Mr. Big Was Going To Die In The Third “Sex And The City” Movie

November 20, 2018 / Posted by:

People are still licking their wounds over a lost paycheck from Sex And The City 3 getting the kibosh. Kim Cattrall did us all a solid by saying she didn’t want anything to do with a third movie. Or she did but had demands for other movies unrelated to Sex that nobody wanted to do, and that’s why it got shelved. Either way, Kim is why there isn’t a third movie, and they should honestly erect a giant statue in her honor. Her old castmates don’t exactly agree, and they’re still blabbing about why it never happened. One new reason that just dropped is they were going to kill of Chris Noth’s Mr. Big early in the film, and Kim didn’t like how it was going to be all about how Carrie recovered. Yet again – even more reason not to make it!

The Hollywood Reporter says some of the cast and creators were on the Origins podcast to talk about the movie, and host James Andrew Miller said he got a sneak peek at the script, which included Big’s death and a focus on Carrie’s presumed mental recovery. I normally fast forward through the Carrie scenes when I watch the show on DVD, so this honestly couldn’t have been any worse of a movie for yours truly. James says Kim shared the sentiment:

“People close to Kim believe that the script didn’t have a lot to offer the character of Samantha.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.”

I mean, the whole show was usually about the other three sitting in silence – with the occasional Samantha dick joke and Miranda scowl – at the café while Carrie blabbed on about Big, so I don’t see how it’d be any different while they sat shiva. I did like how Chris threw the first two movies under the bus as Stink And The City 1 and 2:

“I really hate corny stuff and it could be because I’m a little bit of a cynic. Like, the whole thing at the end of the movie in the shoe closet — hated it. Hated the thing at the end of the movie after I felt she deceived me and then I say, ‘Well, it’s time I give you a bigger diamond ring.’ Hated it. I just hate the cornball shit and I thought it was just really sentimental and overly romantic without any feet in realism.”

Ha! Sarah Jessica Parker must have thrown him some serious side-eye about taking a big shit on the product placement masterpiece theater she executive produced because Chris doubled back and said he heard the script for the third movie was going to be way better and he TOTALLY would have gone back because he wants the check a team player.

The most interesting thing I found at this whole thing was SJP saying she was trying to plead with Kim to get the movie done – through Kim’s manager:

“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.’”

That gave me a great chuckle because it seems like an elaborate set-up by Kim where SJP would cry and plea to the point where Kim would simply reply, “Yeah, uh, thank u, next!
