The sequel began filming in New York City in September and several pictures of the cast were released, including a glimpse of Samantha, played by Kim Cattrall, in a wedding dress. While other details remain scant, it has been confirmed that all the main characters will return, including Smith, Samantha’s ex-boyfriend. Several big names have also been cast, including Liza Minnelli and Miley Cyrus, who will both play themselves. Penelope Cruz has been cast as Lydia, though what role Lydia will play is not known.
Happily, the drama-filled intensity of the first movie will not see a repeat. Sarah Jessica Parker recently spoke to Glamour magazine and hinted at the theme, saying, “The first movie had a lot of sadness in it, and it was very brave about breaking the rules of romantic comedy. This one is very much the antidote for that: It’s a romp. It’s about the idea of women’s and men’s roles in marriage, and old traditions versus new ones. The story is really fun, but it’s also about something.”
