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.
ETA: I just got this in an email from someone who saw this at soaps.com.
