Marisa Tomei and Sarah Jessica Parker may join the indie comedy Married and Cheating. Written and directed by Raymond De Felitta (City Island), the film is set in New York and Paris and “concerns three married couples struggling to find happiness.” Groundswell and Lauren Versel of Lucky Monkey Pictures are producing. A spokesperson for Groundswell tells Variety that no deals are done because the project is still gathering financing.
Parker is attached to the comedies I Don’t Know How She Does It and the Valentine’s Day pseudo-sequel New Year’s Eve. As for Tomei, she’ll be constant presence in theaters throughout 2011. On Friday she’ll be seen in The Lincoln Lawyer, she co-stars in the upcoming comedies Salvation Boulevard and Crazy, Stupid, Love, and she’s currently filming on George Clooney’s political drama The Ides of March, which is due out October 14th.

Josh Duhamel (Transformers: Dark of the Moon) has been added to the mega-ensemble cast that makes up director Garry Marshall’s forthcoming rom-com New Year’s Eve. News of Duhamel’s casting came last night, courtesy of TheWrap, although no details were divulged about his role. Considering the sheer number of actors already present in the film, it’s possible that Duhamel is just an extra and that literally every person in front of Marshall’s camera at any given moment will be a name actor of some caliber. It’s not likely, but the other possibility is that the film will be a ten-hour epic only matched in scale by Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy. I’ll let you decide which you think is more plausible.
To date, the New Year’s Eve cast includes Robert De Niro, Ashton Kutcher, Halle Berry, Jessical Biel, Michelle Pfeiffer, Sarah Jessica Parker, Hilary Swank, Zac Efron, Sienna Miller, Lea Michelle, Sofia Vergara, Abigail Breslin, Germany’s own Til Schweiger, Seth Meyes, Jon Bon Jovi, and…Josh Duhamel. The film opens later this year on December 9th.
Greg Kinnear and Jane Curtin are the latest additions to the adaptation of Allison Pearson’s novel I Don’t Know How She Does It. The current cast includes Sarah Jessica Parker, Pierce Bronsnan and Kelsey Grammar, as well as recent additions Christina Hendricks (Mad Men), Olivia Munn (The Daily Show), and Seth Meyers (SNL). Douglas McGrath (Infamous) directs from a script by Aline Brosh McKenna (The Devil Wears Prada).
I Don’t Know How She Does It tells the story of a working mom (Parker) trying to balance the many competing elements of her life. Variety reports that Kinnear will play Parker’s husband, while Curtin will take on the role of Kinnear’s mother. The Weinstein Company will produce. Hit the jump for a synopsis of Pearson’s novel.

Sienna Miller has joined the ensemble romantic comedy New Year’s Eve. According to The Playlist, the actress has agreed to join a ludicrously star-studded cast that features (take a deep breath): Robert De Niro, Jake Gyllenhaal, Ashton Kutcher, Jessica Biel, Halle Berry, Zac Efron, Sarah Jessica Parker, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Hilary Swank, just to name a few.
New Year’s Eve is being directed by Garry Marshall, who also helmed the strikingly similar Valentine’s Day only a year ago. Katherine Fugate also returns to pen the film which isn’t so much a sequel as it is a perfectly-timed box office jackpot. As for Miller, details of her role are currently unknown. Given the star power she is surrounded with, here’s to hoping she can get a word in edgewise. New Year’s Eve is scheduled to begin shooting in New York in the near future and will hit theaters later this year on December 9th.
Christina Hendricks (Mad Men), Olivia Munn (Attack of the Show) and Seth Meyers (Saturday Night Live) are in talks to join Sarah Jessica Parker, Pierce Brosnan, and Kelsey Grammer in I Don’t Know How She Does It. The film adapts Allison Pearson’s comic novel about “a high-powered finance type (Parker) who’s also the mother of two young children and trying to balance the many competing elements in her life.” According to 24 Frames, Hendricks and Munn will play a friend and colleague, respectively, to Parker
Doug McGrath (Infamous) will direct I Don’t Know How She Does It. The Weinstein Co. production begins filming in January. Hit the jump for a synopsis of Pearson’s novel.

As the list of actors continues to pile up on Garry Marshall’s New Year’s Eve, one has to wonder if everyone involved will have little more than brief cameos. But who would do such a thing as place the likes of Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer and Jessica Biel together in a film and then give them little more than 10 to 15 minutes of screen time? Probably the same guy who directed Valentine’s Day.
THR reports the already very large ensemble — which includes Hilary Swank, Sofia Vergara, Lea Mitchele, Ashton Kutcher, Taylor Swift and Abigail Breslin — will have to make room for three more. Namely Sarah Jessica Parker, recent Golden Globe nominee Halle Berry and Zac Efron. The cast has yet to commit to the film, but negotiations are underway with everyone involved. (“So Mr. De Niro, who would you like to play?” “I’ll take the 12-minute role for $10 million.” “Done.”) New Year’s Eve is set for release December 9, 2011.
Expectations were high for the Sex and the City sequel we all knew was inevitable after the first movie’s opening weekend. With hundreds of women lined up hours in advance, decked out in heels and sipping Cosmos, how could Warner Brothers not cash in on the sequel?
And cash in they did producing a full-length feature film, complete with glittery gowns, muscular men and the quartet of friends taking a decadent vacation overseas. Collider caught up with the cast, appropriately enough, in the shoe department of Bergdorf-Goodman to dish on the details of the fun, the friends, and, of course, the fashion. To hear what Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis, Cynthia Nixon, Kim Cattrall, Chris Noth and writer-director Michael Patrick King had to say, continue reading after the jump:
Warner Bros. has released 9 movie clips from writer-director Michael Patrick King’s Sex and the City 2. While SATC2 isn’t going to appeal to a huge percentage of our audience, for some, it’s one of the biggest movies of the year and on the same level as an Iron Man 2 or Inception. So if you’d a taste of the new adventures of Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), Samantha (Kim Cattrall), Charlotte (Kristin Davis) and Miranda (Cynthia Nixon), hit the jump:
Warner Bros. has released the full press kit for Sex and the City 2 and it features a ton of new images. While not everyone’s cup of tea, I know a number of people who think SATC2 is the biggest movie of the year. I’m talking about my mom and my sister.
Anyway, if you’re awaiting the new adventures of Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), Samantha (Kim Cattrall), Charlotte (Kristin Davis) and Miranda (Cynthia Nixon), you can hit the jump for 39 high-res images. Also, WB has released the press notes for the movie, which features interviews with the entire cast and filmmakers, as well as what the movie is about and what went on behind the scenes. While meant for the press who will be writing stories about SATC2, if you’re a big fan, you’ll probably love reading the notes. Sex and the City 2 gets released May 27.
New Line has released a new poster and an updated synopsis for writer/director Michael Patrick King’s Sex and the City 2. Starring Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis, and Cynthia Nixon, the movie opens May 27 and some theaters have already begun selling tickets. The first movie did huge box office, and I’m 100% sure the sequel will be another massive hit. After the jump is the updated synopsis and the new poster. If you missed my ShoWest interview with Michael Patrick King, click here. If you want to know what the movie is about and why, it’s very informative.
Warner Bros. has released the first real trailer for Sex and the City 2. Starring Cynthia Nixon, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis, and Sarah Jessica Parker, Sex and the City 2 takes the girls out of New York City and on an adventure to Abu Dhabi.
While WB has been very protective of the storyline for the sequel, this trailer will answer a lot of your questions. Hit the jump to check it out.
While everyone knows the sequel to Sex and the City is getting released May 27, Warner Bros. has kept the plot under wraps and fans of the show are getting restless. Thankfully, just a few days ago I got to speak with writer/director Michael Patrick King at ShoWest as a reporter for our partners at Omelete and he spilled a lot of the secrets to Sex and the City 2. So if you want to know what happens to Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon, you’re in the right place. Here’s some of the highlights:
- The girls go to Abu Dhabi.
- He tells a great story as to how he came up with the story for the sequel and it involves the fans.
- They filmed in Africa as the Middle East wasn’t ready for the girls.
- He points out very few movies actually show what happens after happily ever after.
- He brings back Carrie’s ex. He says he always asks people Mr. Big or Aidan…and they’re both in the movie as Aidan is where the girls go on vacation.
- We will still see lots of fashion and style even with the economic downturn.
- Liza Minnelli plays herself but Penelope Cruz and Miley Cyrus don’t.
Trust me, there is so much more in the interview. For the full transcript and the audio of the interview, hit the jump. If you’re a fan of Sex and the City, I promise you’ll love it.
Of all the women in my life who watched the Sex and the City TV show, only one enjoyed the 2008 movie while everyone else had mixed to negative reactions to the film. I watched the film and while I know it wasn’t for me, I couldn’t help but feel like the film was overly long and felt suited towards a made-for-HBO movie than a big screen theatrical event. But my opinion and the opinions of my mom and female friends don’t seem to matter much because Sex and the City 2 is hurdling towards us and the first trailer for the film has come online.
I don’t have much to say about it other than there’s two lame puns on the name “Carrie” and Kim Cattrall is almost unrecognizable and I don’t mean that in a good way. Also, a female friend who liked the show but hated the first movie made an interesting point about the sequel: now that Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) is married, what’s the point? How would her character even have a job since her column was about single life in Manhattan? I don’t know the answer to that question nor do I particularly care. Sex and the City 2 isn’t for me.
But if you think it may be for you, check out the trailer after the jump. Sex and the City 2 hits theaters on May 28, 2010.
The first official images from Sex and the City 2 have hit the net thanks to our partners at Omelete. While they look exactly like every image from the first movie, or any episode of the show, I’ll trust they’re from the new one. Also, alongside the new images, Omelete scored a synopsis that can only be described as worthless. Read this:
Romantic Comedy. Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda take another bite out of the Big Apple in the sequel to the 2008 summer blockbuster.
I get it, Warner Bros. doesn’t want to spoil any of the twists, but this is pretty bare bones. Hit the jump if you want to see more of Sarah Jessica Parker and Mr. Big (Chris Noth) getting out of a car and some solo shots.
