The exec producer of Sex and the City is speaking out for the first time about Kim Cattrall's decision to pull out of the show's big-screen spinoff a stunt that killed the project for good. "The thing that's saddest for me," Michael Patrick King tells USA Today, "is that the whole movie was for the audience. The series ended with pathos and deep emotion, but this would have been big laughs. Now it will never happen." King says the movie would have picked up where the series left off and also feature a flashback to the girls' first meeting in the '80s. "It would have been screamingly funny," he says. "A lot of '80s clothes." Damn you, Kim Cattrall! Damn you!
