Sex and the City star Sarah Jessica Parker told Parade that a third Sex and the City movie is in the works. “I know what the story is,” said Parker in the August 19, 2011 interview. “It’s a small story, but I think it should be told. The question is, what’s the right time to tell it?”
The question left unasked is do we really need/want another Sex and the City film? The creative well apparently ran dry before Sex and the City 2, with that film receiving overwhelmingly negative reviews from critics.
Rumor had it that if there was another Sex and the City project, it would be a prequel that did not involve any of the four lead actresses from the HBO series and two feature films. Kristin Davis wasn’t keen on that idea, telling The Hollywood Reporter, “Not so into the prequel movie, because we’re us and we’ve discussed our history in the show already so for all of our fervent fans who listen to what we say, why would we rewrite that? And then have like different people with our names? It’s kind of freaky.”
Despite the negative reviews, 2010’s Sex and the City 2 collected $280 million worldwide before exiting theaters.
