At the time, it won critical acclaim, earning a high audience rating of 75%, according to Rotten Tomatoes. Perhaps because of this, we see Hathaway making statements to The View. The actress hints that she has ideas that could bring back a sequel to one of the first films that made her known and helped her emerge as a coming-of-age star after The Princess Diaries.
Anne Hathaway Talks About a Devil Wears Prada Sequel
While it’s true that for actress Anne Hathaway a sequel to the movie The Devil Wears Prada is not possible, she doesn’t rule out it could happen. In a recent interview with The View, she was asked about her return and a potential sequel. The actress then indicated that it would be “tempting.” However, considering the advancement of technology and the significant gap between when they made the film and today, she sees it slightly uphill.
Remember that The Devil Wears Prada premiered in 2006, when print media still predominated, especially in fashion. Today this has changed radically. Hathaway said she didn’t know if a sequel would be possible, “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, it’s just very different.”
In the interview, she joked, referring to the characters at the time and imagining what they would be doing now. “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.”
Of course, the actress thinks it’s possible as long as they look for new people and incorporate a twist in the plot that goes more to the present day. All this is because it has been more than 15 years since the film’s release.
