Big fat pay cheque and the City.

Ok, I own all six seasons of “Sex and the City” and have probably watched then from beginning to end about four times, I loved this show so much. I can see how some people felt it was unrealistic, but it was a TV show, and it was supposed to be a fantasy. How people did not get that is beyond me.

The news that this is being made into a movie gives me pause. On the one hand I miss Miranda, Charlotte, Samantha and Carrie so much, but on the other hand I like where it was left off.

The idea of the feature film just sounds like a bad idea. Had they decided to do a seventh season, I would be on board, but a movie? Will it translate into a two hour running time?

I am not convinced this will work, even though Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon are all set to reprise their roles, with longtime exec producer Michael Patrick King directing a script he wrote.

I do find it interesting that Cattrall, who originally backed out of the movie because she wanted a big ole salary hike, has finally agreed on the basis of getting a huge salary and a series deal with HBO. What ever the series is going to be, nothing she does or did, will be as good as her Samantha (especially series six).
Full story is here.
