Blake Lively may play Carrie in 'Sex And The City' prequel




For those of you who watch Sex And The City (you know who you are), don't expect to see Sarah Jessica Parker in the prequel, The Carrie Diaries. In fact, an Italian magazine says Carrie will be played by Gossip Girl's Blake Lively. Hey, CGI can only do just so much.

"There are no plans to bring SJP and the other girls back together in the old format," a source tells Grazia about the story, which started as the book written by Candace Bushnell. The mag says producer Michael Patrick King wants Blake to fill Carrie's expensive shoes. "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."

Considering Bradshaw is supposed to be 19 for the story, that only makes sense. But we all remember how the Star Wars prequels turned out, don't we?
