Anne Hathaway has voiced skepticism about producing a sequel to “The Devil Wears Prada,” claiming that the 2006 movie belonged to a different time.
In an interview with ABC’s “The View” yesterday, Nov. 2 (Philippine time), the American actress discussed the idea of a potential sequel after being questioned about accidentally recreating a style from “The Devil Wears Prada” during New York Fashion Week.
“I don’t know if there can be [a sequel]. I just think that movie was in a different era. Now, everything’s gone so digital and that movie is centered around the concept of producing a physical thing and it’s just very different now,” she said.
Despite her reservations, Hathaway acknowledged that it is “tempting” to delve more into the lives of the characters from “The Devil Wears Prada,” particularly Miranda (Meryl Streep), Emily (Emily Blunt), and Nigel (Stanley Tucci).
“It is tempting to think about Andy and Emily needing to get Miranda her coffee and she’s somewhere in Europe. And then along the way they pick up Stanley Tucci in Italy, who’s at a restaurant. It’s tempting but I don’t think it’s going to happen,” she added.
Hathaway recommended a “relaunch” of the movie so they may “find new people” to do it as an alternative to a sequel.
Last July 1, “The Devil Wears Prada,” a 2006 release, celebrated its 16th birthday (June 30 in the United States). It centers on Andy (Hathaway), a fresh college grad, who gets a job as Miranda Priestly’s evil magazine editor’s assistant.
