SEX AND THE CITY Prequel in the Works? Blake Lively to Play Young Carrie Bradshaw?

     February 8, 2011


If you thought that the dismal response to Sex and the City 2 would kill the beast, you may have to think again.  MSN Australia’s blog Grazia [via /Film] reports that “studio bosses” are interested in adapting Candace Bushnell’s The Carrie Diaries, which centers on the teenage years of SATC protagonist Carrie Bradshaw.  Bushnell recently finished a second novel, Summer and the City, which follows 19-year-old Carrie from Connecticut to New York.  An insider says that there are no plans to bring back the original cast and that “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.”  Grazia also reports that Sex and the City producer Michael Patrick King has expressed interest in having Gossip Girl star Blake Lively play young Carrie.  Of course, none of this addresses the problems of Sex and the City 2, which made the characters come off like a bunch of shallow, entitled narcissists.
