Blake Lively to Play Carrie Bradshaw in ‘Sex and the City’ Prequel ‘The Carrie Diaries’?

From Slashfilm:

Sex and the City 2 was a disappointment at the box office, failing to live up to the shockingly high gross of its predecessor. Rather than let the series die, HBO Films is reportedly looking into taking the tried-and-true route that so many franchises have opted for before: Making a prequel.

I could see this. While I don't exactly want a prequel (which wouldn't include all of the other characters that actually made the show work), Blake Lively does seem to be the perfect choice.

I'm so sick of hearing about this series. Thankfully my wife never got into it nor does she have any interest. However I see 1 major issue with this casting. Sarah Jessica Parker is far from attractive so casting someone as good looking as Blake Lively would be a little strange.

Ha! Too true, casting a good looking person wouldn't exactly match up huh. Funny enough, my wife was the one who got me watching the show, but's a good show. It really is a decent show and I can see why it was so popular.

I was so happy when the show died, seeing the movies come out just makes me die a little inside everytime....

The first movie was actually pretty good. The second one, not so much.

Personally I cant stand whats her name acting. Ive seen her in other things and she just doesn't do anything for me. She always tries to look "pretty" and she isn't in my eyes. I rather see her try acting some other way.

Whats her name being Sarah Jessica Parker? If so, I agree she doesn't look good at all. She's got a horse face really.

She definitely needs to get away from the pretty girl roles. She could maybe be decent and respectable if she got out of her comfort zone. She needs to do a real gritty role. Maybe some drugged out, gritty street tramp or something.

I could never bring myself to watch the show, let alone any of the movies.
