Even though earlier rumors claimed there was a new Sex and the City movie in the works, the latest accounts claim that the popular franchise is changing directions and gearing up for a return to TV.
Tipped by an anonymous source, presumably close to the project, The Daily Mail reports that after unfavorable reception for the second SATC movie, the series creators are reluctant to bring the chick epic back on the big screen.
According to the tipster:
"Ultimately Darren Star – the man who created the hit series – will have the overall say, but everyone is agreed a TV show is the direction they want to take the franchise in. Sarah Jessica Parker will be producing. She was worried about doing another film after the bad reaction to the SATC2 movie, but a TV show is definitely something she wants to happen."
According to previous rumors, the third SATC movie was set to take place in the 80s and feature a twenty-something Carrie Bradshaw as the protagonist. The creators lined up Elizabeth Olsen to play the leading role, with Blake Lively (Samantha Jones), Selena Gomez (Charlotte York), and Emma Roberts (Miranda Hobbes) starring as Bradshaw's gal pals.
