Michael Patrick King Controls the "City"

May 24, 2007 (4:56 am) GMT
MTV has claimed that Michael Patrick King will also take the director's seat in "Sex and the City" apart from writing its script.

Not only working on the script, Michael Patrick King turns out to also assume helming duties in "", the big screen version of the hugely popular series originally aired on HBO back in 1998-2004, MTV has reported.

Pic thereby will be King's directorial debut for a big screen feature as he previously only took helming duties on small screen productions, including ten episodes of "City" series. The guy recently was said by the show regular Mario Cantone to have already begun writing work on the movie's screenplay.

On the other hand, it appears that none of the series' stars have signed on yet to reprise their roles for the version despite the plan to carry out the filming process this fall, Cantone, who played Anthony Marantino in the original, has told the site.

"They called me about my availability, but nothing's negotiated," the actor revealed. "Hopefully if all the negotiations go well, it will happen in the fall. HBO's just gotta give everybody what they want. It better get done cause I want to do it."
