Well, todays news told a different story. Jennifer Hudson, who played Louise, Carrie's personal assistant, hinted that there may be a third one in the works and SJP seems to have confirmed it as true on her twitter account.
Kristin tweeted SJP on Friday saying that she missed her co-star. SJP replied, 'Met too you! Heard the News? X. to which Kristin replied, 'Yyyeessssss... But I'm afraid to get TOO excited yet - You let me know when we can celebrate. XO'.
Fans were quick to respond to the tweet with their excitement.. SJP's response? 'Eating crow now!' and saying that she had been making a reference to the 'news' that had been 'zooming around'.
Throughout all the rumors, this is the first one that any of the cast have responded to and up until now, most believed a third one would never happen.
The sequel to the first movie didn't make huge waves at the box office in the US. With a $100 Million budget it didn't even break even in the States bringing in only $95,347,692. However internationally the movie brought in $288 million. Not bad, however it was a far cry from the $415 million the first film pulled in, which was made on a budget of $65 million. The financial outcome as well as the poor reviews of the movie seemed to solidify that there wouldn't be a third movie made, however if todays news is true, it seems that there has been a change of heart. In addition, director Michael Patrick King has always said there is 'one story left to tell'.
Whilst I did feel the story of the second movie was a lot weaker than the first, I personally still loved the movie. True die hard fans can't get enough of the fab four and the fashion lovers out there, if not dying over the script are salivating over the true feast of clothes that each episode and movie has brought. I still can't stop thinking about some of the stunning Halston Heritage dresses SJP wore in that movie. And that dress she wore to her dinner with Aidan... amazing.
If the rumors are true, I wonder what the final story will be? I'm sure the production budget will be more on the scale of the first movie as the studio will be more conservative on the financial forecast. But one thing's for sure, SJP shouldn't have any problems calling in favors with fashion houses and with Patricia Field's connections (who I'm guess will be brought on for the third) I'm sure the wardrobe won't suffer. Perhaps we'll even see some of SJP's shoe line sneak their way in!
Let's hope the rumors this time are true!! Stay tuned!
