Kim Catrall: “Sex and the City 3” Won’t Work in This Bad Economy


L-R: Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, Kristin Davis and Kim Cattrall at “Sex and the City 2” premiere in 2010; Claire R Greenway/Getty Images(NEW YORK) –Sorry, Sex and the City Fans: you likely won’t see Carrie, Charlotte, Samantha and Miranda on the big screen ever again — or at least not until the economy turns around. 

In an interview with the U.K.’s Daily Record, Kim Cattrall said that in the six years since the girls appeared in theaters in Sex and the City 2, “the climate changed.” 

“To have four women talking about shopping trips and spending $400 on shoes when people are having trouble putting food on the table? It doesn’t mean we don’t need that, but I think the pendulum swung in a different direction,” noted Cattrall, who played the sexually voracious Samantha.

Logistics are also a challenge, the actress explained. “Everyone is doing their own thing,” adding, “if it was going to happen, it would have happened by now.

About her fan-favorite character, she noted — in a tres-Samantha turn of phrase — “I feel like I have completely ridden that horse and been completely satiated and satisfied.”

Cattrall seemed wistful about a third installment, however. “It could be fun, though,” she said, adding, “To say goodbye completely to Samantha would be pretty hard.”
