The Devil Wears Prada sequel ‘in development’

One of the original screenwriters Aline Brosh McKenna is in talks to write the follow-up, which reportedly follows Streep‘s character, magazine editor Miranda Priestly, as she confronts the decline of print publications in the digital age, Variety reported.

It is unclear how many of the original cast members may return for the sequel, which US news outlet Deadline reported will be made by Disney.

However, the film’s original director David Frankel and producer Wendy Finerman are in talks to return, Deadline added.

Hathaway, who played the role of one of Priestly’s assistants, told E! News in March she was sceptical “a continuation of that story” was “ever gonna happen”.

Emily Blunt starred as Priestly’s other assistant in the film, which was based in the New York office of a fictional high-end fashion magazine.

Stanley Tucci also featured as Priestly’s long-suffering deputy.

The film was based on the book of the same name by Lauren Weisberger, a former assistant to Vogue’s editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.

Streep won a Golden Globe and an Oscar nomination for her role as the withering editor, while it was a breakthrough film for Hathaway and Blunt.
