Sarah Jessica Parker seems to be on board for a third Sex and the City movie, but it may be out of her hands whether Carrie Bradshaw comes back to the big screen.
The show’s writer, Michael Patrick King, said it will come down to whether there are any good stories left to wring out about the famous friends.
“[Sex and the City] spilled over into people’s lives and the characters were rounded enough that you could still wonder where they are,” King, 59, told Entertainment Weekly. “What I do know is that there’s interest… It’s all really about the stories, and if you actually think you have something left to say that would make it exciting and worthwhile for the fans’ time, that’s really the question. Not whether you can get away with it, not whether anybody will buy it, not whether you can make money on it.”
Sarah Jessica Parker has hinted at a third Sex and the City film before. Late last year, Parker said that she is open to playing Carrie Bradshaw again and even hinted that a project may be in the works.
“I don’t think [a third film] is a pipe dream, there is discussion,” Davis told Haute Living. “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.”
In January, she told InStyle that there is potential for one last film in the popular series.
“A part of me thinks there is one last chapter to tell,” Parker told InStyle.
But she added that the movie won’t be able to wait forever.
“But timing is a peculiar thing,” she said. “It isn’t a decision that can wait forever. I don’t want to have to wear muumuus!”
The box office potential is certainly there for Sex and the City 3. The second film, released in 2010, grossed more than $305 million worldwide. The first movie, released in 2008, grossed over $415 million worldwide.
While Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall have expressed openness to a third film if the story is right, Cynthia Nixon may be the holdout. In 2012 she told The Hollywood Reporter that it may be “time to let it go.”
