New Line Cinema’s Sex and the City 2 goes on floors in NYC

MUMBAI: The sequel of Sex and the City, which is being produced by New Line Cinema, has begun principle photography in New York City.

Returning in their starring roles as the four friends are Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon.

"It’s a great privilege to be spending time again with this beloved cast and crew and to be filming in New York City. We look forward to the next few months of this adventure," says Parker.

The movie also stars Chris Noth as Mr. Big, David Eigenberg as Steve, Evan Handler as Harry, Jason Lewis as Smith, Mario Cantone as Anthony and Willie Garson as Stanford Blatch.

Sex and the City 2 also reunites the original creative team from the series and the first feature. Michael Patrick King is once again directing from his own screenplay. King adds, "We are thrilled to have the luxury to continue to tell the story of these four iconic women characters: Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte and Samantha. We will do our best to entertain the loyal fans who were so supportive of the first movie."

King is also producing with John Melfi, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Darren Star. The executive producers are Toby Emmerich, Richard Brener and Marcus Viscidi.

Set to be released in theaters next Memorial Day weekend, Sex and the City 2 is the follow-up to the first film, which pulled in more than $415 million worldwide. The original film was inspired by the popular, award-winning HBO series based on the writings of Candace Bushnell.

The majority of filming will take place in and around the city of New York. Sex and the City 2 will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures.
