Gossip Girl’s Blake Lively may soon be taking on the role of Carrie Bradshaw in a prequel to the popular TV series Sex and the City.
New Line Cinema execs are rumored to be in talks with the shows creator Candace Bushnell about adapting her prequel The Carrie Diaries for the big screen, a series that focuses on Carrie’s teenage years in the early 1980s.
If the prequel moves forward it could spawn other movies if successful, for example Candace just finished writing Summer And The City which follows Carrie as she movies to New York City at the ripe young age of 19.

Chris Noth says he will no longer step into the shoes of Mr. Big on the one-time hit TV series Sex And The City, announcing the show dead after the second Sex And The City movie failed to impress critics or receive the box office love of the first movie.
Noth opened up about the show during the premiere of Jack Goes Boating this past week. He said the killing of the series was cemented by New York Magazine who he ripped into for bashing SATC 2.
“It’s over. The franchise is dead. The press killed it. Your magazine fucking killed it. New York Magazine. It’s like all the critics got together and said, ‘This franchise must die.’ Because they all had the exact same review. It’s like they didn’t see the movie. Got any more gum?”

Shrek Forever After (aka Shrek 4) is still at the top of the box office charts with a wekeend darw of $55.6M. Prince of Persia: Sands of Time opened in second place, just barely inching out Sex and the City 2 by less than a million in receipts. That leaves Iron Man 2 and Robin Hood to take 4th and 5th spots in the box office, respectively.
The movie Killers, with Katherine Heigl and Ashton Kutcher (poster above), opens this Friday but critics will not see it ahead of the theatrical release. This is because it’s a genre film and it’s expected that fans will watch base on their interest, not because of reviews.
Hayden Panettiere is the latest actress to sign on to Scream 4. The original cast will be present, as well as Rory Culkin, Emma Roberts and others.
You know you want to see it again: The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will have a live-action remake. Involvement includes Michael Bay, who is overseeing Transformers 3 at the moment. That is, when he’s not busy firing Mega Fox.

Movie-wise, there’s possibly something for everyone this week, with a couple of big flicks, at least in hype if not in quality. IMDB lists four new releases, and you can get more details from their profile pages, which I’ve linked to from each movie’s title.

Still in theaters: Shrek Forever After, Iron Man 2, Robin Hood, Letters to Juliet, Just Wright, MacGruber and others, mostly released last week.
Enjoy the movies!

There aren’t lot of new films opening this week, possibly because it’s hard to compete with blockbusters like Iron Man 2, Robin Hood, and others. IMDB lists four new relases, and get more details from their profile pages, which I’ve linked to from each movie’s title.
Still in theaters are recent releases Iron Man 2, Robin Hood, Letters to Juliet, Just Wright, How to Train Your Dragon (animated), A Nightmare on Elm Street, Date Night, The Backup Plan, Furry Vengeance, Clash of the Titans, and others.
Enjoy your movie-watching weekend.
Finally, the plot thickens! A few months ago, I was complaining that Sex And The City’s sequel seemed boring with no juicy plots to keep us fans in suspense.
I guess I spoke to soon. It turns out the producers were keeping the juicy parts under wraps until about a month before the movie hits theaters. Check out the newest trailer of SATC2.
The girls may be getting older, but that doesn’t mean that there’s nothing exciting happening in their lives. The girls head to Saudi Arabia for much-needed R&R away from New York City, so it gives the SATC wardrobe an exotic twist.
I was never a fan of Big’s character, so I’m actually rooting for Aidan. I still don’t understand how Carrie was able to put up with all of Big’s crap throughout the years. Aiden was her perfect match from the start. We’ll see if Carrie gives in to temptation in the land of royalty.
Miranda and Charlotte are feeling the toll of motherhood, so I wonder how they’ll make it work without losing their mojo, and not to mention, their patience.
Samantha is the only one who seems to keep it together. Except for her aging issues, her sex life is still at its peak.
Mark you calendars, girls! May 27 is the date.
When the official trailer for Sex and The City 2 was released last month, diehard fans were disappointed to find out that no major plot was unveiled. Unless director Michael Patrick King is keeping the juicy bits under wraps until opening night on May 28, the trailer doesn’t seem to have anything exciting other than the usual.
All four girls look sexy and stylish as always. Carrie is happily married to Big; Samantha has her eye on a new boy toy; Charlotte is mommy of the year, while Miranda is more fashionable. The four girlfriends are planning a trip to Morocco, and Miley Cyrus has a cameo.
That’s it. Unless something naughty and scandalous is waiting in Morocco, SATC fans are biting nails in anticipation.
If there was any doubt left as to Miley Cyrus’ growing up, there should be none left by now. She was recently spotted on the set of Sex and the City 2, apparently filming a scene. She’s only 17 but she seems really comfy around older people. Does this mean we’ll have a whole new set of SATC viewers?
Sarah Jessica Parker’s Sex and the City character, Carrie Bradshaw has done it again. She was recently sighted wearing a necklace worth $198,200! The actress wore this necklace during her photo shoot for the latest issue of US Weekly, and does it look good. But $200,000? That’s more than an average house is worth these days!
