One of the most coveted roles in young Hollywood is that of the young Carrie Bradshaw, in the Sex And The City prequel, The Carrie Diaries. That role has been filled today.
AnnaSophia Robb has been cast as the young Carrie Bradshaw in the CW Pilot.
Robb has an impressive film career, including playing Violet Beauregard in the 2005 remake of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Sara in Race To Witch Mountain, and most recently starring in the inspirational Soul Surfer.
A couple of weeks ago, it was announced that Carrie’s 14 year old sister, Dorrit, will be played by Stefania Owen (Running Wilde, The Lovely Bones)
According to AccessHollywood.com The Carrie Diaries “will focus on a high-school aged Carrie, following the death of her mother, as she is raised by her father in Connecticut. It is not clear if the new show will feature Carrie’s later-in-life Sex and The City best friends, including Samantha Jones, who was featured in Summer and the City: A Carrie Diaries Novel, or Miranda Hobbes, who was also in the book, which was released in April 2011.”
The CW network has only ordered a pilot episode. But if the casting and the scripts are right, The Carrie Diaries could well have a weekly entry on the CW network’s schedule.
