Sex and the City is a show that has not aged well. When it debuted back in the '90s it was groundbreaking for the time period, showing women who had active and full lives, while trying to establish their place in the world. But by the second SatC movie in 2010, the series was a shell of its former self, almost parody-level. And yet, people keep talking about a sequel. Will Sex And The City 3 ever happen?
In a word, no.
Look, ya'll. It's been seven *years* since the really bad second movie in Dubai came out. Obama had six full years as president since then. Our culture radically shifted, both in a seriously progressive leftist direction, before a sudden snap on November 9, 2016 and is now radically returning to center and then swinging rightward. Sex and the City was struggling with relevancy before being woke was even a thing. You really think there's a world where it belongs now?
I mean, maybe there could have been. Maybe Sarah Jessica Parker and her co-creator Darren Star has something up their sleeves in the "25 years later" vein, like Twin Peaks pulled out this past summer. But I highly doubt it.
The problem is, they don't seem to realize that's the real issue.
Instead Sarah Jessica Parker and the production team made sure that when the news was leaked to the Daily Mail that Warner Brothers had cancelled Sex and the City 3 before it was able to flop... they could pin the blame of Kim Cattrall.
Sex and the City 3 was scheduled to start filming this fall - everything was set and ready to roll, DailyMailTV has learned exclusively. But Kim Cattrall has caused the film to be shelved due to her demands of Warner Bros. Said one source: '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.'
The actress, 61, known for her role of Samantha Jones, wanted the company to produce movies she had in development or she wouldn't sign on. Warner Bros refused and now the script by Michael Patrick King is languishing, leaving the cast and crew in limbo. Pre-production for the anticipated film was due to start any day and filming was expected to begin in the fall
Another source said: 'Everyone was looking forward to making this movie but Kim made it all about her, always playing the victim'
Well today, Cattrall fired back, appearing on Piers Morgan's show, at Parker' pulling her name through the mud:
...At this very moment it's quite extraordinary to get any kind of negative press about something that I've been saying for almost a year of 'no' that I'm demanding or a diva. And this is really where I take to task the people from Sex and the City and specifically Sarah Jessica Parker in that I think she could have been nicer. I really think she could have been nicer. I don't know what her issue is, I never have.
Raise your hand if you always knew that Sex and the City would end with a Parker-Cattrall feud! Someone call Ryan Murphy, I have a idea for Feud Season 3....
The fact is, the role of Samantha was the attention getter on SatC, even though Parker's Carrie was supposed to be the central person everyone talked about. The tension between the two of them, the more popular character hogging the spotlight from the supposed star of the show, has been there ever since 1998.
Cattrall knows it too, but you know, she's too polite to say, now isn't she? Farewell, Sex and the City. I suppose we'll always have Miranda's happy ending anyway.
