Anne Hathaway has put off any ray of light to the possible development of the dramedy sequel, for now.
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."
A loose adaptation of Lauren Weisberger's 2003 novel of the same name, "Prada" stars also Meryl Streep and Emily Blunt. Directed by David Frankel, the flick was released on June 30, 2006 and opened second to "Superman Returns" on the box office with an impressive $40 million. It went on to gross $124.7 million nationwide and $326.4 million worldwide.
