While it’s highly unlikely Sarah Jessica Parker will have anything to do with film adaptations of The Carrie Diaries, the actress hasn’t given up hopes of playing her Sex & The City character again. Talking to MTV at Cannes, Parker explained that “there is perhaps one more small, important story to tell” about the modern-day Carrie Bradshaw, she said. “Whether or not we choose to do that and when we choose to do that remains, obviously, the unknown, but it’s nice to ponder.” Actually, after Sex & The City 2, there a lot of people who’d rather ponder anything else.
As for the aforementioned, nothing-to-do-with-her prequel (which would have Blake Lively playing Carrie if producer Michael Patrick King got his way), Parker was equally diplomatic. “Obviously, I feel proprietary in the best possible way about that entire franchise as it were, but I think there are lots of talented storytellers and obviously lots of talented actors who might be a part of it. I think, like anything, you base your opinion on material and content, and I think that would be the only way for any of us to have an opinion.” After all, could it really be any worse than SATC2?
