HBO has dropped plans for a Sex and the City feature film after Kim Cattrall refused to commit. (But she's nothing like Samantha. Really.) According to Variety, Cattrall insisted on having both script approval and a paycheck equal to series star Sarah Jessica Parker. When HBO refused to meet her demands, the diva apparently backed out and instead signed on to Disney's upcoming skating flick Ice Princess. Cattrall's rep says her client "waited as long as possible with no script or start date and felt she had to take other offers that were presented to her." Responds HBO, diplomatically: "We've had six wonderful years with the show and we're extremely proud of what we've accomplished." Translation: "We let you frolic naked with Jason Lewis and this is the thanks we get?!?! Why, you ungrateful [bleep]!"
