“I would go back,” Sarah Jessica Parker told the L.A. Times’ 24 Frames, while filming her newest project “I Don’t Know How She Does It”—another adaptation of a successful novel—in New York. “I think there’s one more story to tell. I know there is,” she said.
But whether she wants to step into Carrie’s Manolos again is one thing, and whether we’re willing to sit through another two hours of lavish spending and somewhat tired characters is another. Fact: The series itself is untouchable; it’s the gold standard when it comes to stories of single friends and their attempts at love, but after a lukewarm response to “Sex and the City 2,” is there much interest in seeing a third installment?
If your answer is yes, my advice is to tread with caution. Do you think you’d still be interested in Carrie and Co. in five years, a point in the distant future when Sarah believes she may be ready to revisit her most iconic character? With upcoming film roles (including a part in the mega-watt ensemble cast of “New Year’s Eve“) and a growing family, the 45-year old isn’t looking to make a third “SATC” film her first priority, but rather put it on the back burner. “I’d definitely tell that [third] story, and I know Michael would do it right. But maybe not now. Maybe in five years, you know?” she explained. In five years’ time, Charlotte and Miranda’s children will be trolling the shops along Fifth Avenue, and almost be old enough to date (Brady—don’t leave your friends around Aunt Samantha).
So if you’re interested in watching a third movie heavily rooted in tween fashions, parenting squabbles and perhaps Carrie’s regret at not having children (or surprise pregnancy and/or adoption?), this news should have you marking your calendar for 2016. Tell us what you think by voting in our poll!
