It's finally moving at more than a glacial pace for The Devil Wears Prada because a sequel is reportedly coming your way!


Aline Brosh McKenna, the writer behind the 2006 fashion comedy, is working on a sequel for Disney, as reported by several sources. Producer Wendy Finerman will also be returning to oversee the new film.

Meryl Streep will reprise her role as Miranda Priestly, as reported by Puck News, with British actress Emily Blunt returning as Emily Charlton. However, Anne Hathaway may not come back as Andy Sachs. Praised for her performance in The Idea of You, she spoke to E! earlier this year and expressed doubts about returning to The Devil Wears Prada. "I don’t think a continuation of that story is probably ever gonna happen," she said.

The trio reunited again at this year's SAG Award. When Meryl took the stage to present an award, she 'forgot' her reading glasses and the award envelope. Emily and Anne jumped in to help, handing her both items. Meryl laughed it off, joking, "Where does the character end and the actor begin?" Emily said Meryl and Miranda Priestly are like twins, but Meryl insisted she's nothing like Miranda. Anne then quipped, "No, no, that wasn't a question," quoting Miranda's famous line.

The Devil Wears Prada was a huge box office hit, earning $326.7 million worldwide. The film's success led to Meryl Streep winning a Golden Globe for best actress in a comedy and receiving an Academy Award nomination. Patricia Field, the costume designer, also earned an Academy Award nomination.

There's no further information available about the sequel's cast or release date at this time.
