Kim Cattrall says no to
'Sex and the City' movie



Kim Cattrall said she didn't want any more Sex and the City, so that means her co-stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis won't be getting any either.

HBO representatives said Cattrall's refusal led the cable channel to drop the idea of a feature film based on the popular series.

"Kim felt fortunate to have enjoyed six wonderful years, both personally and professionally, playing Samantha on Sex and the City,"' said Cattrall spokeswoman Marvet Britto in a recent statement.

"She would have loved to have done the movie and made a deal to do the movie, but waited as long as possible with no script or start date and felt she had to take other offers that were presented to her after the hold period had passed."

Cattrall has instead signed on to shoot Ice Princess for Walt Disney Pictures.

The trade newspaper Variety reported this week that Cattrall wanted script approval and the same amount of money as Parker, which were rejected.
