Seriously? Another ‘SATC’ Might be in the Works
Full disclaimer: I’ve only seen like two episodes of Sex and the City and exactly none of the films, but still: really? Another one? Isn’t the premise a group of single women in their thirties? It’s been 15 years since the show first aired on HBO. Ladies, you’re all fifty. Enough already.
Sarah Jessica Parker recently told InStyle magazine, “A part of me thinks there is one last chapter to tell. But timing is a peculiar thing. It isn’t a decision that can wait forever.” No, it can’t and sorry, but methinks that ship has sailed. However, the domestic gross for 2010’s Sex and the City 2 was an impressive $95,347,692, and although the film itself cost a staggering $100 million to produce, (What? Why? How?), it doesn’t actually matter because when you factor in international box office numbers and the home video release, the film was a financial success. So, that’s why there is another chapter to tell!
SJP’s sentiments were echoed by co-star Kristin Davis who said,”I don’t think a third film is a pipe dream, there is discussion. People talk about it amongst the people who are the players, but I don’t know if it will come together. It would be very exciting if it did.” For the fans, probably but for the ladies’ other co-star Cynthia Nixon? Not so much. “I think it’s fine to let it go.” While we have yet to hear from Kim Cattrall, it seems the show’s creator agrees with Cynthia. Candace Bushnell has previously admitted that Parker is too old to reprise her role as Carrie Bradshaw. I know it sucks, but we all have to move on people.
