The former Sex and the City star will reportedly play a martini-soaked, high society southern debutant with trailer park roots.
Does that sound perfect or what?
The new incarnation of Queer As Folk will follow a diverse group of friends in New Orleans whose lives are transformed in the aftermath of a tragedy.
The original U.S. iteration of the show was set in Pittsburgh and aired on Showtime from 2000-2005.
In addition to the QAF news, Cattrall has also recently wrapped the film About My Father with Robert DeNiro and is currently shooting the Hulu series “How I Met My Father.”
In the last week, Kim Cattrall was cast as the future of Hilary Duff’s character in How I Met Your Mother and she scored a role in Queer as Folk. She doesn’t need to be in a situation for even an hour where she’s not enjoying herself. And just like that, she’s gonna be just fine. pic.twitter.com/ik5oLImKA9
