Looks like we won’t be seeing Carrie Bradshaw’s early adventures on the big screen.

Michael Patrick King, who directed both Sex and the City movies and acted as an executive producer on the series, told reporters during the Television Critics Association press tour today that he was not working on the rumored prequel film.

“My Carrie started at 33, and I took her to 43. I didn’t even want to know who her parents were. The idea of going back in time…and making her less evolved — the idea of going backward — is not something I’m interested in doing,” he said.

King was at the tour to promote Two Broke Girls, the series he co-created with comedienne Whitney Cummings.
