Michael Patrick King wants “Sex and the City 3″
As a rabid Sex and the City fan, I can say that I quite liked the first movie and did not hate the second – especially loved the reunion of Carrie and Aiden.
But because the second movie was so panned and did not gross as much as the first, Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte and my saucy Samantha were put into mothballs.
But they may be coming back for at least one more go-round on the big screen (the two movies followed six seasons on HBO).
Writer-director-executive producer Michael Patrick King tells Entertainment Weekly: “Sarah Jessica (Parker) and I both know what that final chapter is. 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 in my mind. There are other stories to tell and characters that haven’t even been written yet.”
King adds: “It’s a very interesting balance of zeitgeist and letting go and coming back and figuring out if you’re done or you’re not done. I listen to people a lot, actually. What I do know is that there’s interest, but with interest comes non-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. It’s really like, is there enough or more to say that would justify people risking seeing their favorite characters again? And I think there’s one chapter left.”
Here are some clips from the movies to get us excited all over again:
