Sex And The City sequel is a go

With a staggering sense of inevitability, it looks like the girls of New York will be back for more shopping, sipping and, er, sexing as the Sex And The City sequel has its main cast in place.

By that, we of course mean stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Lim Cattrall, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis, who make up the central foursome, have all signed deals, paving the way for the movie itself to get going.

True, there’s no start date set for the film – and it doesn’t even have a script yet – but with the cast and writer/director Michael Patrick King all signed on, very little short of a super volcano will keep New Line from trying to cash in again.

The company is hoping that the film can hit the fast track this year for a summer 2010 release slot.
