Six months ago it was mere rumour. Now, it's unsubstantiated fact! The sequel to last year's Sex & The City movie will be filming in our fair city! Apparently Sarah Jessica Parker and friends will be descending on London to film key scenes for the sequel, which should be released sometime next year.
Chris Noth, who plays Carrie's husband Big, has been very vocal in his love of London and his desire to shoot here, and apparently the film's producers have listened. Of course, nothing has been confirmed by official SATC team, so it may all come to nothing.
For those of you who are desperately avoiding all potential spoilers about the film, the latest rumours are under the jump:
(Caution! If you don't want to read potential spoilers about the film, don't read any further!)
A source said: "The sequel will include key scenes of Carrie Bradshaw and her husband Big in London, possibly shooting this winter for six weeks.
"Big loses a lot of money and takes a job in London, living alone in a one-bedroom apartment without the five-star luxuries he is used to. Big gets really low and ends up in bed with another woman. He tells carry everything and she flies out to confront him. After she leaves him she discovers she is pregnant."
But, as this source can't spell Carrie's name correctly (or even capitalize "carry" to indicate that it is even a name), can they really be trusted? And does it even make sense that a newly poor Big would move to London to live in a tiny flat? London's pretty pricey. Maybe looking for logic in a Sex & The City film is being a little too ambitious. We'll just have to be satisfied with the sure to be realistic scenes of an impovrished Big living in a spacious one bedroom in Mayfair and taking black cabs everywhere.
