The four stars from the series -- Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon -- came aboard last month ng-gestating feature moved forward after New Line Cinema came on board to finance and distribute it.

Production on the film -- written by and to be directed by the series' executive producer Michael Patrick King -- is slated to begin in September in New York.

Noth stars on NBC's Law & Order: Criminal Intent, which also shoots in New York, and he will work on both projects simultaneously.

The series finale of Sex and the City ended with Mr. Big flying to Paris to profess his love for Carrie (Parker) and bring her home to New York.
