And just like that.. The Sex and the City reboot just got a little more interesting!
According to The Guardian Nicole Ari Parker has been billed to replace Kim Cattrall in the Sex and the City reboot, after the backlash that accompanied the news that the era-defining show’s most iconic character was done with the series.
Ari Parker, known for starring in the acclaimed series Empire as well as Paul Thomas Anderson’s Boogie Nights, will reportedly replace Cattrall as the fourth member of the New York friend group. According to the Mail on Sunday, Ari Parker, 50, will play Carrie Bradshaw’s new best friend, documentary-maker Lisa Todd Wexley.
The reboot will be titled And Just Like That … and will be executive produced by three of the original show’s four main stars – Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon – as well as writer Michael Patrick King.
Even during Sex and the City’s peak, there were rumour of friction between cast members. Two years ago, Cattrall made it clear that she felt her association with the series was over.
“I went past the finish line playing Samantha Jones because I loved Sex and the City,” she said.
“It was a blessing in so many ways but after the second movie I’d had enough.
I couldn’t understand why they wouldn’t just replace me with another actress instead of wasting time bullying. No means no.”
Well looks like Kim now has her wish.
We cannot wait to see Nicole kill this role on screen.
