CHICAGO – Fans that were excited for the possibility of a third “Sex and the City” film may be disappointed at the news the movie will be put on hold. However, the fix to see Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda could still be filled.

Rumor has it that “Sex and the City” will be returning to television sometime in the future. Producers met in Hollywood last week to discuss the plan for making the new show. “Sex and the City,” which had six seasons of episodes on HBO as well as two feature length films, was well on the way to the production of a third movie when this news broke that the film is being trashed for a return to TV.

The third film was supposed to be the story of the beginnings of the four main girls. As Sarah Jessica Parker and the other women who played the characters have obviously gotten older, the movie was going to recast the four characters with younger actresses. Rumors that swirled around the project said that Elizabeth Olsen (“Martha Marcy May Marlene”) was going to play Carrie, Blake Lively (“Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” “The Town”) would be Samantha, Selena Gomez (“Monte Carlo”) would play Charlotte, and Emma Roberts (“It’s Kind of a Funny Story”) would portray Miranda.

While the new television show has not been defined as a back story or a continuing of the narrative already in place, a source close to The Daily Mail said that the plan is to do the television show before a third movie, and that Sarah Jessica Parker will be producing the new show.

The source also said that Parker had been worried about making a third film after the disappointment from the second film, but that she is all on board for a return to television for the show.
