Sarah Jessica Parker Wants Sex and the City 3, Not a Prequel


Though the Sex and the City franchise was pronounced dead or presumed comatose after the second film's crash and burn, Sarah Jessica Parker is shooting for a trilogy. "I would go back," she told the L.A. Times. "I think there's one more story to tell. I know there is ... Maybe in five years, you know?" One story that she doesn't think needs to be seen, though, is a Sex and the City prequel; when unfounded online rumors spread that Blake Lively would take on the Carrie Bradshaw role in a flashback film, Parker was startled. "I was like, Wha-a-a-a-t?" she said. "I don't begrudge any 21-year-old the opportunity to tell their stories. They prove to us on an everyday basis that they're interesting. Even their narcissism is interesting. Even their inertia is interesting. Even their tonal speech patterns are interesting. But I don't think we can pretend to go back. It's creating two histories."
