Sex and the City Prequel: WHY?

Apparently some crazy people in Hollywood are rumored to be thinking about doing a Sex and the City prequel movie (because the last two films were just so good, barf). The movie is said to be following the plot of Candice Bushnell's prequel novels The Carrie Diaries and Summer and the City (which came out earlier this year).

We think this is a terrible idea obviously - the last SATC movie was a horrible waste of time - why
continue to try to milk a franchise that is clearly done?

Michael Patrick King said he has no plans to do a prequel:
"I haven't read Candace Bushnell's books. My Carrie Bradshaw started at 33 and I took her to 43 - I don't even want to know who Carrie Bradshaw's parents are ... The idea of going backward, making her less evolved, is something that I can't even imagine doing. I have no connection to the prequel."
Some have questioned whether The Carrie Diaries could turn up on the small screen, either on HBO or the CW. I guess it's possible, considering the other garbage remakes that somehow made it to TV.

What is interesting to us, is the speculative casting that has already been done online. And by "interesting" we mean "crazy". Despite the fact that reps for all four of the actresses cited have stated that they are not signed on to do a SATC prequel movie, the same four names keep floating around the Internet and frankly, they're kind of ridiculous. This fantasy casting call includes Elizabeth Olsen as young Carrie, Selena Gomez as young Charlotte, Blake Lively as young Samantha and Emma Roberts as young Miranda.

Um, what? Are you people fucking nuts? If this movie actually does come out and this is the cast I will personally boycott. (Well, I was going to personally boycott anyway, but this will be yet another reason.) I don't have anything against these young actresses, but um, sorry, they are so wrong to play these characters.

We really hope they don't make another SATC movie or TV show, but if they do, here are some alternative choices for the cast...
