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.
The prequel could be a last ditch effort for fans to see Carrie in her natural habitat:
“There are no plans to bring SJP and the other girls back together in the old format” said an insider close to the show, while adding, “The prequel is about breathing new life into the story and exploring Carrie’s first few months in NYC and the beginning of her relationship with an older man.”
What do you think of a SATC sequel with Blake Lively in the lead role?
