“The green eye shadow is so horrifying, it has to get another outing,” she joked.
Emily Blunt is totally on board for a sequel to The Devil Wears Prada.
The actress, who plays Emily Charlton in the cult-classic 2006 film, explained on The View today exactly why she would say yes to a second movie.
“The green eye shadow is so horrifying, it has to get another outing. So bad,” Blunt joked of her character. “And the fashion—we loved it. I would do [a sequel] in a heartbeat just to play with those guys again. It’s so fun,” she added of her costars.
Blunt’s Emily Charlton is the chic assistant to the intimidating editor in chief of Runway magazine, Miranda Priestly, played by Meryl Streep. Anne Hathaway stars as the lead in the film, journalist Andy Sachs, who finds her way into the world of fashion editorial only to discover it’s not where she wants to be.
Also in the movie is the fabulous Stanley Tucci, who plays Nigel, a high-up magazine staffer who ultimately gets snubbed by Priestly. (In real life, Tucci actually ended up marrying Blunt’s older sister, Felicity Blunt, in 2012, and the two remain together today.)
Earlier this month, Hathaway also made an appearance on The View, and while she said she absolutely loved filming The Devil Wears Prada, she also said a sequel would likely not work today.
“I just think that movie was in a different era,” she explained. “Now, everything has gone so digital, and that movie centered around the concept of producing a physical thing, and it’s just very different now.”
She added, “It is tempting to think about Andy and Emily needing to get Miranda her coffee, and she’s somewhere in Europe, and then along the way they pick up Stanley Tucci in Italy, who’s at a restaurant. … It’s tempting, but I don’t think it’s going to happen. They could relaunch it, find new people, and do it.”
