A pitch for the Pants!
After years of Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 3 rumors, Alexis Bledel has finally confirmed some news that fans can get excited about.
“We just pitched the third movie,” she told Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show. “Yeah, we did!”
Bledel added, “I really hope [we can do it]. I would love it. It would be the best thing.”
The 36-year-old actress' announcement marks the first confirmation that a possible third installment of the beloved franchise could actually be moving forward.
The Handmaid’s Tale star recently opened up to ET about her love for the popular film adaptations, saying, “We want it to happen, I really hope so. It keeps kind of coming up and we’re really trying to make it happen. So, I really hope so.”
Her co-star and real-life pal, Blake Lively, mirrored the sentiment when talking to ET at CinemaCon on Thursday, noting, “I think it could really happen. I think that people who love the movie want to see it. So, I mean, fans have gotten bigger movies made. Deadpool is all thanks to the fans. So I’m saying we’ll do it.”
Bledel and Lively starred in the original 2005 film and the 2008 sequel alongside pals Amber Tamblyn and America Ferrera.
The films were based on the novels by Ann Brashares, which had four sequels.
