A third installment in the “Sex and the City” movie franchise won’t be happening.
Sarah Jessica Parker, who played Carrie Bradshaw in the HBO TV series and movies, told “Extra” at New York City Ballet Gala on Thursday that the project will not be going forward.
Daily Mail TV reported on Thursday that the project has been shelved by Warner Bros., the studio behind the franchise, because of past “Sex and the City” co star Kim Cattrall’s demands. The studio hasn’t responded to the report, but on Friday, Cattrall said on Twitter her only demand was that she didn’t want to do a third movie.
“It’s over. We’re not doing it,” Parker told Extra. “
“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.”
Kristin Davis, who played Charlotte in the show and films, confirmed the news in a Facebook post:
“I just wanted to say that I am so grateful for all of our beautiful fans for the love and support! I am sad and disappointed that we won’t be able to bring you all the final chapter of ‘SATC.’ Michael Patric (sic) King wrote a beautiful script, that honored our characters and the entire history of the show. I haven’t quite gotten my mind around the fact that Charlotte will not continue on, but the wonderful part of what we do is that the show and movies will live on. So from the bottom of my heart, I am so grateful for the experience of being part of ‘Sex and the City.’ And to the fans, know that we love you back.”
“Please know that we tried very hard for a long time,” Davis told a fan in a Facebook comment.
The hit series centered on four women -- Parker’s character Carrie; Cartrall’s character, Samantha; Charlotte, played by Davis; and Miranda, played by Cynthia Nixon -- and their ups and downs dating in the city of New York.
