Blake Lively revealed she will be joining Chloe Moretz in Hick.
Hick is about a 13-year-old Nebraska girl, played by Moretz, who runsaway from home and lights out for Las Vegas. Lively will play a grifter who meets Moretz on her travels, and Eddie Redmayne has signed on for another role as a different road wanderer.
Last November it was Kristen Dunst would be playing the female drifter character, but Lively saying she got it, means that Dunst turned it down.

Lively also revealed at the Elle Style Awards, that her participation in a Sex and the City prequel are “not true,” meaning she won’t be playing the younger version of Carrie Bradshaw seen in Candance Bushnell’s prequel book The Carrie Diaries.
