"Sex And The City" Sequel Like, "Sopranos" Movie Maybe, Says HBO

Given the enormous box office success of "Sex and the City," talk of a sequel is not surprising. And on Thursday HBO confirmed that Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema are already at work on No. 2.

"There is enormous interest" by Warner Bros., Michael Lombardo, president of the HBO programming group, told reporters at the Television Critics Association press tour in Los Angeles. "And I think, in fact, they're trying, with our help, to put that together now. When that happens, how long between, can't say. But there's absolutely interest."

Mr. Lombardo said the producers and financiers were "really heartened" by the enthusiasm from fans.

A movie version of "The Sopranos" isn't as certain, but if series creator David Chase is interested, then HBO is too.
