Carrie Bradshaw and friends have a summer date. A summer release date.
The Sex and the City big-screen sequel will hit theaters May 28, 2010, the film's studio, New Line Cinema, confirmed Wednesday.
The prime Memorial Day weekend slot positions Sex and the City 2 not only as a summer blockbuster, but as counterprogramming to the big-budget adventure Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, starring Jake Gyllenhaal, also set for May 28, 2010.
The romantic-comedy franchise at least has the blockbuster part down: Last year's first Sex and the City movie, bringing a wide-angle lens to the 1998-2004 HBO series, grossed $415 million worldwide off a $65 million budget.
As reported in February by E! News' Marc Malkin, all four Sex stars—Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon—are set and signed for the sequel, as is writer-director Michael Patrick King.
