The third movie's script was rumoured to be a good one - but it's not happening
There can have been no trilogy more contentious than that of Sex And The City 3 which - after much-hype and speculation - was unequivocally scrapped earlier this year. After the project was abandoned, rumours of a feud between two of its top stars - Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall - were rife.
The fab foursome will not be returning for a third film
Now, reported leaks of the script have surfaced providing another suggestion as to why the third movie was abandoned - the death of pivotal character, Mr Big, causing Kim, who played sex-mad PR boss, Samantha Jones, to want to pull out.

Parker was asked about her 'SATC' castmate's bid to oust Andrew Cuomo.
As if there needed to be more speculation that things might not be all rosy between the former stars of ‘Sex and the City’, Sarah Jessica Parker offered up a potentially awkward future moment by sounding extremely non-committal in endorsing her ex-colleague Cynthia Nixon’s run for political office.
Last week, Nixon made headlines by announcing that she would be running against Democratic incumbent Andrew Cuomo for the New York governorship in September’s primaries.
While that immediately drew a massive show of support from her ‘Sex and the City’ castmate Kristin Davis, however, Sarah Jessica Parker stopped short of a glowing endorsement in a new interview.
The actress had revealed her intention to run for New York Governor earlier in the week.
Former ‘Sex and the City’ star Cynthia Nixon had a fantastic clap-back ready for when she was called an “unqualified lesbian” by a supporter of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.
Nixon had surprised the world earlier this week when she announced that she was launched a campaign to secure the Democratic nomination for the governorship of New York, with the intention of unseating Cuomo in the upcoming primary in September this year.
In an interview the following day, one of Cuomo’s key supporters, former New York City council speaker Christine Quinn, who ran for governor back in 2013 and is likely to be a candidate once again, had reacted to the news of Nixon’s campaign by making a dismissive remark about her being an “unqualified lesbian”.

She is challenging Andrew Cuomo in the forthcoming democratic primary.

She might be best known for her role in 'Sex and the City', but there's more to this 51-year-old than you'd ever know. A proud, born and bred New Yorker, she is taking it upon herself to challenge current Governor Andrew M. Cuomo at the next Democratic primary, officially announcing her candidacy for Governor yesterday (March 19th 2018).

The third Sex and the City film has been given a firm no by the actress
Despite fan favourite Sex and the City sashaying off our screens well over a decade ago, drama, rumour and speculation continue to surround the ladies involved. After a hugely successful TV run, an enjoyable first film and a less-than-impressive second film, the possibility of a third film has been shut down completely.
Kim Cattrall said she has never wanted to be part of Sex and the City 3
Kim Cattrall - who played sexy Samantha Jones on the HBO show - has come out to deny that she had ever suggested she was willing to be involved with SATC3.

Thomas is feeling disillusioned by the bright city lights of New York following his college graduation. He's looking for something special, and he hopes he can find it in his friend Mimi Pastori. The only problem is, she only loves him as a friend and he wants more than that. That becomes the least of his worries, however, when he sees his father kissing a mysterious woman who, needless to say, isn't his mother. He follows the woman, who is named Johanna, and finds himself embroiled in a strange love triangle. Johanna seduces him and he becomes enchanted by her, though his feelings for her are obviously tainted by her involvement with his father. To make matters more complicated, Mimi is now seemingly jealous of Thomas' new love interest, and she has her own reservations about it. Thankfully, Thomas does at least have someone to talk to about it, but is his new neighbour W.F. Gerald really the best person to give him advice?
British writer-director Terence Davies (The Deep Blue Sea) is an expert at digging beneath the surfaces of his stories and characters. So it's especially intriguing to see him take on a biopic about the enigmatic American poet Emily Dickinson. Like her writing, the film has a moody, dry exterior that conceals a fiendishly sharp wit. It's also an unusually smart film, combining emotional resonance with brainy conversation, even as it moves at a glacial pace.
It's set in 19th century Massachusetts, where Emily (young Emma Bell, then Cynthia Nixon) grows up in a fiercely religious household. But then, everyone in this community is devout to the point of distraction, and no one knows what to do about Emily's unusually outspoken thoughts. The way she speaks about her faith horrifies her parents (Keith Carradine and Joanna Bacon), even though they raised Emily and her siblings Vinnie and Austin (Jennifer Ehle and Duncan Duff) to think for themselves. As Emily begins publishing her poems anonymously, she also challenges the role of women in this society, where they're expected to be little more than decoration. So it's no wonder that the plain-speaking new arrival Vryling (Catherine Bailey) catches her attention.
The film covers the final decades in Emily's life, punctuating scenes with her evocative, often disturbing poetry. Davies keeps the period details crisp and unfussy, using period photographs to great effect, such as in the striking sequence that traces the American Civil War. That said, the Dickinson family's life seems like little more than a sequence of nasty diseases and personal conflicts, which isn't easy to stick with. Thankfully, Nixon brings an alertness to Emily that catches the imagination, and her connection with Ehle's Vinnie is lively and engaging. These two women are inquisitive and sharp, in stark contrast to the gloomy people around them.

Stephen Elliot is a writer who's lost his way. He's previously had books fictional works published but his current case of writers block is causing disruption to his output. Another increasing problem with his creativity is a growing dependency of Adderall, an ADHD medication.

Whilst investigating the case, Elliott also finds himself going through a number of personal changes. His father, who pretty much abandoned his son as a young teenager, once again appears in his life and he's also introduced to a journalist called Lana Edmond which leads to a positive relationship for a man who mainly associates females with negative experiences.
Whilst trying to piece his new novel together, Elliott finds himself on a journey of self-discovery and must take his past to pieces to reveal exactly what's true and what's been fabricated in his mind.

The actress’ latest pic has got ‘SATC’ fans heart’s racing, but is Sarah really talking about returning as Carrie Bradshaw?
Could Carrie Bradshaw soon be back on the big screen? Well maybe, as Sarah Jessica Parker’s latest Instagram post has fuelled rumours that a third 'Sex and the City' movie has begun shooting. But before we get too excited there’s some detective work to be done, as realistically Parker’s post is more likely to be about her SJP shoe collection rather than stepping into Carrie’s Manolos for a third time.
Sarah Jessica Parker starred as Carrie Bradshaw in the HBO series and on the big screen.
Rumours regarding Sex And The City 3 started when the actress posted a picture of herself leaving Bloomingdales on New York’s Fifth Avenue carrying a ‘medium brown bag’ with the caption, ‘Well. I guess the cat's out of the (little brown) bag. As usual, we will keep you posted on every detail as we are able. I’m under strict gag order until then.’
