If the Sex and the City prequel, The Carrie Diaries, ever hits the silver screen, series creator Candace Bushnell knows just the lady who would make a great Charlotte York in the early years.
“You know, I don’t know… casting is like kismet. I’m going to get into trouble for this, but I was looking at some pictures of Selena Gomez today and thinking she’d make a really good young Charlotte,” Candace dished this week. “She’s so pretty. I was like… gosh, wouldn’t she be great?”
Candace revealed her choice during an interview with The Daily Caller as she promoted her new SATC novel, Summer and the City. The novelist confirms that talks are underway to bring a prequel of the popular HBO series and subsequent film series to the theaters, according to Bushnell. The film will follow the lives of the four main characters — Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda — and focus on the early days of Carrie’s life in 1980s New York City, before she became a top Big Apple sex columnist.
Selena, who made her big screen debut in Ramona and the Beezus, is making headlines for her role in the new summer comedy Monte Carlo.
