Sarah Jessica Parker knows plot of third “Sex and the City” movie

Hollywoodnews.com: Get ready for more “Sex.”

As rumors swirl about a potential “Sex and the City” prequel (with younger actresses Selena Gomez and Blake Lively), Sarah Jessica Parker reportedly has told Parade magazine that she knows the plot of a third “Sex” movie, but didn’t go so far as to confirm it.

“I know what the story is. It’s a small story, but I think it should be told. The question is, what’s the right time to tell it?” Parker said.

THR weighed in on the story, quoting “Sex” veterans who downplayed the prequel idea.

“My Carrie Bradshaw started at 33, and I took her to 43,” said longtime showrunner Michael Patrick King, who directed the two feature films. “I didn’t even want to know who Carrie Bradshaw’s parents were because I thought she only existed in Manhattan. So for me, the idea of going backwards and making her less evolved … is something that I don’t imagine doing.”

Kristin Davis also shot down the idea of the prequel, saying, “We’re us and we’ve discussed our history in the show already so for all of our fervent fans who listen to what we say, why would we rewrite that? And then have like different people with our names? It’s kind of freaky.”

But for a third “Sex” movie, Davis adds, “I’m always hopeful and I always believe there’s another story to tell because these are these women’s lives so why wouldn’t there be another chapter. … [But] I don’t know if it will happen.”
