The third and final Sex and the City is never gonna see a movie screen. Plans for a third film in the franchise were scrapped this month, according to Sarah Jessica Parker. She said,
““It’s over… we’re not doing it. I’m disappointed. We had this beautiful, funny, heartbreaking, joyful, very relatable script and story. It’s not just disappointing that we don’t get to tell the story and have that experience, but more so for that audience that has been so vocal in wanting another movie.”
A source close to the production said:
“The only reason this movie isn’t being made is because of Kim Cattrall. Everyone was looking forward to making this movie but Kim made it all about her, always playing the victim.
Kim had the audacity to tell Warner Bros that she would only do this if they made other movies she had in development. Ridiculous. Who does she think she is – George Clooney?“
According to The Daily Mail, Cattrall told Piers Morgan’s show Life Stories her side of the story,
“At this very moment it’s quite extraordinary to get any kind of negative press about something that I’ve been saying for almost a year of ‘no’ that I’m demanding or a diva. And this is really where I take to task the people from ‘Sex and the City’ and specifically Sarah Jessica Parker, in that I think she could have been nicer.
I really think she could have been nicer. I don’t know what her issue is. I never have.”
Parker has said of the rumors she didn’t get along with Cattrall,
“It used to really confound me and really upset me. Was everyday perfect? Were people always desperately hopelessly in love with each other? No. But this was a family of people who needed each other, relied on each other and loved each other.
Cattrall says she was approached last December about making a third Sex and the City movie, but immediately knew she had no interest in appearing in the project, despite the producers insistence.
“I remember so clearly making that decision, and last December I got a phone call and it was concerning that and I knew exactly, I could feel it, and the answer was simply, ‘thank you, but no, I’m good.’
This isn’t about more money, this is not about more scenes, it’s not about any of those things. This is about a clear decision, an empowered decision in my life to end one chapter and start another. I’m 61. It’s now.
They all have children and I am 10 years older, and since specifically the series ended I have been spending most of my time outside of New York so I don’t see them. The common ground that we had was the series, and the series is over.”
Guess that’s that then. Anything to add Carrie?
