Rumors spread early this year that series star Blake Lively was blocking a potential movie from being made, because she was “desperate to avoid” reprising her role of Serena Van Der Woodsen.
Star said that Lively’s co-stars, like Leighton Meester and Ed Westwick, were “infuriated” by her decision not to sign on to expand the “Gossip Girl” franchise to the big screen.
Not so fast!
Turns out, those rumors were completely false. Lively’s rep tells Gossip Cop that there was never a movie in the works in the first place — or, if it was, Lively wasn’t let in on the plans. Lively “was unaware there was even a ‘Gossip Girl’ movie” to turn down.
Even if there was a movie in the works, we have our doubts as to whether Meester and Westwick would be clamoring to return to the Upper East Side in the first place.
