'Sex and the City' Prequel's Hot Casting Buzz

Fans of the popular franchise "Sex and the City" could get a taste of a 20-something-year-old Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda in the film's rumored prequel, based on the beloved friends' early years in New York City.

According to Daily Mail, the top choices for the cast are as follows: Blake Lively as Samantha Jones, Selena Gomez for the part of Charlotte York, Emma Roberts as Miranda Hobbs and newcomer Elizabeth Olsen to portray Carrie Bradshaw. Olsen, 22, is the younger sister of billionaire twins Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen.

Although it sounds like a perfect match, reps for all four actresses tell "Extra" it's not true.

The prequel would be based on creator Candice Bushnell's two novels, "The Carrie Diaries," and "Summer and the City."

Although Sarah Jessica Parker and Kristin Davis have both publicly stated they were not keen on a "SATC" prequel, Bushnell insists the prequel lays the foundation for what each character will become. In an interview with Women's Wear Daily, Bushnell said, "Every character has a back-story -- what the reader sees, in a sense, is the tip of the iceberg.

"The characters don't exist in a vacuum -- when we first meet them... in their thirties and single in New York -- they are, in a sense, in the middle of their stories, which is what makes the Carrie Diaries series so satisfying."

Parker felt the film shouldn't be based on the same characters, telling the L.A. Times, "I don't think we can pretend to go back. It's creating two histories. It's like, 'Oh, I didn't know that about Carrie Bradshaw.'"
