Sarah Jessica Parker told Extra last night at the New York City Ballet Gala that Sex and the City 3 has officially been canceled.
“It’s over… we’re not doing it,” Parker said.
The third film of the popular HBO franchise was scheduled to begin pre-production this fall, but Parker confirms that won’t be happening.
“I’m disapointed. 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,” she added. “But more so for that audience that has been so vocal in wanting another movie.”
So why no Sex and the City 3?
Two words: Kim Cattrall.
Reports have been circulating that the film was shelved due to Cattrall’s demands of Warner Bros.
One source said, “This franchise made her and let’s be frank, it’s all she’s really known for. She kept stalling and was unavailable when answers were needed.”
Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristen Davis all signed on for the concluding chapter, making the film series into a trilogy.
A source said, “‘The only reason this movie isn’t being made is because of Kim Cattrall. Everyone was looking forward to making this movie but Kim made it all about her, always playing the victim.”
“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?”
However, this morning, Cattrall pushed back at the allegations and claims, and said her only demand was that she didn’t want to make a third film.
Woke 2 a @MailOnline ?storm! The only 'DEMAND' I ever made was that I didn't want to do a 3rd film….& that was back in 2016

Whether it’s because of her demands or because she just didn’t want to do the film, it’s clear that the reason why Sex and the City 3 isn’t happening is because of Kim Cattrall.
That’s really a shame, because we would have loved to see the fab foursome back at it again for more one chapter.
