  • “The Devil Wears Prada” is getting a sequel, multiple outlets have reported.
  • Puck reported Meryl Streep and Emily Blunt are set to return.
  • There’s no word yet on whether Anna Hathaway will reprise her role as Andy Sachs.

Meryl Streep may return as the iconic Miranda Priestly in a “The Devil Wears Prada” sequel, Puck reported.

The 2006 original, which is considered a classic, follows journalism graduate Andy Sachs (Anne Hathaway) as she struggles to survive as the junior assistant to high fashion magazine editor Miranda Priestly.

On Monday, Puck reported without citing sources that the new film will see Priestly at the end of her career, with the publishing industry in decline. Emily Blunt, who played Priestly’s assistant, has also signed on to the film, Puck reported.

Deadline, Variety, and The Hollywood Reporter cited unnamed sources to report that the cast members haven’t been confirmed yet, contradicting Puck’s report.

Representatives for Disney, Streep, and Blunt did not immediately respond to a comment request from Business Insider.

From “Mean Girls” to “Beetlejuice,” Hollywood has been churning out plenty of reboots and sequels to popular movies in recent years in the hope of securing easy financial wins.

“The Devil Wears Prada” was nominated for two Oscars and was a commercial success, making $326.7 million worldwide. It quickly became a cultural landmark, with fans continuing to discuss, dissect, and admire the movie years.

All four outlets reported the film is in early development, so it will likely not premiere within the next year.

Puck, THR, and Deadline reported Wendy Finerman will return to produce the second film.

The outlets also reported that Aline Brosh McKenna, who wrote the screenplay for the first movie based on Laura Weisberger’s book of the same name, is in talks to write the script.

Deadline reported that director David Frankel is in talks to return to direct the sequel.

Puck reported that Finerman had persuaded Streep and Blunt to reprise their roles as Priestley and her snaky assistant Emily Charlton.

No word yet about Hathaway. In March, Hathaway told E! News that she didn’t think there would be a sequel, but she has not ruled out returning.

In the sequel, Priestly reportedly ends up in a showdown against Charlton, who is now an executive of a luxury goods company that has advertising money that her former boss needs.
