Cattrall is adamant she never even entertained the idea of signing on for a third "SATC" movie, but another actor says otherwise.
The war over "Sex and the City 3" wages on and now Stanford Blanch is getting in on the action.
Actor Willie Garson, who played Carrie Bradshaw's gay BFF on the series, fired off a tweet referencing the drama surrounding the demise of the third movie. His message heavily implied Kim Cattrall did show interest in the project before walking away from it entirely, even though she maintains she never wanted to do it.
"Dear fans, because I'm 'toxic', I'm going to negotiate a contract for 6 months, not come to terms, then say I never wanted to do it anyway," he said on Wednesday.

His comments came after Cattrall told Morgan about her icy feelings towards the project and co-stars involved, who she says never contacted her as news of the movie falling apart first broke.
"That's another thing that's really disappointing is that nobody ever picks up the phone and tries to contact you and say, 'How you doing?' That would have been the way to handle it," she said. "And usually what happens in a healthy relationship is that someone, or a transaction for a job in my business, is that someone says, 'Are you available?' and you say 'Yes' and 'Here's the job' and you say 'Yes but thank you very much but I'm sort of over here right now but thank you very much' and that person turns to you and they say 'That's great, good luck to you, I wish you the best.'"
"That's not what happened here," she said. "This is, it feels like a toxic relationship.'"
The internet was thrown into a tailspin last week when Sarah Jessica Parker revealed a third movie based on the classic HBO series was officially dead, amid online reports that Cattrall's "demands" were holding up the project. "I'm disappointed. We had this beautiful, funny, heartbreaking, joyful, very relatable script and story," SJP told "Extra" at the time. "It's not just disappointing that we don't get to tell the story and have that experience, but more so for that audience that has been so vocal in wanting another movie."
Cattrall later admitted that she had no desire to make another movie in the franchise, but denied her "demands" had anything to do with it.
"Now at this very moment it's quite extraordinary to get any kind of negative press about something that I've been saying for almost a year of 'no' that I'm demanding or a diva," Cattrall told Morgan. "And this is really where I take to task the people from 'Sex and the City,' and specifically Sarah Jessica Parker, in that I think she could have been nicer."
"Sarah Jessica, she could have been nicer, she could have in some way," she continued. "I don't know what her issue is, I never have."
Cattrall explained that her opinion on another film was "always no and a respectful, firm no."
Kristin Davis also spoke out about the movie's demise on Instagram over the weekend, saying she was "deeply frustrated" it didn't pan out.
I love to look back at the pics from our LONG history of Sex and the City. I am incredibly lucky to have gotten to play Charlotte through all of her ups and downs ( epitomized in one of my favorite episodes here). It is true that we are not going to be able to make a 3rd film. I wish that we could have made the final chapter, on our own terms, to complete the stories of our characters. It is deeply frustrating not to able to share that chapter (beautifully written by MPK) with all of you. So we will just have our memories, but please know that all of the love and support for us through the years is felt by us and we are so grateful for all of you!SATC forever in our hearts ❤️💗❤️💗❤️💗❤️💗
