BURBANK, Calif., Feb. 17 (UPI) -- U.S. actress Sarah Jessica Parker says she hopes the upcoming sequel to "Sex and the City" is a little lighter than the first movie.
In an interview for "Access Hollywood" and syndicated radio's "The Billy Bush Show," Parker said she would love the new "Sex" movie to be a "massive romp" for the audience. The first movie, which followed up Parker's HBO comedy series of the same name, told a "mature, sophisticated" story that had real heartbreak in it, she said.
The actress admitted that, this time around, writer-director Michael Patrick King will face the challenge of making a fashion-themed movie during a recession.
"'How do we address these economic times in a franchise that has a lot to do with luxury and labels?'... You know, there is a lot that we have to think about because times are very different," continued Parker, who is also a producer on the project. "So these are nice challenges, these are good challenges. I'm glad they are not mine, they are really Michael Patrick's, but we certainly have conversations about them."
The film is to be shot this summer and be released in theaters in the summer of 2010.
