Longer 'Sex' Headed for Big Screen

"Sex and the City," HBO's Emmy-winning series which ends its run this Sunday after six seasons, is being turned into a feature-length movie that would star Sarah Jessica Parker and her pals, Variety reports.
Series writer, director and producer Michael Patrick King is reportedly working on a script for the film, while HBO is trying to secure deals for Parker and costars Cynthia Nixon, Kristin Davis and Kim Cattrall.
It would be the first feature film for King, who won an Emmy in 2002 for directing "The Real Me" episode. He is expected to finish writing the script by May.
Very little is known about the proposed project, and the cable network is still exploring its options for a start date and theatrical distributor, the trade paper reports. But the idea will no doubt help fill a void left by the ladies when they disappear from Sunday nights for good after numerous Emmy wins and countless conquests.
The show -- which was first created by Darren Star and adapted from a column Candace Bushnell originally wrote for the New York Observer -- barreled toward its conclusion on Sunday as Carrie Bradshaw (Parker) lived it up in Paris with her beau, Russian artist Aleksandr Petrovsky, while she still missed her friends in New York. The show also has set up a possible reunion with Mr. Big (Chris Noth) in the finale.
