Blake Lively, Keira Knightley Casting Denials

Representatives for “Gossip Girl” star Blake Lively have shot down reports the young actress is up for playing a younger version of Carrie Bradshaw in a “Sex And The City” prequel. “There is no truth to it” Lively’s reps told EarSucker.

She isn’t the only one denying recent stories. Last month Keira Knightley’s name was spotted on the production company’s website along with Robert Pattinson as cast members for David Cronenberg’s “Cosmopolis”.

When the listing spread like wildfire, Knightley’s name was quickly removed. Her reps haven’t commented on the issue until today when they told Up and Comers that “she’s not in it.”

Marion Cotillard had previously been attached to the role before Knightley’s name was linked.
