It seems the saga of Carrie Bradshaw and Mr. Big is over for good. But why? Sex and the City star Kim Cattrall reveals she “didn’t want to do” another film.
Since Sex and the City 2 came out in 2010, fans of the HBO series and film sequels have eagerly speculated whether their four favorite ladies will reunite on screen for one final film.
