Do you remember the novel “The Devil Wears Prada,” which was made into a movie back in 2006, starring Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, Stanley Tucci, and Emily Blunt? How would you feel if you found out that there is another chapter coming your way? Well start thinking that.
EW has confirmed that author Lauren Weisberger, who wrote the first book, is currently working on Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns, the follow-up to The Devil Wears Prada. Simon & Schuster will be publishing the sequel in April 2013 — 10 years after the release of the original.
Revenge Wears Prada picks up eight years after Andy parted ways with Miranda on bad terms. Andy is now editing The Plunge, the hottest bridal magazine around, alongside Emily, her one-time Runway nemesis turned current BFF. While Andy is planning her own wedding to Max, a handsome media scion, she remains haunted by her impeccably heeled former boss — and the magazine world being as small as it is, it’s only a matter of time before she hears the dreaded syllables “Ahn-dre-ah!” again.
The Devil Wears Prada was a huge literary success back in 2003. It reached the top of the best-seller lists and went on to inspire the hit 2006 film starring Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway. The novel is said to be partly based on Weisberger’s own experience when she worked as second assistant to Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour. It told the story of Andrea “Andy” Sachs, an aspiring journalist dealing with the increasingly unreasonable demands of her fashion editrix boss Miranda Priestly.
If you are a fan of the book, the film, or both, it looks like we’re going to revisit them next year. Who knows? Maybe there is also a movie sequel coming our way.
