Sarah Jessica Parker is singing a different tune about a possible “Sex and the City” movie.
The actress, who currently stars on HBO’s “Divorce,” told Time that she thinks it’s time to move on to new endeavors and leave the hit series and her character Carrie Bradshaw behind.
“The last movie came out in 2010,” she said. “It was 13 years of my life, give or take -- how better to have spent a career? And now it’s time for me to do something else.”
The actress’s statement comes a couple of days after she was quoted as saying that “there’s a possibility” that a third “Sex and the City” will happen. Parker also said at the time that she’s quite confident that the project will happen because none of her co-stars have decided to not be part of it.
Parker also said in an appearance on the “Today” show that she and director Michael King had already planned what the story will be about should the project be greenlit. King also told Entertainment Weekly that he believes there is one more story left to be told and that he is only waiting for fans to ask for it to be told.
“It’s all really about the stories, and if you actually think you have something left to say that would make it exciting and worthwhile for the fans’ time, that’s really the question,” King said. “It’s really like, is there enough or more to say that would justify people risking seeing their favorite characters again? And I think there’s one chapter left.”
While the project is still up in the air, Parker assures fans that it being shelved at the moment has nothing to do with her relationship with other members of the cast. There have been longstanding rumors that she and Kim Cattrall did not get along well while they were filming “Sex and the City,” which ran from 1998 to 2004.
