Despite earlier reports that claimed that a third Sex and the City movie was happening, Sarah Jessica Parker has revealed that that’s no longer the case.
There aren’t enough Cosmos in the world to help us drown our sorrows…
The Sex and the City 3 script has already been written, and the movie was set to begin production this year, but SJP revealed that it’s no longer going ahead.
“It’s over. We’re not doing it. I’m disappointed,” she said in an interview with Extra.
“We had this beautiful, funny, heart-breaking, 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.”
Although SJP didn’t go into too much detail about why the movie was no longer happening, it’s being speculated that the studio may have had some problems with Samantha Jones actress, Kim Cattrall.
Although neither Kim nor any of her reps have commented, it wouldn’t be completely unsurprising to learn that she had something to do with the halt in production, as she made her thoughts on a third movie rather clear…
“I think the climate changed,” she told The Daily Record last year, when asked about her thoughts on a third movie.
“To have four women talking about shopping trips and spending $400 on shoes when people are having trouble putting food on the table?
“It doesn’t mean we don’t need that, but I think the pendulum swung in a different direction.”
However, she has also mentioned her attachment to her beloved Samantha Jones character, which is what elevated our hopes in the first place…
“It would be a challenge to do a third installment. It could be fun though,” she added at the time.
“To say goodbye completely to Samantha would be pretty hard.”
We don’t know about you, but this is not the news we needed on a Friday morning. To say we share Sarah Jessica Parker’s disappointment is a complete understatement.
Now please excuse us while we binge watch the Sex and the City box-set and the last two movies…
