You know this is subtle shade directed towards the creator of Not Kim Cattrall’s Next Best Friend Race. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, videographic cock blocker Sarah Jessica Parker expressed her many thoughts on her most famous work – Sex and the City. She feels that the show didn’t age that well. And no, she didn’t mean that because,by the last movie, Industrial Light and Magic had been hired to attempt to make the cast not look their ages.
“You couldn’t make it today because of the lack of diversity on screen,” the Divorce actress said of the HBO show’s four white leads at the Deauville Film Festival, where she was on hand for the premiere of her new film Here and Now (formerly titled Blue Night). “I personally think it would feel bizarre.”
SJP feels that, with the entertainment industry’s new focus on diversity in casting, the show would look like evil mayonnaise if it was made today. And don’t you dare think of a REBOOT, bitch, SJP managed not to verbalize.
And now that the third movie based on the hit HBO show has been scrapped, marking the end of the franchise, the producer also pooh-poohed the idea of a reboot. “I don’t know that you could do it with a different cast,” she said. “I think that’s radical and interesting, but you can’t pretend it’s the same.”
She continued to damn the idea of a reboot with faint praise
after which she ditched the interviewer to call up HBO in a rage and threatened to sue them and take their children if they dared reboot the show.
“It wouldn’t be a reboot as I understand it,” she continued. “If you came back and did six episodes, you’d have to acknowledge the city is not hospitable to those same ideas. You’d look like you were generationally removed from reality, but it would be certainly interesting to see four diverse women experiencing NYC their way. … It would be interesting and very worthwhile exploring, but it couldn’t be the same.”
They couldn’t reboot the show. Even if they somehow managed to get Kim Cattrall on the same set as her mortal enemy, SJP would probably demand a first script rewrite in which Carrie Bradshaw sat at her window with her laptop and mused “I couldn’t help but wonder ‘what do women want in a relationship and what would happen if Samantha were to tragically die in a freak Hitachi wand electrocution accident?‘”
