Sept. 21, 2008 -- New York — Where to celebrate the launch of the "Sex and the City: The Movie" DVD?
Why, the same place where, in the film, Carrie Bradshaw gets stood up at the altar. Thursday night, the film's stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall and Cynthia Nixon reconvened at the New York Public Library, which was lit up in pink and decorated with a custom-made interlocking-C white Chanel couch.
A radiant and friendly Parker, in Alexander McQueen, said she was ecstatic that her film was one of the year's blockbusters. "I was surprised and thrilled and gratified and shocked," said Parker. "I think we felt very honored that people connected to the story."
Said Cattrall: "This has been an amazing year. It's poignant that the year after we started shooting, the DVD is coming out. It just seems to get better."
And now, word is, there's a sequel in the works.
"I guess there's been a lot of talk except that Michael Patrick and I haven't spoken," said Parker, referring to the film's writer and director Michael Patrick King. "We're going to have a conversation sooner rather than later. If Michael feels there's a story worthy of an audience leaving their home and plunking down a significant amount of money for a ticket, then I assume we'll move forward. We feel very indebted to this audience and it would be a disservice to them to make a movie because we can."
If a second installment of Sex comes to fruition, Parker wants it to "be thoughtful and something that has some meaning -- (we want) to tell a good story and produce it well."
Cattrall too hopes it happens. "The deal is they're making the deal and Michael Patrick King is writing the script. I don't envy him that task. I'm very excited because Samantha is single and that's real fun to play," she said.
