The Hobbit: Guillermo Del Toro’s exit from The Hobbit doesn’t necessarily mean an end for the prequels. Lord of the Rings’ Peter Jackson is now in talks to serve as both producer and director. It’s still hoped the two films can be released in 2012 and 2013.
Carrie Bradshaw’s Mac has become a staple of the character, as identifiable with Sex and the City as Manolo Blahniks. But all that’s going to change in the Sex sequel, where Carrie will become a PC. Hi, I’m astounded.
Carrie’s Mac became far more than a prop through the course of the six-season series. An entire episode (“My Motherboard, My Self”) was devoted to the device. It also played a large role in the two-part series finale, serving as a metaphor for Carrie’s true self. Now, all that’s being stripped away thanks to advertising agreements and (I suspect) studio interference.
Hewlett-Packard computers (and only HP computers) will be featured in the new movie. Sarah Jessica Parker will also be featured in upcoming ads for the computer company. Carrie Bradshaw would never sell herself out for some extra movie-making money - remember how she flat-out rejected the Season 5 book cover mock-up? The switch is one that will be noticed only by die-hard Sexers, but it’s a jolting difference all the same.

Believe it or not, Sarah Jessica Parker has 48 costume changes in Sex and the City 2.
The actress - who reprises her role as glamorous journalist Carrie Bradshaw in the movie sequel - admits she changed outfits so many times, more than 10 were lost to the cutting room floor.
“I think I have about 48. We started off with 60 and I think scenes were cut and scenes didn’t make it. So I think between scenes being cut prior to shooting and us not being able to find a good enough reason to change clothes on camera, which is what I would do if they would let me, I think we end up in high 40s.”
While Carrie Bradshaw has been to Paris and the girls have traveled to Mexico, new photos taken of Sarah Jessica Parker and Cynthia Nixon reveal that the Sex and the City sequel calls for a story involving Morocco.
In the photo, Parker wears a classic “J’adore Dior” t-shirt matched with an envious color-block skirt and pink snake skin sandals. Nixon (seen after the jump) looks heavenly in an all-white outfit, comprised of a blazer and floor-length skirt.

Carrie Bradshaw and Tim Gunn - now there’s a pair that’s always in fashion.
The latest rumors coming from the set of the Sex and the City sequel say that Project Runway’s front man will be making a cameo in the flick.
No hints on why Gunn will be doing the movie, but he’ll be playing himself. Sarah Jessica Parker is no stranger to Runway or Gunn - she was a guest judge on the show in 2007.
Fashion has always been a major component to Sex and the City, so this Tim Gunn item seems to be a perfect fit.

New photos from the set of Sex and the City 2 show Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie Bradshaw sporting ‘80s fashion and a poofed-out ‘do. Rumor has it the scenes are flashbacks to the days before Big, but it could very well just be another Bradshaw-esque fashion salute to born-again trends.
Of course, SJP is no stranger to filming in ‘80s fashion. The actress’s first stint on TV was on a series named Square Pegs, a role she almost didn’t get because she was thought to be too pretty to play Patty Greene.

Sarah Jessica Parker has begun filming her scenes for Sex and the City 2, the sequel to last summer’s blockbuster hit. New photos of Parker as Carrie Bradshaw are being circulated on the Internet, and she looks as fabulous as ever.
Those in the know are keeping mum on plot details at this point, but one thing’s for sure: great fashion is still the star of the show.

“We need to figure this out in the next couple of months,” Sarah Jessica Parker recently told MTV News, discussing a possible timetable for the next Sex and the City movie. The actress hopes to start shooting the film next summer, saying “that’s when we’d start shooting to be out in 2010.”
“We’ve had very general conversations about the idea,” she said, saying “that’s the big hurdle: the idea.” But, apparently (and despite rumors), motherhood for Carrie isn’t on the agenda.

During an appearance on the British-based Paul O’Grady Show, Kim Cattrall announced the news that is even now setting women into a frenzy: “Yes there will!” Cattrall cried when ask if there will be a sequel to the summer’s mega-popular Sex and the City movie.
According to New Line Cinema, negotiation are still ongoing for a sequel. Years ago, when the series first ended, rumor states it was Cattrall herself who stymied progress on a movie plan. She backed out; they ditched the idea until it re-surfaced in 2008.

I think you could probably file this under the “No Duh” category. During the Television Critics Association press tour yesterday, HBO’s programming head told everyone what they already knew: There’s talk about a Sex and the City sequel out there.
According to Michael Lombardo, “There’s enormous interest by Warner Bros. and New Line, and we’re trying to put that together now. Everyone associated with the project was liberated by the enthusiasm of the fans.”
But fans should, of course, not anticipate forming another group outing anytime soon. There’s still quite a few matters that need to be settled first - like a script, signed contracts…and how about possibly a reason? Is there a point where we should just let these girls walk off in their stilettos quietly? What could possibly happen to Carrie and Big next time? Will he decide that he likes Napa better than New York City?
