Are Carrie and Mr. Big still together? Did Charlotte adopt a baby from China? How is Miranda liking motherhood? Is Samantha still, uh, keeping things interesting?

Those questions, no doubt occupying the thoughts of many “Sex and the City” fans since the long-running HBO series ended in 2004, may finally be answered — in a much-talked-of but still unrealized feature film spun from the show.

New Line Cinema is close to inking a deal to finance and distribute the film in association with HBO, John Smith, a representative at New Line, confirmed Thursday. Daily Variety reported the news Wednesday. Smith said its report was accurate and did not provide further details.

The four principal actresses — Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon — will reprise their roles. Michael Patrick King, who executive-produced the series, is slated to direct.

The making of a “Sex and the City” movie has been bandied about since the show left the air. There have been reports that the delay was due in some part to Cattrall, who played the sex-obsessed Samantha Jones, asking for a higher salary and creative input.
