Kim Cattrall Says She's 'Moving On' from Sex and the City and 'So Should You'

Kim Cattrall Says She's 'Moving On' from Sex and the City and 'So Should You'
Kim Cattrall has moved on from Sex and the City, and she thinks fans should too.

The 61-year-old actress responded to a fan on Twitter Friday who questioned her yet again about the dashed plans for Sex and the City 3 — which reportedly fell apart after Cattrall said she didn’t want to reprise her role as powerhouse PR maven Samantha Jones in the long-awaited sequel.

“So I’ve seen you doing interviews on ageism yet I see you on saying you’re too old to play Samantha?” the fan named Josh wrote Cattrall, questioning her on a recent comment she left on Instagram.

Exclusive: Why Kim Cattrall Seriously Doubts We’ll See 'Sex & the City 3'

Exclusive: Why Kim Cattrall Seriously Doubts We’ll See 'Sex & the City 3'
It's not that Kim Cattrall isn't game for a third Sex and the City, but the actress -- known for her Golden Globe-winning role as Samantha Jones on the hit HBO dramedy -- is nearly 20 years older than she was when the show first premiered in 1998.

Now 60, Cattrall says her interests lie in projects about women her age that aren't being made. Since 2014, she’s been co-producing and starring in the HBO Canada drama Sensitive Skin, playing Davina Jackson, a 50-something woman who struggles with aging. Cattrall also plays Emily French, a glamorous, well-off widow exploring the emotional cost of being a middle-aged woman in BBC One’s adaptation of the Agatha Christie short story The Witness for the Prosecution, premiering in the U.S. Monday, Jan. 30 on Acorn TV.

In a chat with Et, Cattrall opens up about taking on parts that "dispel" female convention, producing roles women that she says Hollywood isn't and the possibility

Kim Cattrall Is Taking on Agatha Christie — And No, She Doesn’t Know If There Will Be a Sex and the City Reunion

Kim Cattrall Is Taking on Agatha Christie — And No, She Doesn’t Know If There Will Be a Sex and the City Reunion
When you talk to Kim Cattrall, there’s one question that undoubtedly gets asked: Will we see another Sex and the City revival?

Though Samantha Jones’s on-screen alter ego isn’t ruling it out entirely, she recognizes there are a few roadblocks standing in their way — namely, finding a story (and the time!) almost a decade after the last film wrapped.

“The hardest thing is, what would the story be?” Cattrall told People. “It’s been seven, eight years since we wrapped the last movie. Can we get everybody together? We’re all sort of scattered now.”

When it comes to her character,

Kim Cattrall Opens Up About Her Battle with 'Debilitating' Insomnia: 'It Was a Gorilla Sitting on My Chest'
Kim Cattrall is opening up about her battle with chronic insomnia – and how she overcame it.

Cattrall, who was forced to drop out of the lead role in the Royal Court production of Linda last year, told the British Radio Times in a new interview that "the whole story is more complex than being a disease of the week, than someone saying: 'I have this battle.' "

"It was a gorilla sitting on my chest," revealed the Sex and the City alum, 59. "I didn't understand the debilitating consequence of having no sleep."

"It became a tsunami," she added. "I was in a void.

The Honourable Woman's Hugo Blick writing new thriller for BBC Two

The Honourable Woman's Hugo Blick is to write a new drama series for BBC Two.

Blick - who also scripted The Shadow Line - has created an as-yet-untitled thriller set in contemporary Africa.

Details on the series are scarce, but it is said to follow "a compelling set of characters caught up in a very human moral dilemma".

Blick is also known for co-creating BBC Two's Marion and Geoff with Rob Brydon and for devising the channel's drama Sensitive Skin starring Joanna Lumley.

His most recent project, The Honourable Woman, starred Maggie Gyllenhaal as an Anglo-Israeli businesswoman caught up in a complex conspiracy.

The eight-part series aired on BBC Two in July and August last year, with Gyllenhaal winning a Golden Globe for her performance.

Appearing on The Graham Norton Show, she said: "It was quite a strange thing. It was the first time I'd been offered something like that on Twitter. I tweet all the time and Emma Freud tweeted me and asked me to do the Bake Off.

Gracepoint; Sensitive Skin review – some remakes translate better than others

Kim Cattrall is fantastic in the Canadian remake of the 10-year-old Hugo Blick dramedy, whereas David Tennant struggles to reprise Di Hardy for Us telly

You don’t come across big international remakes of UK dramas so often that you’d expect two of them to turn up on the same night – never mind a scheduling clash. Yet here we are at 10pm: Gracepoint, the American overhaul of Broadchurch, up against a revisiting of Sensitive Skin, the acclaimed Hugo Blick dramedy starring Joanna Lumley, which first aired 10 years ago.

In its Canadian remake (Sky Arts), it is Kim Cattrall who plays Davina, a successful fiftysomething with a long marriage, grownup son, vintage Jag and fear of losing her youth. Cattrall, in her first major TV role since Sex and the City, is not exactly a revelation – her portrayal of Samantha always exceeded the limits of the show’s scripts – but

Kim Cattrall on Fifty Shades' Jamie Dornan: "He doesn't look like a man"

Kim Cattrall on Fifty Shades' Jamie Dornan:
Kim Cattrall has revealed that she has no intention of seeing Fifty Shades of Grey, arguing that the movie's male lead Jamie Dornan does not look enough like a man.

Rugged Brendan Gleeson on the other hand...

The Sex and the City star told the Irish Independent: "Maybe it's my age, but [Dornan] doesn't look like a man to me.

"He looks like a young boy. I like men to look like men. I saw the preview and you know they say in three seconds you can tell if you find someone attractive or not? Well, I just thought, 'No'."

But an actor fulfilling her red-blooded manly request is Calvary actor Gleeson.

"Now, if he were Brendan Gleeson - well, there's a little something going on there, you know, the twinkle in the eye..."

On a rumoured third Sex and the City movie, she insisted: "Well, Sam is behind me in the sense that it's over.

Stargate Reboot Lands Two Writers

Looking back at the cinematic calendar for 1994 and the quantity of modern classics released within those 365 days is staggering. Pulp Fiction, Four Weddings And A Funeral, Forrest Gump… all mainstream hits that enraptured both audiences and critics. If you brush aside the popular chaff you’ll find a handful of genre gems; in particular, Roland Emmerich’s underrated sci-fi flick, Stargate.

Emmerich, currently gearing up to relaunch his blockbuster franchise Independence Day, is hard at work on simultaneously kickstarting the Stargate brand. The in-development movie – which is heralded as the beginning of a new trilogy – has now found its writers. According to a report from THR, Emmerich appears to be employing those with whom he’s already familiar. Nicolas Wright and James A. Woods, who helped ID2 land the greenlight thanks to their script, are now on board to pen the first Stargate instalment.

The duo have struck up a

But there’s just one problem – in order to qualify,

Sex In The City star says new show Sensitive Skin proves 'women my age have very much to say'

10 years on from the last TV episode of Sex In The City, star Kim Cattrall hopes her new show Sensitive Skin will encourage broadcasters to commission more shows with strong roles for older women.

I believe that women my age have very much to say, and unfortunately this business doesnt recognise that, most of the time, said Cattrall, speaking at the Miptv television industry conference in Cannes. I believe that this show, this story, deserves a life.
