Is Blake Lively refusing to sign on for a new Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants movie? A report claims the actressâ co-stars are âworriedâ she wonât agree to do a third film. Gossip Cop, however, can debunk the story.
Lively starred in the original 2005 adaptation of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants with Alexis Bledel, America Ferrera and Amber Tamblyn. They all returned for a sequel that was released in 2008, and in the 10 years since then, thereâs been much discussion about making another installment inspired by the last novel in the book series on which the story is based. Though all of the key cast members, who are close friends, have expressed interest in doing a new film, Star is now claiming thereâs concern Lively will torpedo the project.
ââPantsâ May Not Fit Movie Star Blake,â reads the headline of an article in the tabloidâs new issue. The magazine contends that while Bledel, Ferrera and Tamblyn are âall on board,â theyâre âworriedâ that Lively has become âtoo big for their britches.â A so-called âTinseltown tattlerâ is quoted as saying, âAmber and Alexis are shopping a great script, but studio honchos want to make sure Blake is involved before giving them the green light.â
The outletâs supposed source goes on to allege, âIt really all hinges on Blake: she hasnât said no yet because she knows fans would love it â but she hasnât committed to the movie, either.â This purported tipster further claims that even if Lively does agree to make the movie, âeverything would have to be on her first-class schedule.â The publication doesnât have anything to substantiate that assertion, or any of its contentions. Obviously, if the project moves forward, everyoneâs schedule would have to align, not just Livelyâs.
And rather than relying on what an untraceable and unidentifiable âTinseltown tattlerâ alleges, why not focus on what the âGossip Girlâ star herself has said on the subject? Less than a month ago, Lively said a new Sisterhood movie âcould really happen.â Noting how fans have been pushing for it, she declared, âIâm saying, weâll do it.â Thatâs Lively on the record confirming her participation, which goes directly against the publicationâs story about her not being involved.
In fact, the actress has long been in favor of moving forward with the project. In 2016, Lively said there was a âstrong chanceâ there would be a third Sisterhood movie, and that itâs âalways been a dreamâ to reunite with her best friends for another installment. Tamblyn also updated fans on Twitter about the situation in late April, telling followers, âItâs up to a studio now to make the film. So far, no luck.â Regardless of whether it ends up working out, it should be clear that Lively isnât holding things up.
