Blake Lively has landed a role in Derick Martini's "Hick". The "Gossip Girl" star told ITN on the red carpet of Elle Style Awards, "It's completely different [from 'Gossip Girl']. I play a mother of a 13-year-old, a southern woman who's also a meth addict. So it's pretty different."** Her daughter will be portrayed by Chloe Moretz.

Also in the same interview, Lively debunked report that she is set to replace Sarah Jessica Parker in a "Sex and the City" prequel which will be based on "The Carrie Diaries" by Candace Bushnell. "No, that's not true. I'm a huge fan of the show and a huge fan of Sarah Jessica Parker but unfortunately-well, fortunately-I'm starting this movie ['Hick']," she stated.

Lively was last seen on big screen when joining the cast of Ben Affleck's critically acclaimed film, "The Town". She will next be seen starring opposite Ryan Reynolds in summer superhero movie "Green Lantern" which is due June 17 Stateside.

Her upcoming film "Hick" is based on Andrea Portes' novel of the same name and focuses on a 13-year-old Nebraska girl named Luli who runs away to Las Vegas. A cocaine-snorting grifter, Glenda, will take Luli off the road under her wings. The two cross paths with Eddie, who previously picked Luli up briefly before throwing her out of the car.

Kirsten Dunst was previously reported signing up to play Glenda, while no one has been cast for the male lead role. Shooting for the coming-of-age drama is expected to start later this month in New Mexico.

UPDATE: After this article was released, there is a new report from Variety saying that Blake Lively's role is Glenda, a grifter who meets Chloe Moretz's character on the road and takes the girl under her wing. The site also mentions that Eddie Redmayne has been cast as another loner who tries luring Moretz away and also shares a past with Lively.

@Steve reeves: You're an idiot; these are actors and there is no actual rape. the character in the film may suffer sexual assault, but that kind of thing happens in real-life, and this portrays that. Trying to ignore the existence of rape is the kind of thing that has made women suffer is silence for far too long.

This is a "Chloe Moretz Rape movie". Eddie in the movie is to rape the 14 year old Chloe. This is a child exploitation movie. I do not undrstand how Chloe's mother could allow the rape. Dakota Fanning's mother allowed her daughter to be raped in the movie Houndog expecting Dakota to win an oscar. Instead people were so offended that no one went to see the movie. Hopefully the police will prevent this movie from being made.

This news is incorrect. Blake Lively is playing Glenda. A grifter who Luli (Chloe Moretz) meets on the road. She is NOT playing Chloe's mother.
