Sarah Jessica Parker broke Sex and the City fans’ hearts around the world last week when she confirmed a third film isn’t happening. The reason why is still a mystery, but tabloids—and, let’s face it, Willie Garson’s tweets—are implying Kim Cattrall is the reason.
The actress flat-out denied these claims—first via Twitter, and then during a very lengthy chat with Piers Morgan for his ITV series, Life Stories. Cattrall contends she never expressed interest in the film and that her answer was always a “firm ‘no'” when producers approached her about it.
This doesn’t mean she has hard feelings about it, though. In fact, Cattrall told Morgan producers should go forth with a third movie if it’s what they want.
“It’s a great part,” she said. “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?”
But this isn’t the only suggestion Cattrall has. Apparently, she’s also cool with Sex and the City just killing off Samantha Jones.
That’s what this Twitter interaction suggests, at least. Here’s what went down: In a tweet about the SATC drama, Perez Hilton wrote, “RT if you think #SexAndTheCity should make a third movie and just kill @KimCattrall’s character!” And Cattrall actually retweeted. Check it out for yourself, below:
Of course, it’s possible this retweet is an accident. Then again, that’s unlikely, because Cattrall probably would’ve deleted it by now. Either way, making a third movie without Samantha would be a big mistake. As Garson said in one of his less-shady tweets, their cast is “all for one and one for all.” The franchise simply can’t exist without Samantha.
