Blake Lively to carry on the Sex and the City torch?

02.07.2011

Okay, so I'll admit that I did watch SEX AND THE CITY in its entirety. I'm sure there are other ladies around here that have. However, I did not watch the movies. I saw the trailers then thought, "But why?!" It just didn't appeal to me anymore.

Now it's time for Carrie Bradshaw and friends to appeal to a new generation of females.

It's being reported by Grazia (via MTV) that the three hookers and their mom could come back, but with younger stars. Now, it won't be a whole new series. The only thing that they are talking about is a prequel film which would be an adaptation of Candace Bushnell’s bestselling book, The Carrie Diaries. The teenage years of Ms. Bradshaw would play out on the big-screen.

SEX AND THE CITY producer Michael Patrick King already has his sights set on the lady he wants to play the young Carrie and that lady is Blake Lively. The insider that provided said information also mentioned this, “There are no plans to bring SJP and the other girls back together in the old format. 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.” But isn't GOSSIP GIRLS sort of similar? It's a serious question, I don't watch it.

Oh and it is possible that if this movie does well that something else could be in the works. Bushnell just finished another novel featuring the young Carrie called, Summer in the City.

This is the exact opposite of what appeals to me.

It seems beating dead horses are the new "IN" thing to do. Seriously the just remade "Single White Female" (however loosely it's still the same thing) into "The Roommate." Now this? It's so pathetic. I guess as long as you call it "Sex and the City" it will still sell. I have never watched one & never will but why would I? I guess it helps to be a chick. The truth is how many middle-aged woman go through men like these bimbos? Remember when SJP was hot in that Steve Martin film? "LA

Believe it or not, the entertainment media industry does not have its sights trained exclusively on what appeals solely to you and your friends.

there is a mrket for it but...

were not against it per se, we are against bad film making and this series and show pretty much sum it up. Its like saying I hope this new movie is like Transformers 2 and they make more of them. We want another Transformers movie just not one as awful as that. So same here we know the end product will be terrible and there fans will still go, ala Twilight and none of want anymore os those either bc they suck. Only upside is she should have to get naked bc like e previous post said how do these

My fiance has spent the past few months renting the shows from the library and catching up on all seasons of Sex and the City. Thus, I have probably seen a full few hours of the show around the house. It is awful. Bad acting, bad dialogue, bad narration, and the idea that those she-goats can get laid constantly by good-looking men is shocking (the brunette is kind of hot I guess). I can only guess how bad the movies are.

That said, this movie would make lots of money, and so any studio

Horrible idea?

I can't wait to come back and find a -34 next to this comment. In what way is this a horrible idea? You guys do realize that there are other addressable markets besides guys who ordered framed prints of the theatrical poster for Blade II, right? Horrible in the sense that movie studios aren't leaving potentially hundreds of millions of dollars on the table, to please the fanboy market?

I don't like SATC myself, but its not meant for me. A lot of these posts are an some adolescent

I don't like SATC myself, but its not meant for me. A lot of these posts are an some adolescent bitch-fest that is the equivalent of "anything not tailored specifically for my tastes is a horrible idea, and other people should enjoy nothing."

I'm sure you all have hot geek chick girlfriends with exactly the same tastes as you, but trust me when I say there a lot of hot chicks that aren't fangirls, and the sooner you acknowledge them, and the sooner you make peace to their right to entertainment they enjoy, the better off you'll be.

Blame JJ

See what you've done JJ, by doing a good and successful prequel with Star Trek ? Shame on you!! (just kidding of course!)...
Well if their are people to see it, why wouldn't they do it ?! It's business baby, and the S&C2 DID MAKE MONEY: It cost around $95M to make and did just that in the US, plus $200M for the rest of the world... Almost $300M world wild is hardly a flop... And that's not even counting the DVD/BR sales!

Great!!

A prequel so we can find out the origin of Carrie's bunions, the early years of that facial wart, where she got the inspiration for that Tranny look and how she became such a horse-faced, shallow slag.

Blah!

I like Blake, but this is a horrible idea.
I wonder how they will explain how she goes from a young beauty to the future hideous troll.

I was just thinking today if they would make a third one, but the last one underperformed. Doesn't stop Hollywood, though. Definitely a bomb.

I'm going out on a limb here and just saying that this article has really nothing to do with the demographic that this site appeals to and even the women that frequent this site, though not all, are not Sex and the City fans (Assumption? Yes. Am I right? I think.) . That being said, it is kinda a good idea to make more money and put guys through more misery. It worked for Batman, right?

Thats true love.

Stupidity!

Nobody wants to see the prequel about four bitches who have no real sense of reality or real problems! " Oh my god my Louis Vouiton shoes that coss $5,000 are the wrong color!” that's not a chrisis you stank ho! Seriously, I truly hate the influence that this and Gossip Girl has had on New York City!

I never watched a full episode. But wouldn't switching out the actresses fuck with the established chemistry that the fan-base loves. Granted, the sequel didn't do business like they were hoping, but still. I'm playing Devil's advocate here to even think there is something to ruin here. Mainly though, Blake Lively sounds like she might be taking one giant step backward in her career. If the prequel DID take hold, what then? Contracts? More sequel-prequels? Or should they just let the franchise

My ex

Yeah, my ex made me go see the first movie. It would be really awesome if I added "and that's why she's my ex," but that would be a lie. Twilight is why she's my ex. Okay, that's a lie too.

Awful film though. Everything that featured the older ladies had soft lighting. It was so bad at times that it changed the quality of the film and scene.

Any way, she got pissed at me because I started wise cracking throughout the film. I think stuff like "An acting class" in regards to Jennifer

Any way, she got pissed at me because I started wise cracking throughout the film. I think stuff like "An acting class" in regards to Jennifer Hudson, "a fire truck?!" upon the sight of a red hand bag for a gift, and many other classic zingers exited my mouth.

I personally think Sex and the City ruined a generation of women. I hate it with a passion.

Don't worry, I too have seen the series in it's entirety. At the risk of being almost entirely discredited on here I actually felt that it was well written. Granted, I watched it because of a woman I was close to at the time, but I'd be lying if I said that I watched it purely for the sake of conversation. While I do not condone any of the movie adaptions, or this ridiculous idea about a younger generation re-hash, at the end of the night I was able to sleep quite well. ;)

A sex in the city prequel is a horrible idea. Unless they cast Scarlett Johansson, Amy Adams, and Zooey Deschanel in the other roles, and the only sex happening is between the 4 of them.
