The weirdness of this is just a little bit overwhelming. "Sex in the City 2," the sequel to "Sex in the City," will feature scenes in Abu Dhabi...that are filmed in Morocco. The reason the crew couldn't get into the UAE to film are probably by now familiar. As The National reported in August, the films' producers' request to film portions in Dubai Studio City were declined "by taking into consideration the multicultural fabric of the society and its perceptions", according to a statement by Location Approval Services. The original film did not appear on UAE movie screens either, though it did show on Showtime in the region.
