I was hoping we'd get a new adventure for my girl Carrie and her bffs, but I haven't heard anything lately. So what's the 411?
The well pretty much ran dry with the second movie. If there's a God, Carrie Bradshaw and her Manolo's are gone for good.
Part three is called SATC: Assisted Living.
I hope not, R1. It's because the second movie was such a disappointment that I'd like to see a third one be made, just so the franchise can go out on a high note (or at least a higher note than the last movie).
Same for "The X-Files," because I thought their last film was a bust, too.
I thought Sarah's third event was the Belmont Stakes.
Yeah I hope they make it too. Hubris is what killed the second one. Maybe if they make a quieter, more accessible movie (like the show was in its earlier seasons), it'll be better received.
Well, since the second movie was scraped off some shitheap, I wouldn't be surprised if they scraped the third one off too.
SJP was completely cut out of the Linda Lovelace biopic!!!!
OP, please die in a grease fire and take SATC with you.
Last week, SJP was hinting at the possibility of a third movie. If it happens (which I doubt), they need to do it without Michael Patrick King, who managed to kill a franchise that still had a lot of good will.
Paula Abdul, the gay manservant
I love threads with OPs like this one.
Well, SJP claims that there is a story "that needs to be told" so it may just happen. Why a fictional story NEEDS to be told is anyone's guess.
fuck these white bitches
Why doesn't Matthew leave her? We should start a kickstarter campaign to by him his own house.
They should just have them move in together, and then redo one of the Golden Girls episodes and pad it to an hour and a half. Charlotte brings a gun into the house after they're robbed? Samantha gets a lesson that beauty is skin deep after she dates a blind guy? Newly divorced Carrie begins fucking a married gym teacher? Miranda dates Mickey Rooney?
SJP desperately wants a third movie simply because she has no career without SATC.
Her film and TV career (GLEE guesting notwithstanding) is basically over. The big endorsements and fashion deals are over. She's well into her 40s. And SJP likes money. A lot. Even more than she likes being Carrie.
She must be pissed at the renewal of THE CARRIE DIARIES, a dumb but harmless show that makes SJP an even bigger footnote to SATC.
thanks for that insider scoop, r17. I'm sure you know all about it. (eye roll)
I agree with the poster who said they need to pan MP King. They should have gotten rid of him after that abomination of a first movie. Why they gave him another chance is beyond me. This was a series that was so good when it was good, and in fact some of those older episodes are still fantastic, even now.
oh lord it is the eye roll troll at r18. I hate the eye roll troll.
"Scrapped," OP, not "scraped."
I hope ssho! I want to sshing another hit sshong like "All the Sshingle Ladiessh"! It wassh sshuch a sshcreaming sshuccshessh the firssht time!
Oh, great. The "two p's not one p" troll at r20 is here. Get a life!
SJP's face is getting too hard for film, they are going to have to put vaseline over the lens for these "ladies"
Jason Lewis aged far worse than any of the ladies. He looks like 40 miles of bad road.
That's what coke will do to you, R24.
What the hell happened with Part II? It's as if the writers wanted revenge on SJP for some reason. Like they deliberately tried to make the worse movie they possibly could.
How do you make a movie about a show that was so NY-centric and stick half of the scenes in ABU DHABI???
Also it was completely devoid of any of the heart that made SatC semi-enjoyable. Towards the end of the series it became more of a designer label laden, name dropping puff piece but I think the movies could have been so much better if they decided to refocus on the feeling of the first three seasons of the show which are considered the best ones by most fans.
Maybe they can scrape Kim Catrall's uterus and fashion a story from that.
R18, why the hostility toward R17's post?
It makes sense and accurately describes the life faced by SJP and many of her contempories.
Stardom does not last at the same level forever, they just have to deal with the reality.
They've already done it.... Menopause, the Musical.
[quote]SJP was completely cut out of the Linda Lovelace biopic!!!!
They decided to end the movie in 1980, which was before Lovelace met Steinem.
SJP is really hated here, but I've always liked her. In everything from Square Pegs to all those movies she did before Sex and the City (LA Story, Ed Wood, First Wives Club, Hocus Pocus, etc.).
In this economy, who really cares about these ladies? Charlotte always had money and who could care about her nanny worries? Carrie married someone with money as well; god forbid Carrie has a kid, who would be played by a purse. Miranda just needs to leave Steve behind in the shower and we can take that story from there. Samantha probably lost her job and her money so she wouldn't be able to afford to hire/marry a younger man who would just cheat on her anyway.
What is Darren Star's role in this? What happened to him?
They'll make another movie even if it's a prequel or re-imagination or animated version or whatever. The brand name is too valuable to leave sitting on a shelf. It must be exploited to the max, every penny wrenched out of it. It's the American way.
r31. SJP is terrific in Ed Wood, likewise Johnnie Depp.
Seriously? There probably will be another movie, but not in the theatres.
A feature with 4 women hovering on one side or another of menopause is just too risky. Don't forget, I DON'T KNOW HOW SHE DOES IT died violently at the box office. SJP simply cannot "carry" a feature film (hee!).
I predict that the next project is in the works (drumroll)... for HBO. Where it all started. And if HBO passes, they will take it to Lifetime, or Style, or E!, or elsewhere on cable.
But it will probably happen.
Am I the only one who enjoyed both movies?
Darren Star made the most money of anybody from SATC. He just sold his apartment in the Trump Building on CPW for over Fourteen Million and lives in a mansion in Bel Air, a house in East Hampton and a place in Palm Springs. He's doing just fine.
r37: I did, too!
If they can make movie after movie about boring menopausal men, I don't see what the problem is with doing another SATC movie.
Wow R24, you weren't kidding! I don't know when this picture was taken but I never would have thought it was the same person!
They should bring Darren Starr back for the third film.
All the ladies have moved to Cabot Cove. Their story lines revolve around their various nieces and nephews. Every once in a while they will meet for a nice early bird special at the diner or perhaps at the local beauty shop to discuss their various friends and relatives or that hot doctor, Seth Hazlett.
[quote]Well, SJP claims that there is a story "that needs to be told" so it may just happen. Why a fictional story NEEDS to be told is anyone's guess.
Samantha's Cancer returns. Not a dry eye in the house.
[quote]How do you make a movie about a show that was so NY-centric and stick half of the scenes in ABU DHABI???
There had to be some rich A-rabs with more money than brains backing that shitstorm, under the condition they shot a good chunk of it there. There can be no other reason.
The second one was unnecessarily racist and homophobic. The first one was okay. I wouldn't mind a third one. But I hope they don't dumb down the movie in order to appeal to non fans of the original show. It seems the movies were made for those that didn't necessarily watch the TV show.
On TV Guide channel they had a countdown of the top TV characters and Carrie Bradshaw was I believe #1 (or #2). I liked her in the beginning of the series but she just became so narcissistic I couldn't imagine anyone would want to be her friend.
I think bringing the ladies back to the relationship and having one of them die is the last story that should be told. I think they need to downplay all the high fashion nonsense, it doesn't work at this stage in time. It was fine for it's day. I would like to see a story based in reality that deals with the end of a great friendship. We have all faced that in our lifetime and I think seeing these women go through it would make up for the second movie fiasco. MPK totally ruined that story. SJP was a driving force in the first movie but I'm not sure what happened the second time around.
As for her endorsements drying up, she is currently in Manila to open a high end mall to the tune of $2M. Her endorsments may be dryed up here in the US but she is adored internationally and that would be her target audience for SATC3. She is no dummy.
SJP seems likes a decent gal. Her 2 little girls are adorable, I have seen some pics of her walking with them and she dresses them so cute. I have always liked her on talk shows, but I think Carrie got so annoying that it rubbed off on our feelings for SJP since she was so involved in the show.
" I think they need to downplay all the high fashion nonsense, it doesn't work at this stage in time."
Oh I don't know about that...
I think SJP made a gigantic amount of money producing that show & the movies so she's not hurting...but R37 & R39 I enjoyed both movies too...I didn't like the Abu Dabi digression but I think they were trying to make some sort of "I Am Woman!" statement with the whole liberating the Arab wives thing and the oppression of women in that culture (not a racist remark, just the truth)...but I think that was kind of overreaching for SATC...it just didn't quite work but I still had a good time with the characters.
Not sure how I feel about SATC 3...who wants to see Samantha straining anymore to hold on to her beauty and youth?
It depresses me a little, like let's just let those great characters live safely in the past and not try to recapture something that is a decade gone by. Even watching the DVDs it's remarkable how dated it is, and how laughable it is to me now, unemployed a year, to spend $400 on a pair of shoes.
Oh what the hell am I babbling about?
r51 lol...I stand corrected!
r50 here again, also since SJP was so involved in the show I found Carrie being so irresistable to men unrealistic and made me think SJP may think too highly of herself.
R54 Carrie was a double bagger but she had a rocking body that she liked to show off. Consider her the Michael Phelps of cable sitcom heroines.

What makes you think anyone's ego got SMALLER since then?
