The Devil Wears Prada Sequel S: Streep, Blunt

Looks like it's finally happening :

‘The Devil Wears Prada’ Sequel in the Works at Disney with Screenwriter Aline Brosh McKenna in Talks to Return

Gird your loins. Miranda Priestly is set to deliver more withering glances in a sequel to “The Devil Wears Prada.”

Disney is developing a sequel to the hit 2006 movie starring Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway and Emily Blunt, with screenwriter Aline Brosh McKenna in talks to return to write the next chapter.

Puck was first to report the developing project, produced by Oscar winner Wendy Finerman. Disney had no comment.

The article above (which I forgot to link) was from Variety. I have no reason to doubt that Disney wants to move forward with it. And while the Variety article doesn't mention cast, I could certainly see both Streep and Blunt being interested in coming back.
They did a little mini-reunion at the SAG awards in February, even though the bit fell a little flat.

It will cost $40-50 million just to get those three stars to sign on, and it is becoming increasingly clear that stars are not drawing audiences into theaters, so the profitability of a sequel would be questionable.

But more than that, none of those three need a paycheck badly enough to make a bad movie that diminishes the reputation of what is a beloved item in their careers.

Everyone is looking to do something with any existing IP in their catalog, and throwing some money at writer to develop a story does not cost very much.

I think between the difficulty of writing a good sequel and the eventual cost of the production, this is will not happen.

Disney continues to confound Count Dooku and is in talks to bring everyone back.

Apparently there's already a story line draft. And I agree with this article, it is a decent idea. But it certainly changes Miranda Priestly's power control.

According to " a source CLOSE TO the production" . . . a production that does not even have a first draft of a screenplay.

Disney and none of the actors in question have any comment on this rumor.

I will stand by my prediction until the cameras start rolling. Until then, enjoy chewing over morsels of gossip and click-bait.

Would it bo straight to Disney + like Enchanted too?

I thought maybe the original was a Sony or Universal movie?

I saw the original but I did not like it and back then never knew it would become a classic.
