SJP Confirms “Sex And The City 3” Status: “We’re Not Doing It”

“It’s not halted, it’s over."

While attending the New York City Ballet Gala earlier this week, Sarah Jessica Parker officially squashed all hope for a third Sex and the City movie.

“It’s not halted, it’s over,” she told Extra on the red carpet. “We’re not doing it.”

“I’m disappointed,” she continued. “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.”

Parker’s confirmation comes on the heels of the Daily Mail’s report that the Warner Bros film, which was set to begin pre-production this month, had been shelved due to co-star Kim Cattrall’s “outrageous demands.” Neither Cattrall nor her reps could be reached for comment.

“Everyone was looking forward to making this movie but Kim made it all about her, always playing the victim,” said an unnamed source. “Kim had the audacity to tell Warner Bros that she would only do this if they made other movies she had in development. Ridiculous. Who does she think she is—George Clooney?”

Sex and the City co-star Kristen Davis also confirmed the bad news in a nostalgic Instagram post.

“It is true that we are not going to be able to make a 3rd film,” she wrote. “I wish that we could have made the final chapter, on our own terms, to complete the stories of our characters.”

I love to look back at the pics from our LONG history of Sex and the City. I am incredibly lucky to have gotten to play Charlotte through all of her ups and downs ( epitomized in one of my favorite episodes here). It is true that we are not going to be able to make a 3rd film. I wish that we could have made the final chapter, on our own terms, to complete the stories of our characters. It is deeply frustrating not to able to share that chapter (beautifully written by MPK) with all of you. So we will just have our memories, but please know that all of the love and support for us through the years is felt by us and we are so grateful for all of you!SATC forever in our hearts ❤️💗❤️💗❤️💗❤️💗

The popular HBO series, which began in 1998 and wrapped in 2004, continued with films in 2008 and 2010. Speculation about a third installment has circulated for years, but it was reported in December that all four stars—Parker, Cattrall, Davis, and Cynthia Nixon—had officially signed on and had approved creator Michael Patrick King’s script.

Could Parker and Davis be publicly shaming Cattrall into lessening her demands?
