‘Sex and the City’ Sequel Stalled

The Sex and the City sequel has hit a stumbling block over plans to shoot scenes in the United Arab Emirates.

Filming in New York has already been pushed back until the end of August and now sources claim that plans to base part of the plot in Dubai have upset the government of the strict Muslim nation.

A source tells Us Weekly, “The UAE authorities aren’t keen on the title because of the word ‘sex’.”

Studio bosses are hoping the sequel will emulate the huge success of the original movie, which earned $401 million at the worldwide box office.
