Although earlier reports indicate that a third “Sex and the City” movie is off the table, one star isn’t losing her hope.
Actress Kristin Davis, who played Charlotte York, recently spoke publicly where she encouraged fans not to lose hope as the final word on a third movie hasn’t necessarily been written. Speaking at the 2017 Princess Grace Awards Gala, which she hosted, the star addressed the recently scrapped movie project.
“I’m just grateful. I know my co-stars are grateful as well that we have the fan support, that we have each other, that we love each other,” she told E! News. “We still… maybe we’ll figure something to do, I don’t know, it would be great.”
The star went on to thank the fans for support, stopping short of saying their interest could spark another film.
As previously reported, the ladies of “Sex and the City” took to social media in September to announce that the movie was not going to be going into production, which was the original plan.
“I am sad and disappointed that we won’t be able to bring you all the final chapter of SATC (Sex and the City). Michael Patrick King wrote a beautiful script that honored our characters and the entire history of the show,” Davis wrote on Facebook at the time. “I haven’t quite gotten my mind around the fact that Charlotte will not continue on….. But the wonderful part of what we do is that the show and movies will live on. So from the bottom of my heart, I am grateful for the experience of being part of Sex and the City. And to the fans - know that we love you back, forever.”
It was rumored that one of the key hangups stopping the movie from production was Kim Cattrall, who played Samantha Jones in the series, not wanting to do a third movie. She took to Twitter soon after to reveal that she was off-board with a third film as early as 2016.
The 61-year-old Cattrall later appeared on “Piers Morgan’s Life Stories where she explained that the series was a large factor in her decision not to have children.
“But I thought to myself, ‘Wow, I have 19-hour days on this series,” Cattrall said. "I have weekends where I finish at Saturday morning. My Monday morning would start at 4:45 a.m. and go to one or two in the morning. How could I possibly continue to do that, especially in my early 40s?”
