Teenage Carrie Bradshaw cast!

The TV pilot for the adaptation of Candace Bushnell's The Carrie Diaries is set to be filmed soon, and AnnaSophia Robb has the title role.

Somewhere, Blake Lively is crying into those named-for-her Louboutins, as she's missed out on the chance to play Carrie Bradshaw in a new series.

According to all the press surrounding The Carrie Diaries' pilot, Blake should have been a shoe-in for the role. But she's signed up to Gossip Girl still, while another name touted - Elizabeth Olsen - is doing far too well with her film career to think about a Sex and the City prequel.

So, who is the girl that's playing the 80s-style Carrie?

18-year-old AnnaSophia Robb won the role, despite not really looking much like Sarah Jessica Parker, but this is a teened up version of the original series' cast - the Bratz doll versions, if you will.

AnnaSophia played Violet Beauregarde in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with Johnny Depp, and also played real-life inspiration Bethany Hamilton in Soul Survivor - a surfer who kept on surfing despite losing her arm in a shark attack.

If the pilot goes well, there's a chance it could become a series. Do any of us truly care about a teenage Carrie Bradshaw though? Time will tell…

Will there be quotes as good as these classic Sex and the City ones?
