush Show.
“There is a lot that we have to think about because times are very different. So these are nice challenges, these are good challenges. I’m glad they’re not mine, they’re really Michael Patrick [King's], but we certainly have conversations about them.”
In the first film we had a lot of pain and heartbreak, Carrie getting left at the altar, Steve cheating on Miranda, and Samantha and Smith breaking up. SJP promises that this 2nd film is going to be a “romp.”
“I think we want this one to be a romp,” she says. “The last one, we got to tell a really mature sophisticated story that had real heartbreak in it, and this time, I think we want a romp. We want our audience to have a massive romp.”
If all goes as planned we can get a new Sex and the City film by Summer 2010!!
