Editorial: 'Sex and the City 3' the movie that will never be
If you are a "Sex and the City," fan no doubt you have read enough about the mudslinging between Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall. Here is a rundown, according to Sarah Jessica Parker (Carrie Bradshaw) "Sex and the City 3," would begin filming next month if it weren't for the demands Kim Cattrall was exacting on the production to come back to play Samantha Jones one more time. Recently, Kim Cattrall was interviewed by Piers Morgan and proclaimed that she has simply said, "No" to the invitations she has been given to reprise her role. She said she's played Samantha to then and back - and let's face it she has. Out all of the characters on "Sex and the City," Samantha's character was the most one-dimensional of all of the characters.
As a fervent fan of the franchise, I admit that the chance of a third film is chancy at best. The last film was just horrible, except for one scene, see below...
What I will miss most about the series finally coming to the end is the opportunity to see another performance by an actress that is beyond the mudslinging and that is Cynthia Nixon. Her portrayal of the Harvard educated lawyer Miranda was the most complex characters of the cast. And Miranda's character was the only character that had the depth of personality for the average fan of the series to truly relate to. Nixon just won a Tony for her performance on Broadway in "Little Foxes," and I dare say she is in the hunt for an Oscar - and I am looking forward to that day.
Here is one the examples of Cynthia Nixon's performance as Miranda Hobbs:
So, here's to the series that had women drinking cosmopolitans and hoping for the day when they could afford a pair of Manolo Blahniks. The series was much more about love and relationships than sex and it gave women the opportunity to voice their more intimate concerns. "Sex and the City" was a huge success but as many things there comes an end. Too bad that the end couldn't come with all those involved acknowledging the fact that the franchise brought them work, money and security - instead of a much of mud.
