Get out the jeans! Blake Lively teased on Tuesday, June 21, that a third Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants movie is a possibility.
“There is a strong chance there might be a third. The four of us are still best friends and to be able to create something together again has always been a dream of ours,” Lively, 28, said during SiriusXM’s Entertainment Weekly Radio and Shade 45 in NYC. “But it would have to be something that really made sense. If you wait this long to do a third movie, it needs to honor the story and the legacy.”
The Shallows actress played Bridget in the beloved 2005 film alongside Alexis Bledel (Lena), Amber Tamblyn (Tibby) and America Ferrera (Carmen). The cast reunited for 2008’s The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2.
Lively is game to reprise her role, but thinks that the storyline would probably have to target an older audience.
“We wouldn’t be making a movie for 16-year-olds again,” she explained. “We would be making a movie trusting that our audience grew up with us. I think that would be really interesting to explore.”
Lively isn’t the only other cast member on board with the idea. In February 2015, Ferrera, 32, teased another film during The Meredith Vieira Show. “There’s no green light, but it’s definitely in the works,” she said. “There is a script being written.”
Bledel, 34, dropped even more hints later that year. “It’s moving forward. We are definitely in the process. I don’t know how far away we are exactly from being on set — that would be hard to gauge for me because I’m a producer for the first time on this… but it is moving forward, and we’re all excited about it,” she told Bustle last August. “I don’t know how much we’re supposed to say about it. I probably wasn’t supposed to say that I’m producing it, because it’s not like everything is finalized.”
As previously reported, Alloy Entertainment announced plans to work on another movie based on author Ann Brashares’s book, Sisterhood Everlasting, two years ago.
“The Sisterhood series is one of Alloy’s most cherished properties and we are looking forward to continuing its legacy with Sisterhood Everlasting nearly a decade after the first film was released,” Alloy Entertainment President Leslie Morgenstein said in a statement in April 2014. “The original film brought together an incredible group of talent who we hope to unite for fans once again.”
