Sex and the City sequel announced

The stars of Sex and the City
Sex and the City: The Movie was a hit in the UK and the US

The stars of Sex and the City have signed up for a sequel to last year's hit film of the US TV show.

The film, due to be released by Warner Bros in summer 2010, will reunite Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon.

Michael Patrick King, who wrote and directed Sex and the City: The Movie, has also signed up for the sequel.

King said in a statement that he was "very excited to work with these amazing actresses again".

Friction

Sex and the City: The Movie was a big hit all over the world, reaching the number one spot in the UK and making $56.8m (38.5m) in its opening weekend in the US.

The DVD release sold more than 920,000 copies in its opening week in the UK.

The film was based on the hit US TV series, which focuses on the lives of writer Carrie Bradshaw (Parker) and friends Samantha (Cattrall), Miranda (Nixon) and Charlotte (Davis).

It had been reported there was friction between the lead actresses, but last May, Parker told BBC talk show host Jonathan Ross that she "loved those women".
