A 'Devil Wears Prada' Sequel Is Reportedly Happening

Gird your loins! A Devil Wears Prada sequel is reportedly in development at Disney, and will follow the lives and careers of two of the movie’s most memorable characters.

Reports say that both Emily Blunt and Meryl Streep are involved—however, neither the actors nor Disney have commented on or confirmed this. The Devil Wears Prada producer Wendy Finerman allegedly convinced the two stars to sign on to the sequel.

According to Variety, the movie reportedly “follows Priestly as she navigates her career amid the decline of traditional magazine publishing and faces off against Blunt’s character, now a high-powered executive for a luxury group with advertising dollars that Priestly desperately needs.”

The original movie’s screenwriter, Aline Brosh McKenna, is reportedly in talks to write the sequel. We’ll be waiting for confirmation that Streep and Blunt are on board—just recently, Emily Blunt opened up to Anne Hathaway about the ways that The Devil Wears Prada changed her life.

“We just had a joy bomb of a time on that movie,” Blunt told Hathaway during a conversation for Variety’s Actors on Actors series. “I don’t know if any of us knew it was going to become what it did. It’s quoted to me every week. It will be the movie that changed my life.”

But one thing also needs to be addressed: Anne Hathaway’s absence from the reports thus far. Seeing as she played Andy, the protagonist of the original film, surely a sequel can’t happen without her?

When Hathaway’s been asked about a Devil Wears Prada sequel in the past, she’s admittedly not been positive; she told Entertainment Tonight last year, “There’s not going to be a sequel. It’s not gonna happen. We can’t do it.”

She then added in an interview with V Magazine earlier in 2024, “We all love each other and if somebody could come up with a way to do it, I think we’d all be crazy not to. But there’s a huge difference in the world now with technology, and one of the things about that particular story is it was about producing a physical object. Now with so much being digital, it would just be very different. Maybe me, Stanley, Emily, Meryl, Dave Frankel, Patricia Field…we should just all do something else together. That’d be fun.”

Fans feel passionately about the whole gang reuniting for a sequel, including Hathaway. One even posted on X (formerly Twitter), “Full OG cast or nothing.”

We would also need Stanley Tucci back for the sequel, though—which does look likely, seeing as he said he’d “happily play Nigel again” as recently as last year.
