'Sex and the city' to take Hollywood route

MUMBAI: "It is the last season - but doesn't mean it's the last you'll see of us," Jessica Parker, producer of sitcom Sex and the City told Variety magazine on Wednesday. The celluloid affair of Sex and... may not be over just yet. Although the final episode of the show will air this Sunday in the US, series writer, director and executive producer Michael Patrick King is already at work on the screenplay for a Sex and the City feature film, which he expects to have ready by May 2004.

King, whose past credentials include Cybill and Murphy Brown, will be making his directorial feature debut with this film. No production date has been set, and no distributor is yet on board with the project, a spokeswoman told Variety.US network HBO is already in talks with the actors about the project to reprise their roles in the film.

Hollywood has always shown an affinity for movies based on hit TV shows, but this is the first time in recent memory, that a successful show has made the shift to the big screen immediately after its small screen run.

Indian fans though have time on their hands to start fretting over the finale of the show, which is currently airing its first season here on HBO. Sex and the City has won five Emmys, eight Golden Globes and two Screen Actors Guild Awards over the years. And if everthing is on schedule, Sex-aholics can safely expect their Manolo Blahnik-clad quartet to hit the screen by 2005.
