Third ‘Sex and the City’ Flick Gets Rush Green-Light Before Anyone Can Make Any ‘Golden Girls’ Cracks

Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall and the rest of the gang have faced plenty of awkward situations during the Sex and the City saga, but facing the ravages of time is one sticky situation that they’d apparently prefer to head off at the pass.

Though the sequel to 2008’s Sex and the City movie isn’t due to hit theaters for another four months, a third installment of the Adventures of Carrie and Crew is reportedly already being rushed into production. What’s the hurry? Well, the movie’s stars are getting up there in age, and apparently the studio feels that Menopause and the City won’t put the meat in the seats. A source spills:

“There is also a third movie on the go. It’s under wraps for publicity reasons. It makes sense to film the second and third movies back-to-back. The characters will look a lot younger on screen when the third movie is out in a couple of years.”

Smart move, ladies. But here’s a protip: If you want to appear younger in the next film, it’s probably not wise to have any teenage pop stars stand next to you in the thing. May we suggest an alternate?
