Sex & the City Film Ready To Go

New Line Cinema is close to sealing a final deal to finance and distribute the long-stalled film version of HBO television series “Sex and the City” reports the trades.

According to a spokesman for the studio, the film is getting ready for a Fall start of shooting, with all four actresses reprising their roles and Michael Patrick King directing a script he wrote.

Actress Kim Cattrall, who couldn’t come to a deal a few years ago when the film was originally planned, has secured one she’s happy with which is said to include some creative control, a large salary and a future series deal with HBO.

Talk that supporting cast members like Chris Noth (Mr. Big) would take part, but New Line has not set any such deals.
