Sex & the City death rumor addressed

'Sex and the City' director addresses death rumor

May 5, 2008, 4:54 PM EST

 

NEW YORK (AP) -- Will "Sex and the City" have a "Death in the City"? It's been a persistent rumor in cyberspace as the buzz kicks into overdrive for the film opening later this month.

 

If you want the rumor to remain in play, stop reading now.

 

But director Michael Patrick King is ready to free us from some of our worst fears. Namely, that Mr. Big, Carrie Bradshaw's longtime, on-and-off love played by Chris Noth, will somehow kick the bucket.

 

"Kill Mr. Big? I would have been chased around the planet by women with torches," said King, who also wrote the film and produced it along with its star, Sarah Jessica Parker.

 

Actually, the idea of a Mr. Big death was pitched to King early on, the director said in an interview. And it's true, he was aiming for some edge and pathos and melodrama in his script.

 

Just not THAT much edge, pathos or melodrama.

 

"I did want an emotional roller-coaster," King said. "But my ultimate target was to make our 'girlfriends' — in other words, our audience — happy. And I don't think Mr. Big dying would make them happy."

 

The death rumor has led to some naughty speculation. One of the naughtiest: New York Magazine suggested that Charlotte, the pretty and perky Park Avenue socialite, could be killed in a freak tennis accident.

 

So does anybody die? No plot spoilers here. But King, whose movie opens in late May, offered this answer.

 

"It's a summer movie," he said. "Why would I want to kill anyone?"

yes but she did not see the last 20 minutes, so I figured if it was going to happen it would happen at the very end.

A friend of mine saw a preview where Carrie is in her wedding dress and she answers her phone and then just drops it, so we all thought that Big died on the way to their wedding.

no the producer came on and said he was finalizing the ending and that just like the shows finale they filmed multiple possibilities. Makes for good DVD sales because they can advertise the alternate endings.

That is correct, she gave them passes to see the whole movie when it comes out.
