‘Sex and the City’ kills Mr. Big; Kim Cattrall not having it

Big (Chris Noth) die in the "Sex and the City 3" movie, which never ended up getting made.

Such a story development likely would come as a shock to fans who patiently followed Big and Bradshaw's long road to the altar - the couple finally married in the 2008 hit film "Sex and the City", a sequel to the long-running HBO series.

"People close to Kim [Cattrall] believe that the script didn't have a lot to offer the character of Samantha", James told Chris on his "Origins" podcast. They point to the fact that it calls for Mr. Miller further elaborated that "the remainder of the movie [would have been] more about how Carrie recovers from Big's death than about the relationship between the four women".

And the reporter revealed that Carrie's husband John James Preston, or Mr Big, was killed off in the proposed script for a third one.

"Sex and the City" has put Sarah Jessica Parker through the ringer over the years (the tie-dye jeans and bandana combo, that Post-it, Kim Cattrall's Instagram, etc.) but the third film in the franchise planned to throw the biggest wrench in her happy ending yet.

And it turns out this all could have been avoided if the writers chose to keep Mr Big alive. Like, the whole thing at the end of the movie in the shoe closet, hated it...

"I just hate the cornball s-t, and I thought it was just really sentimental and overly romantic without any feet in realism", he continued, adding that he still would have liked to reunite with the cast, however, because he's "a team player".

Just a few months later, she publicly lashed out at Sarah Jessica Parker after the actor sent condolences for the death of Cattrall's brother.

Despite Cattrall's claims, Parker, who was a producer on the first two films, told Miller that there is no bad beef between her and her co-star.

Cattrall allegedly claimed that she was "everyone's favorite", King said, and wanted a salary as high as Parker's. It had nothing to do with demands for money or more scenes, she said.

This bombshell was dropped while Miller was trying to get to the bottom of why actor Kim Cattrall had refused to star in the not-happening third movie.

According to Miller, Cattrall already wanted to move away from the Sex and the City world and there was a sense the show's profits were being divided up unfairly on the back end all of which made Cattrall feel even less inclined to be involved. "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".

Sarah Jessica Parker's character Carrie Bradshaw would be a widow. You're an integral part, of course you are. We're not able to do it. You want to have respect and I have respect ... it's very hard because we were crushed by not doing that third film.
