Entertainment Weekly just interviewed Michael Patrick King and asked about a third Sex & The City movie. SJP recently told a magazine that she’d be open to it because there’s still a “chapter” to be told.
“Chapter” is a word that Michael Patrick King uses too. Is “chapter” a euphemism now for “I need money”?
“The great gift or riches or luck is that I worked on two shows that were so full that they spilled over into people’s lives and the characters were rounded enough that you could still wonder where they are.”
Actually, no. We’re good. Promise. No wondering here. None at all.
He goes on:
“Sarah Jessica and I both know what that final chapter is. That doesn’t mean it will or should be told, but I do think there’s one story left. Whether it ever happens is a whole other situation. But there’s four girls, and those girls are still in my mind. There are other stories to tell and characters that haven’t even been written yet.”
That remaining chapter is so f-cking obvious it actually doesn’t need to be told.
If, however, you wanted to give me a movie about Carrie and her parents, and grow their world beyond boyfriends and children, I might be open to discussion. But that’s not the story the MiniVan Majority is waiting for. They want maternity clothes and stilettos.
Or maybe in the third movie we’ll get to see them sh-t on another foreign country and disrespect the culture? Maybe this time, instead of an Asian baby being mute, it’ll be a black child instead. That’s when we’ll really get lucky. Diversity!
