Is Blake Lively the new Carrie Bradshaw? Rumours began last night that the Gossip Girl star will play the young Carrie in a Sex and the Cityprequel based on Candice Bushnell’s novel The Carrie Diaries, the coming-of-age story of one of fashion’s most famous characters.
Although Lively’s agent could not be reached for official comment, reports thus far have been denied. According to the New York Post, SATC2producer Michael Patrick King is considering making another film with Lively cast in the star role. If the film is a hit another instalment namedSummer in the City may follow.
