Sex and the City fans were left heartbroken last month when Sarah Jessica Parker confirmed a third movie was officially not happening. Rumors began to develop as The Daily Mail reported that the reason for the film’s cancellation was due to actress Kim Cattrall not wanting to participate in the third film unless Warner Bros. met demands the studio was unwilling to make.
Cattrall refuted the report adding that she said she stated she would not be interested in doing a third film a year earlier in 2016. Cattrall told Piers Morgan in an interview recently that the reasons for not participating in another movie had nothing to do with demands or more money, but was simply “an empowered decision in my life to end one chapter and start another.”
The Samantha Jones actress also said her co-stars, specifically Sarah Jessica Parker, could have been “a little nicer” toward her on the situation.
“We’ve never been friends,” Cattrall said. “We’ve been colleagues and in some ways it’s a very healthy place to be because then you have a clear line between your professional life and relationship and your personal.”
She suggested that another actress could play Samantha Jones.
“I played it past the finish line and then some and I loved it and another actress should play it,” she said. “Maybe they could make it an African-American Samantha Jones or a Hispanic Samantha Jones, or bring in another character.”
But Cattrall does seem ready to move on from the drama with no hard feelings, adding that she wishes her co-stars the best and if is to be a third movie without her, “I will be the one in the audience cheering them on.”
