Actress Also Quashes 'Sex And The City' Prequel Rumors



On the red carpet at the recent Elle Style Awards, a candid Blake Lively answered questions about a few projects she's been rumored to be attached to, as well as what's next on her plate.

First up, rumors circulated not too long ago that Lively was attached to star in a prequel to "Sex and the City" that would see her star as a younger version of Sarah Jessica Parker's Carrie Bradshaw character. When asked about it, Lively quashed those stories stating, "No, that's not true." But as for what's next, Lively said she will be co-starring with Chloe Moretz in the forthcoming indie drama "Hick."

"It's completely different [than "Gossip Girl"], Lively said about her role in the film. "I play a mother of a thirteen year-old...a southern woman who is also a meth addict." The project was first revealed last fall with Derick Martini ("Lymelife") directing an adaptation of Andrea Portes’ coming-of-age novel of the same name (she penned the script as well). The story revolves around Luli (Moretz), a 13-year-old Nebraskan girl and her hard-going life on the road after she runs away from her neglectful parents and home. She's taken in by Glenda, a hard-living grifter who takes her under her wing.

At the time of our initial report, a male lead was being sought and a February start date was being eyed, but the scheduling seems to have shifted slightly as planned schedules are wont to do. While nothing is confirmed just yet, we'd presume that Lively is taking over the role of Glenda originally slotted for Kirsten Dunst. We reached out to the producers on the film, and when asked about what seems like a casting switcheroo they simply responded with a "no comment." Reps for Lively did not return emails at press time.

We'll wait and see how this one pans out, but Lively will next be seen on the big screen in "Green Lantern," hitting theaters this summer. [ITN]
