“I refuse to be sick—I’m wearing Valentino for crying out loud.”
Anne Hathaway has opened up about a potential Devil Wears Prada sequel.
The 2006 film, based on the book of the same name by Lauren Weisberger, is one of my all-time favourites. It has Anne Hathaway, Stanley Tucci, Meryl Streep, and an early noughties soundtrack. It’s set in both Paris and New York- seriously what more could you want?
And as much as I love the movie, I can’t help but shudder when I think of a sequel.
It worked for Mamma Mia 2. The Hocus Pocus sequel was tolerable. But do we really need more of Andy’s story?
Anne Hathaway recently opened up about a possible sequel, but she’s not convinced either.
She told The View:
“I don’t know if there can be. I just think that movie was in a different era. Now, everything has gone so digital, and that movie centered around the concept of producing a physical thing, and it’s just very different now.”
“It is tempting to think about Andy and Emily needing to get Miranda her coffee and she’s somewhere in Europe and then along the way they pick up Stanley Tucci in Italy, who’s at a restaurant.”
“It’s tempting, but I don’t think it’s going to happen.”
The Princess Diaries star added, “They could relaunch it, get some new people and do it.”
Would I absolutely watch another Devil Wears Prada film? Without a doubt. But I think Hollywood should just leave this gem of a movie alone.
