No Possible 'The Devil Wears Prada' Sequel


September 26, 2008 08:44:31 GMT


Talking to MTV News about the possibility of "The Devil Wears Prada" getting a sequel, Anne Hathaway revealed that the 20th Century Fox have put plans for a sequel on the shelves. She further explained that the reason behind Fox's decision on not pursuing a follow-up film is grounded on the fact that they can't come up with a story worth to tell.

"I'm really, really proud of Fox's decision not to pursue a sequel," the 25-year-old commented. "When I did [the upcoming film] 'Bride Wars' with them I asked what happened, and they said we can't make a story, and it's not worth it to damage the original film." Though noting the on-hold plans, she suggested that one day people behind the film may find a suitable story, "I think if they were to find a story [they might], who knows?...But I mean, who knows? Maybe they will someday."
