Even though Carly has her fair share of heartache these days in Port Charles, her lovely portrayer Laura Wright remains hopeful about a side project she has her sights set on. A screenplay called "Never Can Say Good-bye" has been written with her in mind to play a lead role as (can you guess?) a soap star! Crystal Chappell, a former cast mate of Wright's from Guiding Light, and writer/producer Kim Turrisi have completed the feature-length screenplay and are pitching it to SOAPnet. The story is about four college friends and possible cast members include GL's Gina Tognoni, Beth Ehlers and possibly even Paul Anthony Stewart (in addition to Wright). Details are pending, of course, until the project earns the highly coveted "green light" status, but Soaps.com can report that "Never Can Say Good-bye" is definitely a chick flick and that's right up SOAPnet's alley.
Can you guys believe this? I can, for sure. OMG, Laura is going to be in a movie. I hope to God this happens. :dance3
ETA: I just got this in an email from someone who saw this at soaps.com.

Ok, I'm taking a sabbatical from GH but I've got SN and I'll so watch this. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for the "green light." :yahoo :yahoo
OMG ... That's wonderful news, I hope everything works out
Okay, well it has been a few days since I got this most wonderful news for Laura, but I have not received any more news as of yet about the movie and her role in it.
But, once I do get some more news, I will keep everyone on here posted about it.
Anyways.....Kudos to Laura and I really really realllllly hope that this happens and I can't wait to see it on SoapNet when it airs.
