So, in spite of still being unconfirmed, the Sex and the City prequel movie based on last year’s ‘The Carrie Diaries’ by Candice Bushnell has resulted in almost as many column inches as SATC II. The latest – and bestest – rumour to hit the headlines is that Elizabeth Olsen is set to play Carrie. AMAZING, right?! Except, evidently it’s news to her.
The ladies at Instyle caught up with Elizabeth at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Installation Luncheon (try saying THAT after a glass of champagne) and the youngest Olsen sister said:
‘I’m like the biggest fan of Sex and the City, and that’s why I would never do that!’
Rrright. Looks like it’s back to the drawing board for Michael Patrick King and co.
Initially, of course, it was rumoured that Blake Lively was set to play Carrie – speculation which still brings us out in goose bumps, to be frank – but late last week it weekend it emerged that pint-sized fashion poppet Elizabeth Olsen was in line to take the lead, with Blake taking the role of Samantha. But now that’s been scotched as well, who do you want to see take the lead in SATC -1?
