New details about the script of "Sex and the City 3" have been revealed.
Although the script never became a movie, presenter James Andrew Miller shared some interesting facts about the plot in a new episode of his podcast Origins.
Miller said he spoke with stars of the franchise, including Sarah Jessica Parker, who played the beloved role of Carrie Bradshaw. He revealed that, after talking with the cast, he learned that a fan favorite character was supposed to be killed in the third installment.
At one point during the interview, Miller said Mr. Big, played by Chris Noth, dies of a heart attack on the script. The death, along with the focus on Carrie Bradshaw, was one of the main reasons why Kim Cattrall was not interested in repeating her role as Samantha Jones, Miller said.
"People close to Kim believe that the script did not have much to offer Samantha's character," he said. "They point to the fact that it requires Mr. Big to die from a heart attack in the shower, relatively early in the movie, making the rest of the movie more about how Carrie recovers from Big's death than she is about the relationship between the four women.

Miller also spoke with Noth, who apparently did not love the idea either.
"I really hate corny things and it could be because I'm a bit cynical, like everything at the end of the movie in the shoe closet, I hated it," Noth said, referring to the final scene of The First "SATC" movie. 2008. "I hated the thing at the end of the movie after I felt he cheated on me and then I said:" Well, it's time I gave you a bigger diamond ring. "I hated it."
"I just hate the corn ball, and I thought it was really sentimental and too romantic without any realism," he continued, adding that he still would have liked to meet with the cast, because he is "a team player."

Fans can remember that Parker and Cattrall did not exactly see the idea of a third installment of the "SATC" movie franchise. The two fought through social networks earlier this year, with Cattrall even claiming that she and the main female cast members, which also include Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon, were never around.
"We have never been friends," said Cattrall in ITV's "Life Stories of Piers Morgan" at that time. "We have been colleagues and, in some way, it is a very healthy place because then it has a clear line between his professional life and his relationship and his staff".
