And just like that, over seven years of rumors, chatter and maybes came to a screeching halt. Sarah Jessica Parker confirmed to Extra that though the project had been in the works, it was no longer happening.
“It’s over,” the star, 52, told Extra on Sept. 28. “We’re not doing it.”
“I’m disappointed," she continued. "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,” she continued.

Kristin Davis Speaks
Davis also spoke out about the now-shelved project, echoing Parker’s feelings of disappointment that it will never come to fruition.
“It is true that we are not going to be able to make a 3rd film,” she wrote on Instagram. “I wish that we could have made the final chapter, on our own terms, to complete the stories of our characters. It is deeply frustrating not to able to share that chapter (beautifully written by MPK) with all of you. So we will just have our memories, but please know that all of the love and support for us through the years is felt by us and we are so grateful for all of you!”

"She Could've Been Nicer"
Cattrall hit back once again at claims that she was being a “diva” over the third film during an interview with Piers Morgan on his show Life Stories, which airs on ITV on the U.K.
“It’s quite extraordinary to get any kind of negative press about something that I’ve been saying for almost a year of ‘no’ that I’m demanding or a diva,” Cattrall said. “The answer was always no and a respectful, firm, no.”
“I never asked for any money, I never asked for any projects,” she added. “To be thought of as some kind of diva is absolutely ridiculous.”
She also talked about her co-star, Parker, saying that she “could have been nicer” about the process.
“And this is really where I take to task the people from Sex and the City and specifically Sarah Jessica Parker in that I think she could have been nicer.”

"We've Never Been Friends"
Cattrall’s true feelings about her costars were revealed when the Piers Morgan interview finally air and she admitted that she had never been close with the other three ladies.
“We’ve never been friends,” she said. “We’ve been colleagues and in some way, it’s a very healthy place to be.”
The actress also revealed that the show’s hard filming schedule is what kept her from having children.
“I thought to myself, ‘Wow, I have 19-hour days on this series. … My Monday morning would start at 4:45 a.m. and go to one or two in the morning. How could I possibly continue to do that, especially in my early 40s?’ ” she said. “And then I realized what a commitment it was just to the [IVF] procedures. I thought, ‘I don’t think it is going to happen.’ It was the first moment — it was extraordinary — in my life where I thought, ‘Maybe I’m just not going to do this.’ ”
