I simply love Meryl Streep’s comments! They are so damn unpretentious an cool. A few days back at the Women In Film 2012 Crystal + Lucy Awards when a reporter asked Streep, “So, Devil Wears Prada 2, are we going to see it?” Streep was flabbergasted. She didn’t even know there was a sequel in the works. “Yeah…no, no, is there one? I’ve never heard about it,” she said. “But, sure, I mean I’d have to lose the fuuucking weight, but I would do that, yeah.” Watch the video below (be patient – the Devil Wears Prada question comes at 3:35):
Nearly 10 years after Lauren Weisberger penned her bestselling novel, The Devil Wears Prada, she’s giving it a sequel. Weisberger is in the process of writing Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns, to be published by Simon & Schuster in April 2013.
The new book catches up with former Runway assistant-to-the-editrix Andy eight years after she’s parted ways with her demanding boss Miranda Priestly. Though Andy is now the editor of a bridal mag, she’s still “haunted” by ‘Ice Queen’ Priestly– famously inspired by Vogue’s EIC, Anna Wintour to whom Weisberger was once a real-life assistant.
There’s no film sequel in the works just yet but the buzz in Hollywood is rather strong that the sequel will be made.
