It’s baaaack! Well it could be. And actually, it never really went anywhere.
The fabulous four ladies of Sex & the City might be strutting their Manolos back onto the silver screen according to social media hints from two of the stars, Sarah Jessica Parker (Carrie) and Kristin Davis (Charlotte). Add to that word from Jennifer Hudson — who played Carrie’s assistant from St. Louis in the first film — that there are “talks” happening and you’ve got a serious rumor situation going.
Turn on the TV at just about any time of day and you can catch an old episode of the HBO show on any number of channels. The program made its mark for all the great fashions, the frank discussions of topics a lot of women are interested in, and a portrayal of life in the Big Apple that’s just as quirky, stressful and romantic as any ever portrayed.
But the show is also, in many ways, dated. One of the major criticisms of the show and, later the movies, are that they convey a vision of Manhattan that doesn’t take into account things like the recession.
So if the movie does come back for a third go-round, it’s going to need a big refresh in order to capture the pop culture zeitgeist the way it did back in the 90s and early 2000s. Here are some suggestions for how Sex & the City 3 can refresh the brand.
