Sex And The City 3 rumours have been coming in thick and fast in the past year with us SATC superfans taking every piece of vaguely related news as a sign that the movie might be in the works. And it looks like we’re not the only ones who want to see it happen.
Candace Bushnell, the lady who started it all, has spoken out about how she would, “Like to see those women on the screen again,” but that she really isn’t in control of that. Although she would love a third movie to be made, it’s not her that needs to be convinced.
Candace went on, “A couple of years ago, I thought they would do a third movie but hearing what I’ve heard from the other actors, I think they probably wouldn’t.”
Sob. That doesn’t sound very promising. This isn’t the first time our hopes of another film have been dashed either. Earlier this year, Sarah Jessica Parker posted this Instagram snap with the caption:
“Well. I guess the cat’s out of the (little brown) bag. As usual, we will keep you posted on every detail as we are able. I’m under strict gag order until then. XX, Sj”
What accompanied this very cryptic caption was a snap of SJP in a white dress, gold courts, sunnies and a Bloomingdales bag in front of a crowd of fans. While we can’t be absolutely sure she was kitted out in her Carrie Bradshaw uniform, our wild imaginations believe this was confirmation of a third film.
But it wasn’t long before Warner Bros. studio shot down the rumours, telling E News: ‘The post is not in relation to the Sex and the City property.’
To make matters even worse, Sarah Jessica herself then took to her shoe line’s Instagram account to explain what her cryptic post really meant.
‘Pinch me, I’m dreaming. After months and months of sworn secrecy, I can finally shout the news from the rooftop. Or even better, from the iconic @bloomingdales awning. Welcome to New York, @sjpcollection. You’re going to love it here. Finally, a permanent home in NYC. Ps. Forgive me for any previous misunderstandings. Twenty lashes with a wet noodle. Yours forever, Sj x,; she wrote alongside a pic that shows her perched on Bloomingdales 59th Street store.
Oh, so it was actually just that she was bringing her shoe line to Bloomingdales?! And NOT that SATC3 is on its way?! Devastated.
This news comes after months of speculation that a movie may well be in the works. Back in October, SJP and co-star Kristin Davies entered into a very telling Twitter conversation where SJP wrote, “You hear the news?” and Kristin responded, “You let me know when we can celebrate.”
And just a few weeks later, Sarah Jessica Parker posted a snap of the two actresses cuddling up on the red carpet, gushing,
“It’s been such a long time since I had a chance to pose with this gorgeous woman. It was just like old times last night.”
Since it doesn’t look like a film will be happening any time soon, why not join us while we remember the standout ‘Sex And The City’ style moments.
