‘Sex And The City 3’ Was Apparently Going To Kill Off A Fan Favorite Character 😮

After Sex and the City 2, there was only one thing most fans had on their minds: a potential Sex and the City 3. After finding out what the final entry in the series most likely would have contained, however, many are glad it never came to fruition.

On a recent episode of the podcast Origins, host James Andrew Miller spoke with many of the former cast members of SOTC and asked why the rumored third movie never materialized. Apparently, cast member Kim Cattrall was reluctant to reprise her role because Sarah Jessica Parker’s character wouldn’t have a lot of time to socialize with her friends. What was she going to be busy with? Oh, just dealing with the death of Mr. Big.

You read that right. According to Miller, who hinted that he’d read a draft of the third movie’s script, Mr. Big would meet his end in his bathroom near the beginning of the film:

“[The script] calls for Mr. Big to die of a heart attack in the shower relatively early in the movie.”

Not only would Big’s death be a huge blow to fans everywhere, it would also move the movie away from the relationships between the show’s core ensemble, which Cattrall wasn’t a fan of:

“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.”

Chris Noth, the actor who played Mr. Big, actually didn’t have much of a problem with his character’s exit from the mortal plane, however. He said on the podcast:

“I really hate the corny stuff, that could be because I’m a little bit of a cynic. I heard [the third film] was really a superior script, probably from having learned from, not the first two, but at least the second one.”

While Noth may have been looking forward to his death scene, fans were pleased to know they wouldn’t have to see it:

There were, of course, a few fans who thought the death of Carrie’s beloved Mr. Big would actually be…good?!

To true Big fans, there’s only one way to react to claims like that:

Fortunately, in our hearts, Mr. Big lives on forever and there will never be a #SATC3 to show us otherwise.
