by at . Comments

The CW has tracked down its Carrie Bradshaw.

Relatively unknown actress AnnaSophia Robb (Soul Surfer, Charlie and the Chocolate Factor) has landed this highly sought after role. She'll portray a teenage version of the character Sarah Jessica Parker made famous on The Carrie Diaries, an upcoming pilot based on Candance Bushnell's prequel of a novel.

The series will follow around Carrie during her high school days in New York City and be set in the 1980s.

It had originally been pitched as a movie - with Blake Lively, Selena Gomez and Elizabeth Olsen in key roles - but The CW swept in a few weeks ago and purchased the television script rights.
