The long-awaited Sex and the City TV movie has been greenlit and will start shooting this fall.
Actress Kim Cattrall, who stalled and then axed plans to make the project in 2005 over salary issues, has reportedly agreed to make the one-off telefilm, which follows the four leading lady characters from the hit TV series. Her new deal includes a better salary and a future series deal with the TV channel HBO, according to trade magazine Daily Variety. HBO aired the original Sex and the City series and the cable channel will also back the movie.
The Sex and the City film will be directed by the series' longtime director Michael Patrick King, based on a new script he wrote.The project will reunite the TV show's stars, Cattrall, Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis. There are no other casting details available.
Sex and the City was a ratings winner and critical success during its TV run between 1998 and 2004, when the last episode aired.
