Looks like we won’t be seeing Carrie Bradshaw’s early adventures on the big screen.

Michael Patrick King, who directed both Sex and the City movies and acted as an executive producer on the series, told reporters during the Television Critics Association press tour today that he was not working on the rumored prequel film.

“My Carrie started at 33, and I took her to 43. I didn’t even want to know who her parents were. The idea of going back in time…and making her less evolved — the idea of going backward — is not something I’m interested in doing,” he said.

King was at the tour to promote Two Broke Girls, the series he co-created with comedienne Whitney Cummings.

    I’m sure he’d like to retroactively deny working on the sequel as well….

    • e4ia

      I still haven’t been able to bring myself to watch “Fishtar” yet…

      • Nancy

        The first movie was an absolute waste of time. It was like visual prozac.

      • Nancy

        I wouldn’t want my name on that.

  • Lizzie

    the way he destroyed the legacy of the tv show with those films (well mainly SATC2….the first film was ok i guess)…..im sure whoever is in charge of the prequel wouldn’t WANT him back.

  • Bendo

    Good. One more movie and then we can let Carrie go.

    • Nancy

      Unfortunately, these ladies should stick to horror films at this point.

  • Gina Vera

    They should do a prequel or a reboot but they need to wait a few more years. Besides does this guy own the rights or something? can’t they just make it with out him?

  • Mary Elizabeth

    Thank God! Not interested in a prequel. Just one more movie so Smith and Sam can reunite and then I’ll be set for life!

    • Nancy

      In reality, nobody would date these women in a million years, unless they were filthy rich.

  • scorpo

    Thank God this was never a good idea. I do hope they make a 3rd movie. I am at a loss as to why everyone disliked the second movie.

    • AcaseofGeo

      Scorpo, as a movie it was BAD. I therefore viewed it as “A night out with best friends: Doesn’t need to be the best or most-fun time, but its wonderful to see old friends again”. What was most sucky about this movie was these incredibly lucky fortunate ladies whine on and on about how hard their lives were.

  • Madox

    I love the characters and would definitely be up for a 3rd film with the 4 main actresses, but they really need to step it up a bit. The 2nd film wasn’t good – too much fluff and no substance.

    • Nancy

      Actually the characters themselves are empty and have no substance.

  • Scott

    All he is saying is he wants nothing to do with the film (feelings which are probably mutual)…..not that they aren’t making one…

    • Greg

      Because he wishes a semblance of credibility to continue working at some point again.

  • Juke Early

    The real reason is they’d have to use the original leads and can’t afford the CGI budget. . ..

  • Kelly

    The prequel books, at least the first one, is really cute. I’d love to see it made into a movie.
