Sarah Jessica Parker is in negotiations for indie comedy ‘Married and Cheating’.

Sarah Jessica Parker is in negotiations for indie comedy ‘Married and Cheating’.

The ‘Sex and the City’ star – who is currently filming romantic comedy ‘I Don’t Know How She Does It’ in New York – would star alongside Marisa Tomei in the movie, set to be directed by Raymond De Felitta.

The movie, which is set in New York and Paris, tells the tale of three married couples who are struggling to stay happy and in long-term relationships.

Michael London – who has previously worked with Sarah Jessica on ‘The Family Stone’ – will produce the project alongside Lauren Versel.

Although best known for two movies and six TV series of ‘Sex and the City’, the 45-year-old actress has starred in a number of other big films, including 1993’s ‘Hocus Pocus’ with Bette Midler and sci-fi comedy ‘Mars Attacks!’.

Last month Sarah Jessica and her ‘Sex and the City’ co-stars Kristin Davis, Cynthia Nixon and Kim Cattrall were all awarded the Worst Screen Ensemble award at the Golden Raspberry awards – a tongue-in-cheek ceremony for the worst displays of Hollywood output - for the critically-panned second instalment of the movie franchise.

Speaking about the movie, founder John Wilson said: "It was released in the middle of a period of American history when everyone's scrounging not to lose their homes.

"And these women are riding around in Rolls-Royces, buying expensive shoes and just throwing money around like they're drunk."
