In the past week, Sex and the City fans learned that a third movie was definitely not happening, per Sarah Jessica Parker (opens in new tab). But what might've been just the story of another movie not getting a long-promised sequel is heating up, with former costar Kim Cattrall putting Parker and the SATC franchise on blast.
In an interview (opens in new tab) with British TV personality Piers Morgans, Cattrall defended her choice to not participate in a third film, which she claims to have never signed onto. This goes against Parker's claim that the film was already in the works, as well as a DailyMailTV (opens in new tab) report that Cattrall eventually "torpedoed" the film with her "demands."
As Cattrall put it:
"And now, now at this very moment it’s quite extraordinary to get any kind of negative press about something that I’ve been saying for almost a year of 'no' that I’m demanding or a diva...I never asked for any money, I never asked for any projects, to be thought of as some kind of diva is absolutely ridiculous."
Specifically to Parker, she also added:
"And this is really where I take to task the people from Sex And The City and specifically Sarah Jessica Parker in that I think she could have been nicer. I really think she could have been nicer."
Cattrall also revealed that the four main SATC cast members have drifted apart in recent years:
"They all have children and I am 10 years older and since specifically the series ended I have been spending most of my time outside of New York so I don't see them. The common ground that we had was the series and the series is over."
Cattrall's focus now is on her own career, but she claims she would've been open to a behind-the-scenes dialogue about the third film, had it come (opens in new tab):
"And that's another thing that's really disappointing is that nobody ever picks up the phone and tries to contact you and say, 'How you doing?' That would have been the way to handle it
And usually what happens in a healthy relationship is that someone, or a transaction for a job in my business, is that someone says, 'Are you available?' and you say 'Yes' and here's the job and you say 'Yes, but thank you very much but I'm sort of over here right now but thank you very much,' and that person turns to you, and they say 'That's great, good luck to you, I wish you the best.'
That's not what happened here, this is, it feels like a toxic relationship."
This back-and-forth started with Cattrall disputing (opens in new tab) the initial report that she'd specifically derailed production with her "demands," sharing, "Woke 2 a @MailOnline 💩storm! The only 'DEMAND' I ever made was that I didn't want to do a 3rd film...& that was back in 2016":

Kristin Davis later shared her disappointment over the sequel's cancellation, writing as part of a length post on Instagram, " It is deeply frustrating not to able to share that chapter (beautifully written by [series creator Michael Patrick King] MPK) with all of you":
