Cattrall refuses to hold out for Sex and the City film

A Sex and the City film has been scrapped after Kim Cattrall refused to get involved in the project.

According to Variety Kim, who played Samantha Jones in the series, felt she couldn't commit to the film as no script had surfaced.

The film was due to be written and directed by Michael Patrick King.

"She would have loved to have done the movie and made a deal to do the movie, but waited as long as possible with no script or start date and felt she had to take other offers that were presented to her after the hold period had passed," Cattrall spokeswoman Marvet Britto said.

"Kim would of course love to do the film and would be happy to revisit the project in the future."

Variety adds that other reasons could have come into play, such as Cattrall wanting script approval and to earn the same amount as Sarah Jessica Parker.

HBO was unwilling to consider replacing Cattrall, or to go through the time and effort of developing a script without her firm commitment.
