"Sex And The City: The Movie" Sequel Plans Confirmed

Buried in FoxNews 411 today is news straight from the horse's mouth that a plan for a "Sex and the City: The Movie" sequel is movie ahead.

Michael Patrick King thought there would be sequels to "Sex and the City: the Movie."

Thursday night at the Public Library party for the DVD of the film, he and Sarah Jessica Parker confirmed it. He's off to write the next installment. Both SJP and Kim Cattrall told me they're excited to see what he comes up with.

At the same time, Candace Bushnell announced that she's writing a "prequel" to the ladies' lives, taking them maybe from teen through college years to the time they all met.

King told me, quipping, "I'm thinking of doing an animated version of them as babies."

SJP added, "Let's wring everything we can out of this thing!"

It didn't hurt that she was dressed and styled like a modern Audrey Hepburn, and that she worked the pink carpet full of media outside the Library like a pro. There just is not a more gracious movie or TV star around.

Meanwhile, Us reports from the party:

Sarah Jessica Parker tells Usmagazine.com that she and writer Michael Patrick King will "have that conversation sooner rather than later."

At Thursday's DVD party in NYC, she said, "It's all about the story. If we can't tell a story that's really worthy of an audience, then we won't do it.

"We've been really lucky at this point," she continued. "We've been in people's good graces for a long time, and we take that very seriously. So that's the biggest challenge, the story."

Cynthia Nixon told Us she has a few ideas for her character, feisty lawyer Miranda Hobbes.

"I would love to see her and Carrie and Charlotte and Samantha all go off on some wild mad cap adventure somewhere," she said.
