I almost wet my pants on Monday. It could have been from running for the bus in my Manolos (ok, ok, George of Asda), but more likely, it was from sheer excitement over finally owning my very own pink copy of Sex and the City: The Movie! Because, for me, it’s up there with The Devil Wears Prada, both fabulous fashion extravaganzas that are easy on the eye and easy on the mind. Great for a Saturday night in with the girls.
So imagine my excitement when I heard that Sarah Jessica Parker is up for doing a sequel and will be meeting with screenwriter Michael Patrick King to discuss ideas!
What would be your dream SATC storyline?
Well timed with the movie’s DVD release, Candace Bushnell announced this week that she’s planning two novels based on Carrie Bradshaw’s high school years. She said she could see Disney’s Miley ‘Hannah Montana’ Cyrus playing Carrie…
Please Candace, spare us the trauma! Besides, wouldn’t people much rather hear about what Samantha got up to in her teens?
Well, let’s not worry about it for now. The Carrie Diaries haven’t even been published yet (planned for 2010), let alone made into a film. While you wait, I suggest you go back to the beginning and read Bushnell’s brilliant original Sex and The City newspaper columns that became the funny book, that inspired the sassy TV series…well, you know the rest.
Let’s finish off this week with a tune. The theme song for the new Bond movie, Quantum of Solace, got played on various British radio stations earlier in the week and has been slated ever since. What do you think?
Alicia Keys and White Stripes front man Jack White duet the song Another Way To Die to a violent drone of brass instruments – not quite my cup of tea. But I reckon it’s a great time to be a proficient tuba player, what with the success of LOST (they lurve a bit of brass) and this movie.
