The sad news comes after Willie was seen on set with Parker filming the upcoming Sex and the City reboot in July.

SATC REBOOT

It was recently revealed that Boogie Nights star Nicole Ari Parker will step into Samantha’s Jimmy Choos on the set of the new Sex and the City reboot.

Ari Parker will play Lisa Todd Wexley, a “Park Avenue mother of three”.

Parker and costars Cynthia Nixon (Miranda Hobbes) and Kristin Davis (Charlotte York) reprise their roles for the reboot called And Just Like That.

Her love interest on the show Mr Big, played by Chris Noth, will also be returning.

A leaked script recently revealed whether Carrie Bradshaw & Mr. Big are still married or divorced 13 years after their wedding.

The longtime TV couple's fate is declared in the upcoming HBO Max series… over a decade since viewers watched them finally tie the knot in the first Sex and the City film.

Page Six revealed the juicy details from the show's leaked script, in which Carrie and Mr. Big have split and are "in the midst of a bitter divorce."

Fans of the show rooted for the fictional couple through their many ups and downs in the series' six year run.

Carrie and the entrepreneur eventually said "I do" at a court house after Mr. Big stood his bride up on the day of their over-the-top New York City Public Library wedding, as told in the movie.

In the reboot, however, Carrie is now in her 50s, a podcast host, and appears to be at odds with her husband over their finances.

The marriage appeared to be rocky on screen in the Sex and the City 2 movie where Carrie had a brief connection with her ex-fiancé Aidan Shaw, played by John Corbett, who she ran into while on a girls trip in Abu Dhabi.

The pair reconciled after Mr. Big gifted her a massive black diamond ring.

Taping for the 10-episode limited series began in June in New York City, including the original main cast, except Kim Cattrall's character Samantha Jones.

There is currently no release date for the revival.
