Earlier this year, rumors swirled that fashionista du jour Blake Lively would be playing Carrie Bradshaw in a third Sex and the City feature film based on Candace Bushnell’s best-selling prequel book, The Carrie Diaries. Lively’s rep quickly shot those rumors down, but now we hear Lively may indeed be starring in the movie — just not as the title character.
According to The Daily Mail, the title honors go to Elizabeth Olsen — younger sister to fellow actresses-turned-design duo Mary Kate and Ashley.
Miranda Hobbes will be played by Emma Roberts, Charlotte York by Selena Gomez, and Lively apparently nabbed the role of uber-sexed Samantha Jones.
We’ve put together a side-by-side gallery of the casting below, as well as a short description of the character (at least according to The Daily Mail). What do you think of the casting?
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
