The Cutting Room, a performance venue known for hosting endless A-list events and impromptu celebrity jam sessions, will close on 13 January with sharp-tongued American comedienne Joan Rivers giving the final show.
Noth's partner, Steve Walter, insists business has been good, and hopes to reopen another venue in downtown Manhattan by the summer.
He tells the New York Post, "Our rent has tripled since we opened 10 years ago. Our lease was up in September. We tried negotiating with the landlord but couldn't work something out.
"We don't want to lose the momentum."
Noth previously announced his plans of expanding his empire, telling Interview magazine in May: "New York is pretty much commercialised to the point of no return... I want to take the club to Vegas. I think a Cutting Room would be great in Vegas. I just haven't really had the time to go out there and schmooze people and try to get them to invest millions of dollars." »
Talk about a hairy "Sex And The City". The Fox network is officially developing the previously announced "Bitches", a dramedy about a quartet of female friends in New York who are werewolves from "Trick 'R Treat" director Michael Dougherty. The project, which has received a script plus penalty commitment from the network, hails from feature writer Michael Dougherty and Warner Bros. TV. TV writing duo Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts have come on board to supervise Dougherty. The two also will serve as executive producers alongside Dougherty if the project, described as a quirky urban fairy tale, goes to series. "Bitches" continues the werewolf theme from Dougherty's recent horror flick "Trick 'R Treat". 2009 is shaping up to be a big year for werewolves with the release of »

The HBO series was transformed for the big screen and the film's international box office success has paved the way for a sequel.
Lead actress Sarah Jessica Parker recently confirmed plans for a follow-up and Corbett, who played Carrie Bradshaw's love interest, Aidan Shaw, in the show, is desperate to get involved.
And Corbett hopes his character will be able to steal Carrie back from Mr. Big, who she married in Sex and the City: The Movie.
He says, "I'd relish that moment more than you can ever imagine. There may even be a murder involved. It's payback. I think Mr Big deserves it. It'd make a great ending to the movie." »

The actress, who plays Samantha Jones in the TV series-turned-movie franchise, is quoted by the Daily Express as saying: "I am very much looking forward to the casting of lots of young, attractive men for Samantha.

Sex And The City star Kim Cattrall is desperate to start production on the upcoming sequel to this year's hit movie - because she can't wait to meet the young hunks her character Samantha Jones will be bedding.
The 52-year-old actress let slip that a follow up to May's big screen adaptation of the risque show was planned for 2009.
Co-star Sarah Jessica Parker confirmed the project earlier this week (begs24Nov08), telling reporters a script was currently being worked on.
And Cattrall, who plays the show's maneater, is looking forward to giving young men the casting couch experience.
She tells Britain's Daily Express newspaper, "I am very much looking forward to the casting of lots of young, attractive men for Samantha.
"Sometimes, through the course of the series, I would ask if I could come in and at least meet them and I hope I do as well with this."
But if she isn't allowed to spy on her possible co-stars - she is happy to leave the decision making in the capable hands of the movie's boss Michael Patrick King.
She adds, "If that doesn't happen, I trust Michael Patrick King, our executive producer. He has wonderful taste and hasn't put a foot wrong yet!" »
And Guttenberg is hoping to bring both stars back for another movie in the film's franchise - more than a decade after the seventh installment, 1994's Police Academy: Mission to Moscow, was released.
He says, "We are doing a new movie and it is going to be great fun. A script is being written and so far it is really great, everyone from the original movies who is still around will return.
"I know Kim and Sharon have been asked but they haven't said yes yet. It would be really great to have them onboard." »
I'm a huge fan of the Sex And The City movie. In fact, my favourite scene is that rather gratuitous willy scene on the beach. After watching every episode of the television series, I craved a little pit of pork sword action and we finally got it in the movie didn't we girls? I am of course kidding as that whole Satc: The Movie experience was the most painful film that I had to endure at the movies this year. It did well though, hence the reason why we are talking sequel.
It seems that Carrie Bradshaw herself, Sarah Jessica Parker has named a release date for the second movie in the series. Well, release year anyways. 2010.
She said that Paramount are very enthusiastic about the sequel and confirmed that filming could start as early as next summer.
"I think it's a realistic timetable," said Parker. "That's when we'd start »
The sultry star has posed seductively in a photographic remake of Italian classic painting Diana and Actaeon to raise awareness of Britain's National Galleries' campaign to keep the classic work in the U.K.
The painting is owned by the Duke of Sutherland, who has given gallery officials until December to raise the funds needed to buy the artwork on behalf of Britain - or the item will be sold to foreign bidders.
And Cattrall hopes her naked ambition will help raise much needed funds to keep the painting in the country of her birth.
She tells the BBC's Culture Show seeing the painting is "like being in the presence of genius." »
It may have taken a few years to get a Sex and the City movie going after the show ended, but after the success of this summer's follow up to the series, don't expect it to take that long for a second movie. In fact, sequel talk was prevalent as soon as the opening box office numbers were seen. Now it looks like more concrete conversations are going on about what to expect from a sequel, and when it may begin. Leading Sex and the City lady Sarah Jessica Parker gave MTV Movies Blog the inside scoop on the direction of her franchise, and the excitement surrounding a sequel. It looks like the studio really wants to jump on this opportunity, with the possibility of filming starting as early as the summer. That would put the next Sex and the City movie in theaters by 2010, considerably faster than we got »
Sarah Jessica Parker has revealed that a Sex And The City sequel may shoot next summer for a 2010 release. The actress told MTV that writer/director Michael Patrick King has come up with a story for a second big screen outing, but denied that it will involve her character Carrie Bradshaw having a child. She said: "[Motherhood] doesn't seem as if that's going to be a choice she'll make. It feels a little bit manipulative to toss that into the mix because she seems so pointed in a different direction." Parker explained that she wants (more) »

Sex + The City creator Darren Star has spoken out about California's new same-sex marriage ban, assuring the state's gay men and women that it's only a matter of time before the law is overturned again.
Gay marriages were legalised in California in May, but the legislation was overturned last week when voters chose yes on Proposition 8, which ended almost six months of gay wedding ceremonies across the state.
And Star admits he was surprised by the opposition to same-sex nuptials - but he doesn't expect the new ruling to last long.
Speaking to website TheDailyBeast.com, he says, "There is no question in my mind that gay marriage is an inevitability. Californians like to think of themselves as socially progressive and were surprised and angry to wake up to find bigotry introduced into their constitution.
"Exit polls show gay marriage has overwhelming support among younger voters, so obviously this is just a matter of time." »

It's official -- the fabulous ladies of Sex and the City will be talking love and dishing the dirt once again. A sequel to this Summer's follow-up to the HBO series has been confirmed.
The Sex and the City TV show ran on HBO for 94 episodes, from 1998 to 2004. The storyline follows the lives and loves of four women from the Big Apple; writer Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), man-hungry Samantha (Kim Cattrall), conservative Charlotte (Kristin Davis), and workaholic Miranda (Cynthia Nixon).
Almost immediately after the series wrapped, rumors began circulating that a feature film was in the works. Sex and the City: The Movie finally happened and was released in U.S. theaters on May 30th.

The actress, who played maneater Samantha Jones in the hit U.S. TV series, was the last of the original core cast - which included Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis - to agree to star in the big-screen adaptation.
Earlier this year, Parker alluded to the possibility of a sequel to the blockbuster, promising that she and writer/director Michael Patrick King would "have that conversation (about a sequel) sooner rather than later".
And, speaking to pop star Melanie Brown in a U.K. TV interview on Tuesday, Cattrall revealed that a follow-up is indeed in the pipeline.
She told the former Spice Girl: "Yes, there will be a sequel. We will do the sequel next summer.
"We wanted to (film) the first time, and now we're hopefully doing it again for the second time."
However, she added that it was "difficult getting everybody who's so incredibly busy all together at the same time".
The movie Sex And The City stormed international box offices after its May release, grossing more than $391 million (GBP211.4 million) worldwide. »
The show came to an end in 2004 after 10 seasons, but the cast have been dogged by rumours of a possible big screen adaptation ever since.
But Schwimmer insists there has never been any plan to reunite the cast one last time.
He tells Parade magazine, "I'd like to say in regard to the rumours that - I think are only perpetuated by the press - there's never been any talk of a Friends film, at least as far as I know.
"The series is definitely not a part of my daily consciousness until either a fan comes up or I'm asked about it in some interview. It is like having a relative visit because it's been more than four years since really we all were in the same room even." »
Actress Rosario Dawson has denied reports she is engaged to boyfriend Mathieu Schreyer - insisting they are just dating.
The 29-year-old Sin City star has been plagued by rumours she's set marry the DJ since being snapped wearing a gold ring on her wedding finger last summer.
But Dawson insists she's not ready to marry the man she's been dating for less than a year, and the rumours have caused concern among her family members.
When asked to clarify the reports, Dawson tells People.com: "Believe me, no. Oh my God, I'd be getting calls from my grandmother being like, 'Mija! How come I had to read this first?'"
I was flying to San Francisco last week to visit my mistress, and on the plane I was presented with the option of watching Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull or the Sex And The City movie. I gave Indy a chance but was disenchanted within minutes. Meanwhile Carrie and crew had me weeping all the way to the Golden State. So it is with much indifference that I bring you this news, because like most of you I believe the Indy franchise has passed its prime. Nonetheless, Indiana »

Meet "The Washingtoniennes."
Based on the semi-autobiographical book by Jessica Cutler about the sexploits of a low-level female congressional staffer with powerful men on Capitol Hill, "Washingtonienne" revolves around the professional and personal lives of three smart, sophisticated 28-year-old girls working on the Hill.
At the center is Jackie (Taylor), a recent transplant from New York who has decided to pursue a career as a speechwriter but first must work her way up from the intern desk.
Her mentor in the ways of Washington is her old college friend April (Tulloch), who has been on the Hill since graduation and lives a prematurely middle-age lifestyle with a boyfriend who seems more in love with his flashy senator boss than with her.

Kelsey Grammer has ruled out the possibility of a Frasier movie. The actor, whose new sitcom Back To You was cancelled earlier this year, says he does not want the show to follow in the footsteps of The X Files and Sex And The City. "I hope not - it's just bound to be a failure," he said. "I like them on television. I even like Sex And The City on television. I know it had great success. "But stylistically, the way it's shot, you could kind of buy that it could be a film. It wasn't such (more) »
