“Sex And The City” Prequel: Violet Beauregarde Is The New Carrie BradshawBy: Amanda Crum - March 23, 2012
The wildly successful HBO series “Sex And The City”–which ended in 2004 and spawned two subsequent films–is now expecting a reboot on The CW that will feature Carrie Bradshaw as a teenager in the ’80s: “The Carrie Diaries”.
Sarah Jessica Parker, whose portrayal of the character Carrie Bradshaw on the original show brought her great success, is in full support of the new show and even wrote her successor, AnnaSophia Robb, a letter of encouragement.
“She sent me a letter! I wrote her one back, too. She was just very encouraging about it all. It was really cool!” gushed Robb, who is best known for the recent film “Soul Surfer” and for her portrayal of Violet Beauregarde in Tim Burton’s 2005 film “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”.
The show, which tells the backstory of Bradshaw during her teen years, will of course tone down the sex for its new generation of viewers and focus more on the drama that comes with the teenage world.
As for Parker, she discusses the possibilty of a third “SATC” movie:
While hardcore fans of the original show don’t seem to be too pleased with the prospect of a prequel that doesn’t include SJP, perhaps it will usher in a new generation of fans.
Sex and the city prequel series on CW. And Sarah Jessica Parker is NOT in it. No thanks.
A prequel series for Sex and the City? Is Hollywood really that out of ideas?
The Sex and the City prequel series is shooting in my neighborhood, which begs the question, why are they making this show?
