Will Blake Lively Be Cast As Carrie Bradshaw?

Posted by Katie F. on February 8th, 2011


Rumor has it that the Gossip Girl actress will be cast as a younger version of Carrie Bradshaw in the Sex and the City prequel.

Candace Bushnell’s 2010 book The Carrie Diaries chronicles Carrie Bradshaw’s time in high school and her recently finished novel follows the character as she moves to New York. Michael Patrick King, the producer of the past two Sex and the City movies, is looking to adapt the novels into a film and thinks Blake Lively would be perfect as a young Bradshaw.

While no one can truly replace Sarah Jessica Parker, Lively could be a good choice for the prequel considering her status as a fashion icon and, thanks to Gossip Girl, her reputation as a New York kind of girl.
