Call it a mistake from the get-go, your guilty pleasure or some of the best movies ever but it looks like the third installment of the Sex and the City films will not go ahead.
Sarah Jessica Parker herself confirmed the news following rumours that co-star Kim Cattrall put the kibosh on the film with her demands. “It’s over… we’re not doing it. I’m disappointed. We had this beautiful, funny, heartbreaking, joyful, very relatable script and story. ”
Parker’s confirmation came just hours after it was announced that Cattrall had caused production to shut down just days before shooting was set to begin. Warner Bros had given the much-anticipated film the green light after months of speculation, and the movie was supposed to start filming in the coming days. However, the studio can no longer move ahead as Cattrall, 61, demanded they produce other movies she had in development or she wouldn’t sign up for the project. Warner Bros refused to meet her demands and had to cancel production, as the company decided it wouldn’t be fair to fans to produce a movie with only three of the four main characters.
Neither Cattrall nor her reps could be reached for comment.
Should this be the end for the Sex and the City movies or should they go ahead without Kim Cattrall/Samantha Jones?
