Devils wears Prada is getting a sequel!
The author of Devil Wears Prada, Lauren Weisberger is working on a sequel called Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns. 10 years after the release of her her debut novel, Weisberger is set to publish the follow-up in April 2013. This is very exciting to those who’ve read the original book and saw the movie. (if you didn’t… where have you been hiding?)
In 2003, The Devil Wears Prada reached the top of the best-seller lists and went on to inspire the hit 2006 film starring Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway. The novel — is partly based on Weisberger’s own experience as second assistant to Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour — that told the story of Andrea “Andy” Sachs, an aspiring journalist dealing with the increasingly unreasonable demands of her fashion editrix boss Miranda Priestly.
Revenge Wears Prada picks up eight years after Andy parted ways with Miranda on bad terms. Andy is now editing The Plunge, the hottest bridal magazine around, alongside Emily, her one-time Runway nemesis turned current BFF. While Andy is planning her own wedding to Max, a handsome media scion, she remains haunted by her impeccably heeled former boss — and the magazine world being as small as it is, it’s only a matter of time before she hears the dreaded syllables “Ahn-dre-ah!” again.
Weisberger has written three novels since The Devil Wears Prada, but this is her first return to the cutthroat world of Runway magazine. Are you excited for Miranda Priestly’s wrath? Do you dare dream of a Streep-Hathaway-Blunt-Tucci reunion?
