Kristin Davis: Sex and the City actress hopeful of third film instalment

Kristin Davis, the Sex and the City actress, has held out hope for a third Hollywood film instalment in the hugely successful franchise.

Despite no script currently in the works, the 45 year-old, who plays the dainty, unfalteringly romantic Charlotte York Goldenblat, "would never say never" to another film.

In Sex And The City 2, the eagerly anticipated sequel about four stylish, single New York women prowling for men, was a box-office flop after its opening earlier this year and was panned by many critics.

Asked if another cinematic romp for the four "Sex and the City" friends, Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha, was in the offing, replied: "As far as I know, we have no script for the third (film).

"But I would never say never. We'd be thrilled if it happened."

Davis was speaking in Seoul, where she is currently to take part in the opening of a health care clinic/

Her comments come after Chris Noth, the actor who played the “Mr Big” character in the franchise, declared it “dead” after it was dismissed by critics.

The 56 year-old blamed its demise on the media, insisting the press "killed" the franchise, which has turned into a global phenomenon.

In the sequel Sarah Jessica Parker, 45, reprised her role as New York columnist Carrie Bradshaw.

She is joined by Kim Cattrall, who plays publicist Samantha Jones, Cynthia Nixon, who portrays lawyer Miranda Hobbes and Davis.

Released earlier this year, the foursome swap the sprawling streets of New York for the dry deserts of Abu Dhabi, in scenes which were actually shot in Morocco.

The programme’s fans flocked to see the big screen adaptation, eager to see what had happened to the main characters.

But it earned a string of poor reviews and was panned by critics who thought the film was tired and run out spark. Some even accused it of being "blatantly anti-Muslim" after several of the scenes were deemed offensive.

The female actresses who play the leads have all refused to rule out appearing in another movie together.

Davis is set to return to TV soon in a vastly different role, "The Happiness Project," based on a memoir by Gretchen Rubin, a former law clerk to Sandra Day O'Connor, the US Supreme Court Justice, about her year-long journey to make herself happier.
