Will There Be a Gossip Girl Movie One Day?
Earlier this year, Star Trek became the 11th feature film spun off from the TV sci-fi franchise. Might the cast of Gossip Girl reunite on the silver screen one day?
"We've been asked that a lot," Jessica Szohr grinned. "I'm in."
"A Gossip Girl movie could be compared to a Sex and the City-type of movie," agreed Leighton Meester, giving a pitch and seeing similarities in the confessional, uber-sexy, martini-drinking worlds. "I think that would be kind of hot."
These days, Szohr is hard at work in Lake Havasu on the set of the horror film Piranha 3-D, while Meester is playing a psycho on the Culver City set of the thriller The Roommate (and starring in a sex tape that is making the online rounds).
Other stars, like Blake Lively and Chace Crawford, are establishing their own film careers or focusing on the third season of the show that premieres in September.
Could the ladies of Gossip Girl form a fearsome movie foursome?
But if the show's fan base continues to build, Gossip Girl could someday be bringing her omniscient observations to a movie theater near you.
"If they do, I don't think it'll be for a couple more years," said Szohr. "We're just going into the third season. But I think it'd be fun; we'd all be excited."
"We'll see what happens," agreed Meester. "There's no resolution in each episode - it's always a cliffhanger. So it would be pretty juicy as a movie."
Asked if she's been privy to any behind-the-scenes rumblings about a movie, Leighton said, "I have," adding, "I think we are just [concentrating] on the show right now - so maybe when it goes away for a while we can come back [as a movie]."
"You never know," Szohr added. "It went from books to a TV show - so they might as well just check off the list and make it a film too."
She just hopes such a film wouldn't be in 3-D, like her latest flick.
"I can't picture that," she laughed, thinking of her artsy style on the show. "My character's outfits would look even more crazy!"
