Sarah Jessica Parker may have moved on from her Sex and the City “Carie Bradshaw” role, but she hasn’t left New York City. In this new upcoming film (based on the novel) “I Don’t Know How She Does It“, Parker stars as a financial exec named Kate Reddy, who juggles her demanding job with being the provider for her husband and two kids. Not only is Parker’s character living and working in the Big Apple, but she’s also narrating in the film. Sound familiar? With these similarities, clearly they’re after the SITC fans and it’s essentially about Carrie Bradshaw with children.
The film is jam packed with familiar faces. Kelsey Grammer plays Parker’s boss in the film, while former Gossip Girl babe, Jessica Szohr (who played Vanessa on GG) plays the nanny. Other cast include: Greg Kinnear, Olivia Munn, Seth Meyers, and Pierce Brosnan among others.
Despite how cookie cutter this chick flick looks, I have to admit that I’m a fan of the ensemble they’ve brought together and I’ll probably watch it. That said, I’ll most likely wait and watch it on my Apple TV as opposed to theaters. Check out the trailer below. The film comes out on September 16th, 2011.
