Fans are nursing a heartbreak after the third edition of 'Sex and the City' movie was called off by its makers. A report on Mail Online recently stated that producer Warner Bros has decided to call off the project due to Kim Cattrall's excessive demands. It has been reported that the cast and crew of 'Sex and the City' were gearing up for the shoot this fall and the pre-production works were in full swing. "However Cattrall, 61, demanded they produce other movies she had in development or she wouldn't sign up for the project. Warner Bros refused to meet her demands and had to cancel the production," the report added. Actresses Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon were also signed up for the third instalment.
Well, this is nothing new to fans. News of a rift between Cattrall and her costars popped up ever since the show was aired on the television almost 20 years ago, but the cast and crew kept denying it. Even, there were reports that Catrall was unhappy with her paycheck when compared to her fellow stars. However, with Warner Bros calling off the franchise, the stars have now started expressing their views on the issue.
Recently, Extra caught up with Sarah Jessica Parker at the New York City Ballet Gala to clarify the rumours. "It's over... we're not doing it. I'm disappointed. We had this beautiful, funny, heartbreaking, joyful, very relatable script and story. It's not just disappointing that we don't get to tell the story and have that experience, but more so for that audience that has been so vocal in wanting another movie," the star, who was attending the event with her husband Matthew Broderick, explained.
Kristin Davis expressed her disappointment through an Instagram post.
Sources close to the production house has solely blamed Cattrall for the turnout. "The only reason this movie isn't being made is that of Kim Cattrall. Everyone was looking forward to making this movie but Kim made it all about her, always playing the victim," Mail Online quoted a source.
However, the actress straight away denied all the allegations through her tweet:
A section of her fans even claims that Cattrall has all the right to put forth her demands.
And there were tweets like this too:
'Sex and the City' was initially broadcasted as a television series from 1998 until 2004 on HBO. The show follows the lives of a group of four women—three in their mid-thirties and one in her forties—who, despite their different natures and ever-changing sex lives, remain inseparable and confide in each other. The show was transformed into a feature film in 2008, directed by Michael Patrick King.
