Are Kristin Davis and Aaron Sorkin Dating?

Valerie Macon/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Sex and the City actress Kristin Davis is in the early stages of a relationship with Oscar-winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin, according to E! News.

A source says they’ve been dating for about six weeks, adding, “They are really happy. They have actually known each other a while through mutual friends and would sometimes bump into one another at industry events, but it has only just turned into something more.”

The 50-year-old Sorkin, whose recent screenwriting credits include The Social Network and Moneyball, was married to Julia Bingham from 1996 to 2005, and was later romantically linked to actress Kristin Chenoweth.

Davis, 47, has never been married.

‘Sex and the City’ Prequel: Actress Selected to Portray Carrie Bradshaw

JIL Studio/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) -- The next – or at least the earlier – version of iconic Sex and the City main character Carrie Bradshaw has been selected.

AnnaSophia Robb, an 18-year-old actress best known for her role as real-life shark attack survivor Bethany Hamilton in the 2011 movie Soul Surfer, has been cast as the shoe-loving, man-crazy Manhattanite in the CW network’s new series The Carrie Diaries, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The new show will be based off of author Candice Bushnell’s novel of the same name, itself a prequel to her book Sex and the City.

The Carrie Diaries will aim for a younger audience then the demo HBO’s Sex and the City targeted as it follows Bradshaw as a 1980s Manhattan teen navigating the world of boys, school and friendship. In the novel, however, the younger Carrie is portrayed living in a small town in Connecticut.

However, Parker's rep told E! Online that Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda will not be getting together anytime soon and the story is "completely false."

Kim Cattrall: What Happened to 'Sex and the City's Samantha Jones?'

Samir Hussein/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- For years, Kim Cattrall attracted a huge fan base on Sex and the City with her portrayal of Samantha Jones, a shamelessly confident "cougar" who wasn't afraid to take her sexuality by the reins. Known for her raunchy quips and one-night stands, Samantha became a favorite with viewers.

And for a while, Kim Cattrall capitalized on the message of sexual freedom her character stood for. In 2003, she released a how-to book with then husband Mark Levinson called Satisfaction: The Art of the Female Orgasm. In 2006, the year after Sex and the City ended, Cattrall followed up with Sexual Intelligence, a coffee table book, and an HBO documentary of the same name. It seemed as if Kim Cattrall and Samantha Jones were one and the same, until recently.

At the March 29 premiere of her recent indie movie, Meet Monica Velour, in which Cattrall plays a former adult film star who turns to stripping to pay the bills, she reportedly went on a red carpet tirade, lashing out at several female reporters at New York's Landmark Theater. When a New York Post reporter asked her about a story that she had gotten a bikini wax earlier that day, Cattrall said, "That's a stupid question." She then told a Page Six reporter that being a gossip columnist wasn't a "respectable job," suggesting that she work for Reuters or write a blog.

After Keith Bearden, Meet Monica Velour's director, told reporters about an embarrassing moment on the set in which Cattrall's 21-year-old co-star Dustin Ingram reportedly got aroused during a steamy kissing scene, the New York Daily News tried to get Cattrall to comment. But she claimed not to know what the director was talking about, retorting, "You know, as a woman, I really find those questions offensive."

The media has gone into a frenzy, questioning whether the actress, who once channeled the easygoing and sex-driven Samantha Jones, had gone prude on everyone.

And a sudden reserve is not the only apparent break with her Sex and the City character: Samantha never had any qualms about aging, but 54-year-old Cattrall told the New York Post, "Do you know what it's like to be 54 and marginalized? It doesn't get easier as you get older."

"Sex and the City" Coming Back for a Third Film?

Photo Courtesy - Warner Bros Entertainment Inc./Home Box Office, Inc.Sex and the City may return for thirds.  Despite rumors the franchise has run its course, star Sarah Jessica Parker says there still might be some life left in it.

She told New York magazine last week, "I don't know the future; I would say that you never know what will happen with that particular franchise.  It's less about the reviewers than it is about the audience, and they've been pretty true, so we tend to listen to them more than anybody else."

Parker made sure to put the responsibility on director, writer and producer Michael Patrick King, saying, "If Michael Patrick didn't put those words into those characters' mouths, I don't think people would respond for so many years.  So we’ll see.  Who knows?"
