Sex and the City returns to TV screens
Fans of Sex and the City who hated the last film as a cinematic abomination will be relieved to hear that the show's bosses are determined to revive the TV series, and put film-making on the back burner. According to sources, Sarah Jessica Parker et al were upset by the critical bashing that SaTC 2 received, but are still keen to keep the hugely successful New York show going. After all, they'd be commercial fools not to keep the wheels on the money-making franchise turning.
An LA insider told The Daily Mail, 'Ultimately Darren Star – the man who created the hit series – will have the overall say, but everyone is agreed a TV show is the direction they want to take the franchise in. Sarah Jessica Parker will be producing. She was worried about doing another film after the bad reaction to the SATC2 movie, but a TV show is definitely something she wants to happen. But they want to make the TV series before doing another film.'
Previously, rumours had swirled around the possibility of a SaTC prequel featuring the famous four as teenagers. In terms of casting for the film of the young Louboutin aficionados, Elizabeth Olsen was talked up to play Carrie, Blake Lively, Samantha, Selena Gomez Charlotte and Emma Roberts, Miranda. These plans have seemingly now been shelved. Filming for the TV show should begin early next year, and should hit out screens at the end of 2012.
