CBS TCA Summer Press Tour: Michael Patrick King (No Prequel for “Sex and the City”?)

At the TCA CBS Summer Press Tour during the panel for “Two Broke Girls”, Michael Patrick King, “Sex and the City” writer and the director of its two film adaptations, announced that a prequel for Sex and the City is something he doesn’t “even imagine doing.” Rumors have been abuzz about a prequel film following Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte taking place prior to the popular HBO television show. According to the rumors, Blake Lively would play young Samantha, Selena Gomez would play Charlotte, Emma Roberts would play Miranda, and Elizabeth Olsen would play Carrie Bradshaw.

King stated, “The idea of going backwards on ‘Sex & The City’ is something that I don’t even imagine doing. I haven’t read the books, but I have no connection to the prequel.” King said that he was only interested in Carrie Bradsaw as a character in her mid-30’s to 40’s. He went on to add, “I didn’t even want to know who her parents were.”

Now this doesn’t really put an end to the chance of a prequel, but it doesn’t seem like Michael Patrick King would be on board. What do you think?
