Sex and the City dead, over, gone

Chris Noth says ru­mours of Mr. Big ’s planned death ex­ag­ger­ated

The Recorder & Times (Brockville) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Chris Noth in­sists there will not be a third Sex and the City movie as the cast are not on speak­ing terms.

The ac­tor, who played John “Mr. Big ” Pre­ston — the love in­ter­est and even­tual hus­band of Sarah Jes­sica Parker’s char­ac­ter Car­rie Brad­shaw — in the hit TV se­ries and two spinoff films, is adamant a third in­stal­ment will never hap­pen.

“There’s no drama. There’s no movie, there’s noth­ing go­ing on with it. It’s dead, it’s over, it’s gone,” he said at the Bri­tish In­de­pen­dent Film Awards in Lon­don on Sun­day.

The 64-year-old also re­vealed that he is no longer in touch with any of his former col­leagues and that they are not close, adding: “We’re all liv­ing our lives and rais­ing chil­dren, some of us at least. It hap­pens with a lot of films and things. You get very close for a fi­nite amount of time and then never see each other again!”

Ad­di­tion­ally, Noth de­nied re­ports that Mr. Big was killed off in an early script for a third movie — a claim made by pod­cast host James An­drew Miller, who said the plot point had caused Kim Cat­trall, who played Samantha Jones, to veto the film.

“He wasn’t gonna die,” he said. “There’s no way he was dy­ing. That was all a lie.”

Parker and fel­low stars Kristin Davis and Cyn­thia Nixon, who played Char­lotte York and Mi­randa Hobbes, re­spec­tively, had signed on for a third film, but it was canned in September 2017, af­ter Cat­trall re­fused to re­turn, spark­ing a feud be­tween her and Parker.

Dur­ing chats with cast­mem­bers in­clud­ing Noth, Miller al­leged Cat­trall’s boy­cott of the film was due to Mr. Big ’s death — as the plot fo­cused on how Car­rie copes with los­ing her hus­band and had lit­tle to of­fer her char­ac­ter. WENN
