Sarah Jessica Parker has confirmed that a third Sex and the City movie is definitely not in the cards, but Kim Cattrall is here to stop you from pointing the finger at her. 

“It’s over. We’re not doing it,” Parker told Extra on Thursday. The actress confirmed the movie based on the wildly successful HBO series had been green-lit, but apparently is not meant to be. 

“I’m disappointed. We had this beautiful, funny, heartbreaking, joyful, very relatable script and story. It’s not just disappointing that we don’t get to tell the story and have that experience, but more so for that audience that has been so vocal in wanting another movie.”

Sure, the second Sex and the City movie received an abysmal 13 per cent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but fans of Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte are a loyal bunch.

So what went wrong with the potential threequel? 

The Daily Mail reports production was close to starting this fall, until Kim Cattrall made her demands known. The website claims Parker, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon had all signed on, but Cattrall "demanded" Warner Bros. produce other movies she's developing if they wanted her to return to the franchise.  

The website cites an unnamed sources who says: "The only reason this movie isn't being made is because of Kim Cattrall. Everyone was looking forward to making this movie but Kim made it all about her, always playing the victim."

This is all news to Cattrall, however, who tweeted Friday that she woke up to the Daily Mail news, and that they don't have their facts straight.

"The only 'DEMAND' I ever made was that I didn't want to do a 3rd film....& that was back in 2016," she tweeted. Indeed, in June 2016, she told the Daily Record she felt the climate had changed and it wasn't the right time for more SATC.

"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," she said. "Everyone is doing their own thing and if it was going to happen, it would have happened by now."

And co-star Nixon was with her even before that!

"I think we had a wonderful ride. I think it's fine to let it go," she told The Hollywood Reporter back in 2012.

One person who doesn't think it's okay to let it go? Sia. 

The music superstar took to Twitter amid the news to offer herself up to play Samantha.
