Pull up the legwarmers and feather the hair, ladies. The new Sex and the City movie goes where the first one didn’t dare: Back to the ’80s.
“Expect lots of fun,” Kim Cattrall told PEOPLE at the Artists for Peace and Justice fundraiser in Toronto Friday night. “Audiences definitely will want to see what we have planned.”
Though Cattrall, 53, is staying mum on the storyline, she raves about a scene in which she, Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis relive the decade of Reagan, punk rock and excess on the streets of New York.
“It was so much fun to relive the wild and crazy fashions of the ’80s,” Cattrall says. “I absolutely loved the four different looks of all of us. We were all so uniquely different that we all couldn’t stop admiring our different looks. There was lots of laughing, and it was a blast!”
And despite long-simmering rumors of feuds, Cattrall says there’s nothing more comfortable than going back to work as part of a foursome.
“Working with the three women is so easy,” she says. “I mean seven years of doing the series and the first movie and now two years later being back feels like being home. It’s so much fun. There is a saying that you can’t go home again but on Sex and the City, you can.
But there is one thing that’s changed: the lengths snooping photographers and fans will go to in order to glean storylines from the movie, which is slated to hit theaters in May 2010.
“When I carry my script to the set, it’s amplified and any clue is deciphered,” she says. “So going to work everyday, I now I have to put that in a book to make sure nobody can see it.”
