Sex and the City: The Prequel?
Look out ladies, Carrie and co. may be heading to a theater near you all over again.
Thought these single and fabulous girls were gone for good? Well, you thought wrong!
According to our favorite celebrity insider Popeater, there are rumors of a third Sex and the City in the works. And this one would be a prequel, based off Candace Bushnell’s The Carrie Diaries. The books chronicle Carrie during her teen years, but the movie would focus mostly on Carrie’s move from Connecticut to Manhattan, detailed in Summer and the City. (Get all the gory details here!)
Don’t worry, they won’t be calling in SJP and company to airbrush their way back to teendom. Instead, it’s rumored that if and when this prequel does get made it will be Blake Lively playing Carrie Bradshaw, as she takes on her “first few months in NYC and the beginning of her relationship with an older man.”
Now I loved Sex and the City back in its HBO days, but don’t these people realize it’s time to let it go? I mean, the show ended for a reason. They ran out of story lines (and birthdays) and the girls all got their happy endings. Then they went and completely tore apart those happy endings in the first movie. And the sequel? Well that was just one big Abu Dhabi disaster.
So why would they even want to make a third movie, new cast or not?
Insiders say they hope that a prequel will “breathe new life into the story.” But isn’t it maybe time they just let it die?
