Sarah Jessica Parker has teased the return of Sex and the City to the big screen in an interview with InStyle magazine.

The acclaimed TV series, that followed the exploits of four women in New York, ran from 1998 to 2004 and spawned two films that took $700 million at the worldwide box office.

"A part of me thinks there is one last chapter to tell," Parker told the magazine. "But timing is a peculiar thing. It isn't a decision that can wait for ever. I don't want to have to wear muumuus!"

However the 48-year-old actress' co-stars seem split on the idea. Cynthia Nixon who played Miranda told The Hollywood Reporter "I think it's fine to let it go," but Kristen Davis (Charlotte) described the idea of making a third movie to Haute Living as "exciting".

Kim Cattrall told PopEater she would love to play Samantha again but was sceptical as to whether the film would actually happen.

Both Sex and the City films disappointed critics, in particular the second, which was mauled upon its release.
