Is This the New (Younger) Cast of 'Sex and the City' Prequel? (PHOTOS)
Talks of a Sex and the City prequel have been fraught with skepticism and conflicting reports from the iconic series’ stars, and the London Daily Mail continues to fuel those rumors.
A third Sex and the City film is still reportedly in the works, and, according to the British publication, brand new faces are to play Carrie and crew before their many Manolos, martinis and marriages! The project is reportedly to be based on author Candace Bushnell’s more recent novels, The Carrie Diaries and Summer and the City, which track Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte during their teenage years and early twenties.
However, despite Mail's report that Selena Gomez, Blake Lively, Emma Roberts and Elizabeth Olsen are on board, their reps are singing a different tune. Gossip Cop reports that reps for both Blake and Emma have denied the casting claims. However, it's still fun to to consider.

Although many avid SATC fans have been adamant that no one could replace Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie Bradshaw, there has been much speculation about which young actress would be chosen to reprise the role. Newcomer Elizabeth Olsen, younger sister of the Olsen twins, is rumored to be the frontrunner for the part.
Having already proven she can play a strong, sexy and controversial New Yorker on her TV show Gossip Girl, Blake Lively is a great choice to play the young Samantha Jones. Disney queen Selena Gomez and the talented Emma Roberts are also rumored to be the current preferences to play Charlotte York and Miranda Hobbes in the prequel.
