Following chatter that it may become a movie, The Carrie Diaries - Candace Bushenll's prequel novel to Sex and the City - has instead been picked up as a pilot for The CW and will likely be included on that network's fall schedule.

In other words: the search for a new Carrie Bradshaw is on!

Carrie Diaries

The story follows Carrie as a high school student in Manhattan and, via earlier rumors, Blake Lively was supposedly up the the iconic lead role.

But she'll be on Gossip Girl when the series premieres and is likely to test out a movie career once that show is finished. Who does that leave for Carrie? We've listed four suggestions below and are open to others. Who do you think is the best fit?
