The Return of the Devil
This enthusiasm, which has not weakened over the years, has never encouraged studios to develop sequels on the big screen. However, the second opus actually exists as a novel, still written by Lauren Weisberger, the author of the first book. This is called a sequel Vengeance in Prada: The Return of the DevilPublished in 2013 in the United States.
The story follows Miranda’s former assistant Andrea and Emily ten years after she left Runway magazine. Together, they now head the wedding magazine, The Plunge, while Andrea prepares to marry Max, a man from a large New York family.
It is at this crucial moment in the young woman’s life that Miranda, the former boss, returns, more evil than ever.
An impossible sequel?
The actresses have often been questioned about the possibility of a sequel almost 20 years after the first film. But for Anne Hathaway, this seems like a compromise. Guest on the showIn 2022, she explains:
“I don’t think this will work. This film belongs to a different era. Now, everything goes digital, while film focuses on magazine design. It is very different today“
However, she adds: “It would be tempting to imagine Andrea and Emily asking Miranda to get coffee. They may be in Europe and they are going to watch Stanley Tucci (Nigel in the film, editor’s note) in Italy, who will work in a restaurant.
It’s tempting but I don’t think it will happen. They will have to do it all over again, find new actors“
Five years after the release of this sequel, Lorraine Weisberger wrote a third part, titled Hell is paved with good intentions.
The Devil Wears Prada is available on Netflix.
