The HBO television series spawned an initial feature film in 2008, followed by Sex and the City 2 in 2010.
Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon told Digital Spy earlier this year that another film is entirely down to writer-director Michael Patrick King, but Davis has appeared more optimistic in a new interview.
"I don't think [a third film] is a pipe dream, there is discussion," Davis told Haute Living.
"People talk about it amongst the people who are the players, but I don't know if it will come together. It would be very exciting if it did."
She added: "I'm going to have a little talk with Cynthia the next time I see her!"
CBS's legal and political saga reached its 100th episode this week with a typically outstanding hour of television. So why isn't it considered one of the greats?
What does quality Us television look like? Typically, any list would include at least one of the following shows: Mad Men, Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Homeland, Boardwalk Empire. Before these shows become box-set fodder, or become available for streaming on Netflix and iTunes, they are broadcast on premium cable channels. The idea of paying for "quality" television is entrenched (HBO itself means "Home Box Office", after all) and these shows, with their high production values and often slow-moving plots given space and time to breathe, are the best examples of it. But for the last four years – and five seasons – one of the best dramas on television has been on CBS, a basic network channel with an average viewer age of 57. The show is The Good Wife. »

The Good Wife celebrated its 100th episode last night with “The Decision Tree.” (Read the full recap here.) But if you haven’t yet seen the episode, stop reading now. Spoilers ahead! In the case of the week, a former client of Alicia’s (Juliana Margulies) had bequeathed her $12 million. She faced Will (Josh Charles) in court over the validity of the will. Meanwhile, Florrick/Agos prepared for their holiday party. And what started as a feeble gathering turned in to the event of the season—all thanks to Peter’s (Chris Noth) promised attendance. Eli (Alan Cumming) tried to »

While notable when a show reaches 100 episodes, it's a landmark for it to also be at its finest point, as is "The Good Wife."
CBS' compelling drama marks its 100th episode Sunday, Dec. 1, and its makers allowed Zap2it a rare set visit during that taping. This was just after the series-changing episode when Alicia Florrick and Cary Agos (Julianna Margulies, Matt Czuchry) were fired.
Starting their own firm revitalized the show. Though set in Chicago, it's created in an industrial section of Brooklyn, where quiet efficiency prevails. However at Florrick/Agos, which resembles a forgotten municipal department, there's the frantic chatter of worry.
In the 100th episode, Alicia expects to meet with the acerbic David Lee (Zach Grenier). Instead, Colin (Jason O'Mara) arrives, explaining Alicia's former partner "would rather negotiate with the devil. Me? I don't care who I negotiate with."
Colin foolishly expects her to sign without reading her exit contract, »
If last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live were an edition of The Hunger Games, then host Josh Hutcherson would have been one of those poor kids who dies in the melee outside the Cornucopia — just minutes after the Games begin.
I’m not trying to imply that Hutcherson bombed. Quite the opposite is true: he had the sort of on-camera ease that any first-time host would envy, never visibly suffering from nerves or being too obvious about reading cue cards. The problem is that after Hutcherson’s monologue, he largely faded into the background, playing a succession of »

Bryan Zuriff says in court papers he is back to work on the Showtime series after briefly resigning to protect it from negative publicity as he faces a year in prison for his role in an online gambling ring tied to the Russian mob.
On November 25, Bryan Zuriff, an executive producer on Showtime's Ray Donovan, will learn if he'll have to spend time in prison after pleading guilty for his role in a high-stakes sports betting business.
In advance of his sentencing, Zuriff has written a letter to New York judge Jesse Furman that begs for mercy and calls the day he was arrested "the biggest wake-up call of my life." And Zuriff isn't the only one asking for leniency. Court documents obtained by The Hollywood Reporter reveal that a number of Hollywood power players -- including Knocked Up director Judd Apatow, Lone Survivor director Peter Berg and Ray Donovan »

Mary-Kate Olsen and Olivier Sarkozy were happy to sing to each other at a concert in NYC on Thursday night. One half of America's favorite twins sat with her Frenchman and enjoyed cocktails and a blues performance by Ronnie Wood and Mick Taylor, a current and former member of the Rolling Stones respectively, at The Cutting Room. Chris Noth, who owns the club, was also on hand to introduce the rock stars to the audience. Mary-Kate, 27, and Olivier, 44, have been dating since May 2012 and are still very much in sync. The two embraced each other for some adorable Pda throughout the concert and at one point tightly wrapped their arms around each other while seemingly belting out the lyrics. As the two lovebirds focused on the stage, Oliver held Mary-Kate close, only letting go to stand up and give the iconic musicians applause. Mary-Kate and Olivier are no strangers to »

The Good Wife, Season 5, Episode 6: “The Next Day”
Written By Leonard Dick
Directed By Michael Zinberg
Airs Sundays at 9pm Est on CBS
The game’s afoot this week as Lockhart/Gardner and Florrick/Agos actively compete over a case, Marilyn Garbanza trails Peter’s ethical lapses, and Will works to undermine a potential partnership deal for the firm that walked out from under him. “The Next Day” plays out the early days of the aftermath from “Hitting the Fan” and while it is extremely effective at depicting the next steps, it is often clear this is an episode more committed to establishing a new status quo than one that has an agenda all its own.
There are things that are to be expected in the fall out of last week. Will has a new, young girlfriend with whom he can sex away his feelings (though, honestly, I am »

Chris Noth wasn't the only one who was told to watch his "Big" figure on Sex and the City. E! News can report that yet another main actor was told by producers to shed a few pounds while filming the iconic HBO hit, and it wasn't Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Cynthia Nixon or Kristin Davis. It was John Corbett! The Carrie Diaries executive producer Amy B. Harris (who also worked on Satc) confesses that producers did have a little talk with Carrie Bradshaw's two best-known suitors: Corbett (Aiden) and Noth (Mr. Big). "We told Corbett to lose weight between seasons three and four," Harris recalls. "When we talked about whether or not we wanted to »
It wasn't just fans of "The Good Wife" who were left awed by Sunday's "Hitting the Fan."
"I felt very grateful to be a part of a show that in its fifth season was putting out such a complicated, complex show that people were reacting to in such a positive way," Margulies says. "It's rare to have these moments in the fifth season of a show. It's rare. It felt like a whole new show."
Margulies chats during a break on the Brooklyn set, where the cast is filming the 10th episode. It's clear that Florrick/Agos is up and running, though it's not the sleek operation Lockhart/Gardner was.
All too often when an established series tries a major change, the reaction is that it jumped the shark, and »
Just call it The Do-Good Wife. Julianna Margulies and the cast and crew of The Good Wife teamed up with St. Bernard Project - a non-profit organization that helps disaster victims repair the extreme damage to their homes - donated $77,185 to the charity and rolled up their sleeves to do some hands–on work. "All of us on the east coast remember that terrible day and the aftermath of its devastation," said Margulies, 47, standing with costars Chris Noth and Josh Charles outside of Sandy victim Margaret McNulty's home in Rockaway Park, N.Y., on Saturday. "One year later communities are still suffering. »

"Hitting the Fan," the fifth episode of the The Good Wife's fifth season, is the culmination of storylines months and even years in the making: Peter Florrick (Chris Noth), the Chicago D.A. whose Spitzerian fall from grace forced his wife, Alicia (Julianna Marguilies) to make use of her long-dormant law degree, is now installed in the governor's mansion, and Alicia has accumulated the professional confidence to strike out on her own, leaving her managing partnership at Lockhart Gardner to start a new firm with her erstwhile rival Lockhart Gardner associate Cary Agos (Matt Czuchry). That in turn would seem to mark a definitive end to Alicia's on-again/off-again affair with Will Gardner (Josh Charles), whose righteous fury at Alicia's betrayal makes a future rekindling of passions substantially unlikely.But "Hitting the Fan" is also a surprisingly good jumping-on place for the curious, and summarizes many of the traits »

Let them not eat cake! They don’t have time because they’re busy giving back to the community. Instead of the traditional cake-cutting ceremony to mark their milestone 100th episode, the cast and crew of The Good Wife partnered with St. Bernard Project to rebuild homes. Today is the one-year anniversary of super storm Sandy, and the Good Wife team visited the Rockaways, an area of Queens in New York, to help rebuild the damaged homes. The show’s Juliana Margulies, Josh Charles, Chris Noth, Matt Czuchry, Archie Panjabi, Zach Grenier, and creators Robert and Michelle King were all there to help out. »

In 1972—before the internet, before the adult film explosion—Deep Throat was a phenomenon: the first scripted adult theatrical feature film, featuring a story, some jokes, and an unknown and unlikely star, Linda Lovelace (Seyfried). Escaping a strict religious family, Linda discovered freedom and the high-life when she fell for and married charismatic hustler Chuck Traynor (Sarsgaard). As Linda Lovelace, she became an international sensation—less centerfold fantasy than a charming girl-next-door with an impressive capacity for fellatio. After struggling to break free from Traynor whose endless abuse nearly killed her, Linda made it her life’s mission to fight violence against women. »
Chris Noth, The Good Wife and Sex and the City star, appeared on HuffPost Live last week and weighed in with his thoughts on the government shutdown. Noth said that conservative members of Congress provoked a government shutdown, in part, because of racism. He tweeted earlier that tea party members are motivated to this course “mostly because our president is black” and they “should be horsewhipped.” »

Appearing on HuffPost Live to talk about World Food Day, he admitted: "I love food."
However, Noth admitted that his enjoyment of culinary delights led to him being asked to shed a few pounds.
"That reminds me of a story from when we were doing the movie of Sex and the City," he said. "[Producer] Michael Patrick King came up to me and said, 'Listen to me, dude - we're not calling you Mr Big because of the size of your stomach, so go lose that before we start shooting'."
Noth didn't appear too hurt by the comments as he laughed while telling the story, before shooting down host Marc Lamont Hill's suggestion that he is a sex symbol.
"I don't think so, but you're being very kind," he joked.
The 58-year-old actor said that when they were filming the movie of the hit series, Michael Patrick King came up to him and said that his character was not called "Mr.Big" due to the size of his tummy, Us Magazine reported.
Noth added that he was told that before the filming starts, he should go and lose the extra weight. (Ani) »

The 58-year-old essayed Mr. Big in the movie and was paired with actress Sarah Jessica Parker.

There have been many tales of actresses who have been told to lose weight to get a role, but that doesn't mean guys don't deal with the same sort of pressure sometimes. Chris Noth, who starred as Mr. Big on "Sex and the City" says a director confronted him before the show's movie continuation.
Noth, who also starred on "Law & Order" and "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," was being interviewed by HuffPo when the topic came up. "[Director] Michael Patrick King came up to me and said, 'We're not calling you Mr. Big because of the size of your stomach, so go lose that before we start shooting'," the actor recalls.
Chris took it all in stride, as he admits in the interview he loves food and eating. By the time the movie rolled around, he was back in true Mr. Big form and even played the role again in the movie's sequel. »
