Aspiring actresses and Scarlett wannabes can rest easy on their hoop skirts. At least for another day.
The lead role in "Scarlett," a future CBS miniseries based on the sequel to "Gone With the Wind," is not going to little-known British actress Polly Walker. Ms. Walker reportedly was offered the role and turned it down.
That's also the account given by publicists from Miramax, the distributor of Ms. Walker's latest film, "Enchanted April."
But a spokeswoman at R.H.I. Entertainment, "Scarlett's" producers, denies Ms. Walker was offered the hotly sought part of Katie Scarlett O'Hara Hamilton Kennedy Butler.
