Sarah Jessica Parker spills “Sex” sequel secrets
BY SEAN O’CONNELL
While promoting a “Sex and the City 2” trailer at last week’s ShoWest convention, Sarah Jessica Parker spilled a few secrets about the Warner Bros. sequel, which is due in theaters May 27.
Minor spoilers abound, so if you want unspoiled “Sex,” turn away!
For starters, the ladies – which include Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon – will ditch Manhattan for the Middle East, which was hinted at in early trailers. They’ll visit Abu Dhabi, where Cattrall’s character, Samantha, visits her ex-boyfriend’s movie set.
And he’s not the only ex-boyfriend wandering around in the desert. Parker told the AP that her character, Carrie Bradshaw, bumps into her own ex-lover from the TV show, Aidan, played by John Corbett.
“This is probably the most time the characters have ever spent together,” Parker said in a ShoWest interview. “Simultaneously, it was the first time that the four actors left the country, lived together, worked together for almost eight weeks solid — and when I say lived together, I mean breakfast, lunch and dinner together every single night. We were removed from family and friends, and we’ve never had that kind of time together, because we always went home to friends and family and children and husbands and wives. It is the most fun and the hardest we’ve ever worked together.”
Back in New York, Carrie and Big (Chris Noth) will confront the next chapter in their up-and-down relationship … a baby. Michael Patrick King, who wrote and directed both movies, said that having children is “one of the thoughts of the movie” but would not commit wholeheartedly to the concept.
“For me, I always like to do something that’s individualistic and unique for Carrie Bradshaw, since she is one of a kind,” he said.
