Desert storm over filming of sexy sequel
Published 17/05/2010 | 05:00
Troubled relationships are nothing new for 'Sex and the City' storylines. But this one takes it to a different level: a possible snub from the Gulf city that plays the exotic backdrop in the movie sequel.
Less than two weeks before the release of 'Sex and the City 2', it is still unclear if the film will be shown in oil-rich United Arab Emirates' capital Abu Dhabi -- the setting where Carrie and her chic New York posse swap their Jimmy Choos for sandals and kick some sand at Middle Eastern traditions. In 2008, the original SATC film was not shown in the UAE.
The National Media Council, responsible for oversight of films and other media in the UAE, declined to comment last night.
