A Disney sequel to The Devil Wears Prada is reportedly in development

Put on some loin cloths! It’s possible that Miranda Priestly will return to the big screen after over twenty years away.

According to Puck News, writer of The Devil Wears Prada Aline Brosh McKenna is allegedly working on the follow-up to the 2006 big financial blockbuster.

The sequel is slated to be developed and produced by Wendy Finerman, who produced the first movie. According to Deadline, discussions on a comeback are taking place with David Frankel, the original filmmaker.

There are no casting agreements in place, despite reports that McKenna and Finerman are linked.

Anne Hathaway, Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, Stanley Tucci, and Adrian Grenier starred in the Oscar-nominated picture. Disney currently owns Fox 2000 Pictures, the studio that produced the first movie, after acquiring 20th Century Fox in 2019.

When PEOPLE asked for additional information on Monday, a Disney spokeswoman did not reply right away.

The 2006 movie, which is based on the same-titled book by Lauren Weisberger, centers on Andy Sachs (Hathaway), a recent college journalism graduate who is hired as Miranda Priestly’s (Streep) assistant. Priestly is the editor-in-chief of the made-up magazine Runway.

Andy is helped by art director Nigel (Tucci) and fellow assistant Emily Charlton (Blunt) as she explores the world of fashion magazines.

Following its release in June 2006, the movie brought in an incredible $326 million at the global box office and nominated 75-year-old Streep for her fourteenth Academy Award.

According to Puck, the story would center on Priestly, who continues to operate Runway, as she negotiates the challenges facing modern publishing and the magazine’s dire financial situation. Emily will be working as an executive for a luxury brand conglomerate that runs advertisements in the journal alongside Runway.

Blunt and Hathaway have acknowledged how happy they are that there won’t be a sequel to the movie.

The 41-year-old Hathaway stated to Extra in April that fans shouldn’t «hold out too much hope» for a sequel. She expressed her opinion that a continuation of the story would probably never occur in an interview with E! News in March.

Blunt, 41, stated on the Happy Sad Confused podcast in February that the ensemble is «good» without creating a follow-up.

«It’s okay to cherish and preserve things in this bubble for a while.»

While Blunt stated to PEOPLE six years prior that she didn’t think a follow-up film was likely, she did say, «If everyone did it, I would be up for it.»

«I almost hope it doesn’t [happen] because I think sometimes when you sequel everything kind of dilutes how special the original is,» Blunt stated.

Blunt later said that she «would do [a sequel] in a heartbeat just to play with those guys again» in an interview with the co-hosts of The View in 2022.

But Hathaway admitted to the co-hosts that she wasn’t sure whether there would be a sequel a few days before Blunt told them she was eager to go back to the set of The View.

She went on to say that while she doesn’t «think it’s gonna happen,» it would be «tempting» to write a sequel centered around the adored character.

Hathaway said, «But they could relaunch it,» as she suggested a film with a fresh cast. They may go out and locate new individuals. Would they allow us to do that, in your opinion?
