Emily Blunt has shared an update on a Devil Wears Prada sequel almost 18 years on from when the iconic film first hit screens.

The actress, 40, who starred alongside Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway in the 2006 comedy, shed some light on its future in a new interview. 

Speaking to Josh Horowitz on his Happy Sad Confused podcast, she admitted the cast are ‘all good’ with no sequel as there has never been a ‘real momentum’ for one, in quotes obtained by People.  

‘Sometimes things should be cherished and preserved in this bubble and it’s okay,’ Emily added. 

Referring to her co-star Meryl’s 2012 interview with Access Hollywood, she said: ‘And I think – didn’t Meryl [Streep] say something funny about it?’

She continued: ‘They asked her about it, “Would she ever do a sequel?” and she went, “Yeah, if I don’t have to lose the weight.” But I think she said “the f****** weight.”‘ 

It comes after Emily reunited with her co-star Anne 18 years after first meeting on the set of Devil Wears Prada.

The Hollywood actresses featured in the Actors on Actors issue of Variety and realised it had been nearly two decades since they they lit up the screen playing arch enemy assistants Andrea and Emily, respectively, in the iconic 2006 comedy that catapulted them into stardom. 

‘You are one of the people I’ve known longest. We’ve known each other for 18 years,’ Blunt incredulously told Hathaway, to which she replied, ‘What? Our relationship is the age of an adult.’

Blunt hilariously added, ‘That’s drinking age in England,’ as Hathaway quipped, ‘We are so drunk in England right now.’ 

The stars then took a walk down memory lane to reveal the details of their very first interaction before the cameras rolled on the $325 million blockbuster.

The British actress went on to say that the pair had a ‘joy bomb’ making the film, although neither actress could foresee it becoming a huge part of pop culture.

‘It’s quoted to me every week,’ Blunt added. ‘It will be the movie that changed my life.’

The David Frankel-directed film was based on Lauren Weisberger’s 2003 novel of the same name and revolves around the character Andy Sachs (played by Hathaway), a recent college graduate aspiring to be a journalist. 

She lands a job as the assistant to the powerful Miranda Priestly (played by Meryl Streep), the editor-in-chief of the prestigious fashion magazine Runway, who also employs aloof lead assistant Emily Charlton (Blunt).

During their reunion for Variety, Hathaway and Blunt had a blast reciting iconic quotes from the movie and revealed that Streep and Stanley Tucci (who played art director Nigel Kipling) would often improvise their lines.

They also dished on the fun they had on set, which they said was often lost on Streep as she stayed in character as the demanding boss. 

‘You know, I think [Meryl] always wanted to join in on the fun with us. She kept herself so in character,’ Hathaway said. ‘Do you know she’s never done Method acting since?’ Blunt chimed in.
