Sex and the City prequels
It seems like there are going to be plenty more Carrie Bradshaw stories in the pipeline, not only is a film sequel seemingly in the works, well according to the writer of film and series Michael Patrick King and HBO's West Coast President Michael Lombardo, it's in the works.
Now it seems that the future is not the only direction for the main character, and the stories are going to turn to her past, and in particular her teenage years, in Snogging in the School...no I'm kidding, it's called The Carrie Diaries.
Oh you can just guarantee that this is going to be bought up and made into Sex and the City prequels, and no doubt it's going to be dreadful.
According to Yahoo News Candace Bushnell, the writer of the stories of Carrie Bradshaw that became Sex and the City, is writing a pair of teen novels called The Carrie Diaries, and the blurb from her publicist and the publisher makes me shake my head and groan in exasperation, because I can see Hollywood lapping this up and Carrie going back to school.
“...takes readers back to Carrie Bradshaw's formative years in high school, giving an inside look at Carrie's friendships, romances and how she realized her dream of becoming a writer...
Carrie in high school did not follow the crowd — she led it. It was there that she began observing and commenting on the social scene.”
I wish I was wrong, I really do, but I can honestly see this being bought by Hollywood and coming to the big screen.
Carrie, the teenage years will just promise more of the same but at a younger age, and I can see parents up in arms about what this is teaching their kids.
What do you think? Sex and the City for teens?
