Blake Lively’s Serena lives on ‘Gossip Girl,’ actress balances film work
HollywoodNews.com: The rumors surrounding Blake Lively’s departure from CW’s hit drama “Gossip Girl” have been squashed.
Despite Lively being a highly coveted film actress now after her turn in “Green Lantern,” due out next summer, “Gossip Girl” creator Josh Schwartz took to Twitter to announce that he wasn’t going to kill off her socialite character Serena van der Woodsen.
Schwartz exclaimed, “Have to respond. No truth to rumours that BL (Blake Lively) requested to have Serena killed. All is well. Gossip Girl Season 4 back on September 13.”
It is rumored that Warner Bros. wants Lively for the role of a female astronaut in Alfonso Cuaron’s sci-fi film “Gravity.”
Lively will appear next in Ben Affleck’s crime drama “The Town” based on the Chuck Hogan novel “Prince of Thieves.”
IMDB describes “Town” as “the tale of four men — thieves, rivals and friends — being hunted through the streets of Boston by a tenacious FBI agent and a woman who might destroy them all.”
To date, Blake Lively’s prolific short list of film credits have been relegated to tween and teen fare, i.e. “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” franchise and “Accepted.”
