Sarah Jessica Parker says “what?” to SATC prequel

A couple of weeks ago, I reported some rumors that there would be a prequel to SATC through Candace Bushnell's book 'The Carrie Diaries' and hermove from Connecticut to NYC in 'Summer and the City.' (releasing April 26th) Now Sarah Jessica Parker has commented (via Pop Eater):

Finally, Parker addressed rumors that a third 'SATC' movie would actually be a prequel based on Candace Bushnell's upcoming book 'Summer and the City' -- starring Blake Lively or Miley Cyrus as a young Carrie Bradshaw.

"I was like, 'Wha-a-a-a-t?'" she said. "I don't think we can pretend to go
back. It's creating two histories. It's like, 'Oh I didn't know that about
Carrie Bradshaw.'"

Blake Lively also said:
"No, that's not true. I'm a huge fan of the show and a huge fan of
Sarah Jessica Parker but unfortunately-well, fortunately-I'm starting this movie
['Hick']," she stated.

Sarah JP also spoke about a THIRD SATC movie:

"I would go back," Parker revealed. "I think there's one more story to tell. I
know there is." The actress, who also executive produced the first two 'SATC'
movies, thinks there is still life in the story of four best friends living in
New York City. But it might have to wait a few years."I'd definitely tell that
[third] story, and I know Michael [Patrick King, the director] would do it
right. But maybe not now. Maybe in five years, you know?" she said.The actress
explained why she'd prefer to wait: "It's not that I want to get away from
[SATC]. In a million years, who could get away from it?" Parker said. "If I'm
not scared again that's not good for me. That's literally no good for me. If I'm
not terrified and nauseous and worried the first two weeks of production, then
what's going to happen?"

I agree with SJP about creating two histories. When I read the prequel, I liked it, but also was sadden I had these two Carrie’s and could not relate to what I grew-up knowing about the TV/movie version of Carrie.

As far as a third movie in five years- no way! What would they be doing? Cashing out their 401k and visiting future retirement homes?
