Sarah Jessica Parker wants "Sex and the City 3"...eventually
After disappointing critical and box office returns for "Sex and the City 2," many assumed the HBO/Warner Bros. franchise had run its course. Someone forgot to tell that to series co-producer and star Sarah Jessica Parker. Speaking to the LA Times from the set of her upcoming movie "I Don't Know How She Does It," Parker confirmed, "I'd definitely tell that [third] story, and I know [series maestro Michael Patrick King] would do it right. But maybe not now. Maybe in five years, you know?"
In five years Parker would be 51 and co-stars Cynthia Nixon, Kristin Davis and Kim Cattrall would be 50, 51 and 59 respectively. It's unclear whether even the series' diehard fans would be up for more nights out, high heels and cosmos with the girls, but you don't have to convince Parker the franchise hasn't run out of gas. Parker insists, ""I think there's one more story to tell. I know there is."
One thing is sure, Parker has no clue where the reboot that the series would be rebooted with younger actresses playing the characters in their early 20's before the TV series started. A good guess be because original "Sex" author Candace Bushnell is about to publish "Summer and the City" about a 19-year-old Carrie Bradshaw in New York which seems like perfect reboot material.
"I was like, Wha-a-a-a-t?' " Parker said. "There are a lot of important and interesting stories that 21-year-olds can tell, I don't begrudge any 21-year-old the opportunity to tell their stories. They prove to us on an everyday basis that they're interesting. Even their narcissism is interesting. Even their inertia is interesting. Even their tonal speech patterns are interesting. But I don't think we can pretend to go back," she continued. "It's creating two histories. It's like, 'Oh I didn't know that about Carrie Bradshaw.''
Will HBO and Warner Bros. agree? We're not so sure. Stay tuned...
