Sex and the City fans, time to grab your cosmos and Manolo Blahniks because the iconic New York City series is in the midst of filming their latest reboot, And Just Like That. This time around, the gals take on the big city with their families and designer handbags in tow.
The movie has undergone a facelift, with the Samantha Jones’ (played by Kim Cattrall) character missing from the film. Creative differences between the actress and Sarah Jessica Parker led to the departure of Kim’s character. In efforts to shake things up, they’ve added Nicole Ari Parker, Karen Pittman, and Sarita Choudhury to the cast.
There’s no secret the show lacked in diversity. Based in the melting pot of the United States, SATC often received criticism for its lack of Black and Brown representation. How can you possibly highlight New York City without including people of color who directly contribute to its culture? In the first film, SATC introduced Louise (played by Jennifer Hudson), a personal assistant to Carrie Bradshaw. Some felt like this was a start to adding a new flavor to the franchise, but ultimately the franchise missed the mark.
Judging by the first looks of the cast filming, Nicole Ari Parker’s character is anything but the help. The actress flashed a huge smile clad in an abstract printed Issey Miyake dress, a chunky Monies chain-linked necklace, Giuseppe Zanoti sandals, and an oversized Veronica Silicani purse. Parker is bringing the beauty, labels, and fashion for this movie! Her character plays Lisa Todd Wexley, a wealthy mother of three who lives on Park Avenue.
What do you think of the new cast lineup? Are you excited to see And Just Like That?
