Sex and the City creator Michael Patrick King has revealed that he and Sarah Jessica Parker are in talks for a third adaptation of the film series.
The executive producer of the HBO television show and movies confessed during an interview with Entertainment Weekly that he wants to reunite the foursome.
‘Sarah Jessica and I both know what that final chapter is,’ said Mr. King. ‘That doesn’t mean it will or should be told, but I do think there’s one story left. Whether it ever happens is a whole other situation. But there’s four girls, and those girls are still on my mind,’ he added.
Sarah Jessica Parker also expressed a desire for a third Sex and the City installment in May last year.
That would mean signing up Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon, as well as David Eigenberg who plays Miranda’s husband Steve and Chris Noth who plays Carrie’s soulmate Mr. Big — aka John James Preston.
‘I’ve been saying… there is one story left to tell,’ Ms Parker told Extra. ‘If it is, in fact, the right time and the right place, maybe we should tell it. It would be wonderful. It’s fun to ponder.’
Sex And The City 2, which was panned by critics and fans in 2010 with the Rotten Tomatoes score of just 15per cent, focused on the four ladies on a luxury trip to Abu Dhabi. Carrie’s marriage went through a rough patch after she ran into her ex-love Aiden in the Middle Eastern city, but the New Yorker and Mr. Big were able to smooth things over.
It has been assumed that a third movie would delve into Carrie and Big finally starting a family.
The show went off the air exactly ten years ago, in February 2004, with its emotional finale delivering series-high ratings. Four years later, Sex and the City the movie hit theaters and raked in $152million at the U.S. box office; Sex and the City 2 made just $95million.
