'Sex and the City' Prequel as a Television Show?

Call it Kinder-Carrie -- Rumors Keep Swirling About a 'Sex and the City' Prequel

When news first broke that a Sex and the City prequel of sorts is in the works, based on Candace Bushnell's latest novels The Carrie Diaries and Summer in the City, the media was abuzz with casting ideas and star reactions, now the Los Angeles Times is reporting that the project could be produced as a TV series, as opposed to a big-screen film.

The latest reports have the project being discussed as the story of Carrie Bradshaw in high school, not so much a prequel as exploring what the characters were like as teens, and as a television series, not a motion picture.

Sarah Jessica Parker has already commented to 24 Frames that she's skeptical the idea can work. "I don't think we can pretend to go back," she said. "It's creating two histories. It's like, 'Oh, I didn't know that about Carrie Bradshaw.'"

The rumor mill has already cast Blake Lively as a young Carrie, Selena Gomez as a teen Charlotte and Emma Roberts as a mini Miranda.


Bridget Moynahan, who famously played Mr. Big's short-lived wife Natasha on the original series, is a champion of the young actresses ... just not in a project such as this one.

"I think they should leave Sex and the City alone," says Moynahan. "If you want to do something with Blake Lively and Emma Roberts and all these wonderful young actresses, then just come up with your own material and leave Sex and the City as it is."
