Blake Lively Rumoured to Play Young Carrie Bradshaw in The Carrie Diaries Movie Adaptation

Will Blake Lively Step Into Young Carrie Bradshaw's Shoes?


That’s what the word around town is. Grazia is reporting that Blake Lively is the frontrunner to portray young Carrie Bradshaw in a movie adaptation of The Carrie Diaries, Candace Bushnell’s successful novel based on Carrie’s teenage years. Now, there are a few things that come to mind when you put this combination together. Firstly, in the looks department Blake could work as a younger Sarah Jessica Parker (blonde hair, great body for modelling clothes). Secondly, isn’t Blake’s role on Gossip Girl already similar enough to Sex and the City? If she’s trying to break out of the Serena van der Woodson mould — and judging by her roles in The Town and Green Lantern, it seems she is — then a role as young Carrie isn’t going to help that image. Then again, if the other frontrunner is Miley Cyrus — who has expressed interest in the role, had a cameo in SATC2 and has been described by Candace as “adorable” — I’m on team Blake (and here are some other suggestions we had back in June). Do you think Blake could fill Carrie’s shoes?
