'Sex And The City 3' Plan On Killing Off Mr. Big's Character
According to James Andrew Miller's "Origins" podcast, the writers of "Sex and the City" were definitely planning on killing off Mr. Big (played by Chris Noth) in the potential "Sex and the City 3" movie.
The author interviewed the entire "Sex and the City" cast with the exception of Kim Cattrall, who played Samantha Jones. Cattrall didn’t want to participate in the movie because the script focused heavily on Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) dealing with the death of Big, leaving little for her character.
"People close to Kim believe that the script didn't have a lot to offer the character of Samantha," Miller said. "They point to the fact that it calls for Mr. Big to die of a heart attack in the shower, relatively early on in the film, making the remainder of the movie more about how Carrie recovers from Big's death than about the relationship between the four women."
Parker says she practically begged Cattrall to reconsider her decision not to participate.
"I had many, many, many, many conversations with her manager where I was told, 'She would love to hear from you.' I emailed her, I tried to reach out to her and say, 'We want you part of this. You're an integral part. Of course, you are. I hope that when you read this script, you'll see the beauty, the joy, the heartbreak in it that I see, that we have seen,' " she said on the podcast.
Cattrall spoke out earlier this year saying she is being held responsible for holding up a third movie. YIKES! Would you ladies want to see ‘Sex In The City 3’? Let us know in the comment section.
