It’s the news diehard Sex And The City fans have been waiting for: the Fab Four are coming back, and there’s a new Carrie in town – Blake Lively! Less than a year after the second film was snubbed by critics, it seems Hollywood hasn’t fallen out of love with the girls after all. Studio bosses are in talks to fill the glamour void with a prequel film, following the success of Candace Bushnell’s bestselling book The Carrie Diaries, about the teenage years of her heroine. Candace has just finished a second novel called Summer And The City, which takes up where Diaries left off and follows 19-year-old Carrie’s move from Connecticut to NYC.
SATC producer Michael Patrick King has already expressed interest in adapting the book for the big screen – and he wants Blake Lively to play the young Carrie.“There are no plans to bring SJP and the other girls back together in the old format,” says an insider. “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.”
