Silly us. We expected Sex and the City 2 would be a rom-com that followed closely in the footsteps of the first movie. But then the freaky poster of the gals was released, followed by the even more scarily Photoshopped cover of Entertainment Weekly. With the stars looking even younger than they did in the HBO series, the movie has veered into sci-fi territory. Seriously, Battlefield Earth required less suspension of disbelief. Don't believe us?

"It was the book that killed him." Or so Ewan McGregor is told early on in the latest trailer for Roman Polanski's political thriller The Ghost Writer. McGregor plays the unnamed replacement "ghost," as he puts it, who has been hired to help a retired British Prime Minister (Pierce Brosnan) write his memoirs after the first ghost writer dies under mysterious circumstances.
Indeed, from what we can see here, words are what gets everyone into trouble. The memoirs the former PM is writing appear to contain secrets that could destroy him, secrets also likely linked to the untimely death of the first ghost. McGregor too, who starts off professing to know nothing about politics, soon finds that being a ghost is far more complicit than he realizes. As the secrets threaten to spill out to the public, an aide (Kim Cattrall) blandly informs him: "You're the writer. That makes you an accomplice." Posted 01.29.10 by reelz
Ever since his arrest last month, Roman Polanski has been locked away in a Swiss jail awaiting his fate. But that hasn't stopped him from working. Aceshowbiz reports that he is continuing work on his latest movie, an adaptation of the Robert Harris novel The Ghost, while incarcerated.
Harris spoke with the press and said that Polanski was supplying instructions to composer Alexandre Desplat regarding the score. He also said Polanski is trying to have the movie completed in time for the Berlin Film Festival in February.
He can make his wishes known from his cell. I don't think he can make phone calls, but he can communicate ... It is a nightmare looming that the director might be in jail at the time [of the film's release] but we will just have to cope with this as the situation develops ... I'm sure he would want the film to go ahead, having worked on it for two years.
The Ghost tells the story of a ghostwriter who is hired to complete the memoirs of a former British prime minister and eventually uncovers secrets that put his life at risk. Polanski has a writing credit alongside Harris'. No date has been specified for a US release.
The cast includes Pierce Brosnan, Ewan McGregor, Olivia Williams, Kim Cattrall, Tom Wilkinson, Jim Belushi, and Timothy Hutton. Posted 10.15.09 by reelz
Oh thank God. Offscreen, we may be facing the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression, but onscreen there will be stylish shoes and bags! All four ladies -- Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis -- have signed on for a Sex and the City sequel, along with writer-director-producer Michael Patrick King. Though there's no script yet, and no start date for shooting has been set, New Line is hoping to crank out the film in time for a summer 2010 release. No worries. As long as there are the right handbags on set, the ladies can probably just improvise each scene. Posted 02.06.09 by reelz
Okay, so it won't really be called that (at least we hope not), but it has been confirmed that a Sex and the City sequel is officially moving forward. "Yes, there will be a sequel," SatC star Kim Cattrall informed U.K. TV host Melanie Brown (formerly known as Mel B. of the Spice Girls) yesterday. "We will do the sequel next summer."
Cattrall added -- presumably with a straight face -- that it took a while for the first movie to get started because it was "difficult getting everybody who's so incredibly busy all together at the same time." Busy doing what? Turning down all of those Oscar-worthy roles they weren't offered? The truth, we all know, had much more to do with money.
Guys, you might want to start getting prepared now. Posted 11.06.08 by reelz
As we reported months ago, it looks like THE SEX AND THE CITY MOVIE IS REALLY GOING TO HAPPEN!!
According to Variety.com, New Line and HBO are partnering to finally bring Sex and the City to movie theaters. All four leading ladies (Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis, and Cynthia Nixon - for those of you living under rocks) are on board.
Integral S&TC series writer and producer Michael Patrick King will write and direct. It's like music to my ears.
Talk of a S&TC movie has circulated since the beloved series ended in 2004, but negotiations have previously failed because Cattrall was unable to reach a satisfactory deal (wanted script control and a salary on par with SJP's).
Whether or not other series regulars, such as Christopher Noth (Mr. Big), will also reprise their roles is yet to be determined. Rest assured that we will keep you posted. Posted 07.05.07 by reelz
Is it possible? Can it be?
Gossip blogger extraodinare Perez Hilton is reporting that the beloved HBO series Sex and the City is finally going to make it to the silver screen.
There was much buzz over the notion of a Sex and the City movie when the show ended in 2004, but possibly thanks to a much-speculated-upon rift between Kim Cattrall and other cast members, nothing ever came to fruition.
Can those differences have been worked out? Perez usually has reliable dish, so let's hope he's right this time.
And now if you'll excuse me, I must go home and get my dog, Mr. Big, ready for the premiere. Posted 03.30.07 by reelz
