20 Feb Mr. Big Won’t Be in ‘Sex and the City’ Reboot
Mr. Big is breaking our hearts once again. If the rumors are true, Chris Noth will not be returning to the “Sex and The City” reboot.
According to The New York Post’s Page Six, Noth will be joining Kim Cattrall in sitting out for the reboot. The article also suggested that David Eigenberg, who plays Steve Brady may also choose to sit out.
The original stars of the early 2000’s romantic-comedy are Sarah Jessica Parker (Carrie Bradshaw), Cynthia Nixon (Miranda Hobbes), Kristin Davis (Charlotte York) and Kim Cattrall (Samantha Jones). Cattrall will not be involved in the reboot.
“And Just Like That” will follow the trio “as they navigate the journey of the complicated reality of life and friendship in their 30’s to the even more complicated reality of life and friendship in their 50’s,” according to HBO.
First Samantha, Now Big
Fans were disappointed to hear that Samantha won’t be joining the other girls for the show. Now that fans hear that Mr. Big won’t be involved, they’re crushed.
“Sex and the City without Samantha and Big is just…the City,” another fan said.
In 2018, journalist James Andrew Miller predicted that Mr. Big would die of a heart attack in “Sex and the City 3,” which was never produced.
“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,” James Andrew Miller, host of Origins podcast said.
Criticizing His Character
Noth has criticized his work in the two “Sex and the City” movies and described it as “corny.”
“I really hate corny stuff and it could be because I’m a little bit of a cynic. I just hate the cornball sh*t and I thought it was just really sentimental and overly romantic without any feet in realism,” Noth said.
Noth also stated that he’s a “team player” when it comes to the franchise and would like to reunite with the cast, but it appears he feels differently now about the reboot.
“Just as in real life, people come into your life, people leave. They’re trying to tell an honest story about being a woman in her 50’s in New York,” HBO Max chief content producer, Casey Bloys stated. “It should all feel somewhat organic, and the friends that you have when you’re 30, you may not have when you’re 50.”
No matter what happens to Mr. Big’s character, the reboot won’t be the same without him. How will Carrie react to his absence in her life?
