Last week we learned that plans for that third Sex and the City film had been dumped, because Kim Cattrall wanted nothing to do with it, thus breaking the hearts of Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis. The Daily Mail says that Kim Cattrall recently talked about the SATC 3 drama during an interview with Piers Morgan for ITV’s Life Stories. And it sounds like Sarah and Kim won’t be sipping cosmos together any time soon.
One of the alleged reasons for why SATC 3 isn’t happening was that Kim was acting like a diva and “playing the victim” a few weeks before principal photography was set to begin. Kim says she never shut down production with diva demands, like asking Warner Bros. to finance other film projects for her. She reiterated that she never intended to work on the film. According to Kim, she repeatedly turned down producers almost a year ago, and never once implied she was interested.
Now Kim is pissed that sources are leaking stories about her playing hardball, and that a certain co-star keeps squeezing lighter fluid onto this fire.
“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. 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.”
Later on, when asked why she thinks Sarah Jessica Parker wasn’t playing nice, Kim said: “I don’t know what her issue is, I never have.”
Kim also claims that she’s 61 and no longer interested in playing the constantly-horny publicist Samantha Jones. And she wants SATC 3 to happen, just not with her. Kim suggests they replace her with someone else:
“It’s a great part. I played it past the finish line and then some and I loved it and another actress should play it, maybe they could make it an African American Samantha Jones or a Hispanic Samantha Jones? Or bring in another character. It can be another character. This is what I really believe that this franchise needs another point of view and this could be it.”
That plan sounds great, but it also has the huge potential to backfire hard. According to Kim, Sarah Jessica Parker has an “issue” with her and that she hasn’t been nice. If that’s really true, then I could see SJP replacing Kim and making it very clear she did it out of spite.
New Samantha: “Yes, it’s me – Samantha Jones, completely recovered from my full-body plastic surgery and a vocal transplant procedure. Uh…penis penis Viagra threesome sexy wink.”
Carrie: “Samantha, you look great! So much better than before. And your personality is better too. (Stares directly into the camera) What an amazing improvement, I hardly miss the old Samantha at all.”
