You can’t make everyone happy, but you sure can make money trying ($135 million, to be exact). Michael Patrick King must have learned that lesson somewhere along the way of working on Sex and the City: The Movie. Of course some fans will find fault in Big’s predictable commitment-phobia or in Samantha’s new singleness post-Smith, but the characters themselves are so lovable that it doesn’t really matter — we’ll keep paying to see them go through their trials, even at $10 a ticket.
King, the lead writer and director of Sex and the City, told Entertainment Weekly that a summer sequel is on the way.
When I finished [the first one], I didn’t have a thought in my head about a sequel. It doesn’t feel done to me at all. It feels like it generated a whole new burst of enthusiasm for these characters. I thought if I could come up with a really fun, worthy story it would certainly be a great chance to do it again.
There’s no argument here. As a fan of the show (and Cynthia Nixon‘s involvement), I know I’ll be shelling out cash to see what happens to the girls. Will you?
