‘Gossip Girl’ Gets Gritty: Jessica Szohr, Brittany Snow To Star In ‘Walks’

Before shooting graffiti-themed flick, actresses will appear together on a 'GG' flashback episode.

The past and future of [url id="http://newsroom.mtv.com/2009/03/18/gossip-girl-gossip-separating-fact-from-fiction/"]“Gossip Girl”[/url] will come together for the upcoming graffiti-themed drama “Walks.”

Brittany Snow, who will portray a teenage Lily van der Woodsen on the “GG” spin-off, and current castmember Jessica Szohr will take a break from the posh world of prep schools and privilege for the upcoming film, according to Variety.

A far cry from the Upper East Side, the story revolves around the world of underground street art and a group of young city kids who band together when a convicted graffiti artist comes home. Snow and Szohr will exercise their acting muscles alongside “Entourage” actress Emmanuelle Chriqui and Rumer Willis. Add Wu-Tang’s RZA into the mix, and it looks like we’ve got ourselves one gritty indie flick. The eclectic cast starts shooting in May.

Excited yet, “Gossip” lovers? You don’t have to wait for “Walks” to hit theaters to get your fix of the Lily and Vanessa tag team. A May 11 flashback episode will see the two “Gossip Girl” worlds collide. The throwback show will relive Lily’s glory days in the ’80s and feature reunited rockers No Doubt as the fictional band Snowed Out. Gwen and the gang will perform “Stand and Deliver” by Adam & the Ants.
