Sex, Mobs of Fans, and the City

September 3, 2009

2008_sex_and_the_city_002As expected, fans were out in drones during the first day of shooting for the sequel of Sex and the City. While they filmed on the Upper East Side a single scene of Sarah Jessica Parker hailing a cab, the fans couldn’t get enough, lagging around for hours.  When shooting was over, the potential of hounding wasn’t over but with SJP’s security in tow there’s no getting close to her.  Ostensibly, she told them to be “nice” to the oglers.

Having seen the series shot many times in and around the city, I remember fans hanging around then too but it was much more subdued so much so that you could even hear shady whispers from production as they complained that SJP “takes way too long to get ready.”  Oh, the good days!

What’s weird?  What’s the hubbub all about really?   SJP can be seen walking the streets of NYC (without security I might add) on many given days.  I have had several run-ins with her.  One of which where she stood literally two feet away from me, in front of my building, juggling a Blackberry, another phone, and a Daffy’s bag.  Only SJP could look F-I-E-R-C-E with a Daffy’s bag!

File under: And, yep, everyone is also trying to find out the details of the script as speculations are abound why Carrie does not wear her wedding ring in some scenes shot.


Sex, Sarah Jessica, and the City…

September 1, 2009

sex_and_the_city.0.0.0x0.290x286Entertainment Tonight’s website reports  Sarah Jessica Parker was spotted in Manhattan, ostensibly shooting the sequel to Sex and the City.

With an expected release of May 2010, I know there is going to be another storm of fans camping out to get glimpses of their getting-up-there idols; rabid media outlets trying to get scene details; spoiler-alerts abound; and two and three versions taped to avert the peering/prying eyes.

While the ever-elusive other character in the series is New York, it does seem to offer all types of unforeseen issues.  It’s all still great publicity for a franchise that seems to have no impending end though.

File under: I am so full of excitement.  I  just can’t wait to see this on… DVD.
