‘Sex and the City 3’ not gonna hap­pen

Baltimore Sun - - ENTERTAINMENT - — Los An­ge­les Times

Dreams of a “Sex and the City 3” film were dashed Thurs­day night when Sarah Jes­sica Parker told “Ex­tra” that “it’s over.”

“I’m dis­ap­pointed,” Parker said at the New York City Bal­let Gala. “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.”

On Thurs­day, the Daily Mail re­ported that “Sex and the City 3” was scrapped be­cause ac­tress Kim Cat­trall re­fused to sign on.

Cat­trall, who played the char­ac­ter Saman­tha, re­futed the claims on Twit­ter early Fri­day. Sort of.

“The only ‘DE­MAND’ I ever made was that I didn’t want to do a 3rd film,” Cat­trall tweeted, “& that was back in 2016.” But one former co-star doesn’t nec­es­sar­ily agree. Wil­lie Gar­son, who played Stan­ford Blatch in the orig­i­nal series, con­firmed the film’s demise in a sig­nif­i­cantly shady way Fri­day morn­ing.

“And that, is that,” Gar­son tweeted. “And sadly, the rea­sons are true. Pe­riod.....”

“Sex and the City 2” was re­leased in 2010 to abysmal crit­i­cal re­sponse and a run­ning time of nearly 2 hours. Still, the film made al­most $300 mil­lion at the box of­fice.

Cat­trall’s rep did not im­me­di­ately re­spond to the Los An­ge­les Times’ re­quest for com­ment.
