We must admit, we're kinda relieved to hear this news.
While we love Blake Lively as an NYC fashionista on Gossip Girl, we're not so sure she'd be the ideal actress to fill Ms. Sarah Jessica Parker's Manolo's in the Sex & The City prequel.
While it was widely reported The Town star might take on the role of a young Carrie Bradshaw circa the 1980's in Candace Bushnell's bestselling prequel, The Carrie Diaries, Livelyâ€™s rep shut down the rumor telling X17online:
- "This is not true at all."
That doesnâ€™t mean sheâ€™s completely out, but we'd really like to see an unknown cast as the fabulous icon that is Carrie Bradshaw.
The film follows young Bradshaw's high school days and her first few months in NYC when she begins a relationship with an older man.
If the 1980's flashback at the beginning of Sex & the City 2 is any indication of what's to come in The Carrie Diaries, there's no way we'll miss this film ... Blake Lively or not.
Find out if SATC's fab four will make an appearance in Diaries, after the jump ...
An insider recently revealed there are no plans to bring Sarah Jessica Parker and the rest of the lovely ladies back together for The Carrie Diaries. The prequel is about breathing new life into the story. In other words: out with the old and in with the new!
