The Man Who Came to Dinner: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sarah Jessica Parker, who recently ended her six-year run as Carrie Bradshaw on HBO's "Sex and the City," is in discussions with DreamWorks about taking a lead role in the studio's big-screen redo of "The Man Who Came to Dinner."

Details of the project are being closely guarded, but it is known that Michael Leeson wrote a version of the script, which is being shepherded by studio co-heads Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald.

Negotiations have not yet begun for Parker to fill the role, sources said, because her agreement to star is contingent upon whom the studio finds to take the lead male role. Steve Martin was offered the part, but his reps confirmed that he recently passed on the project.
