Welp, I guess it’s time to go back to the well. One of my favorite contemporary authors, Lauren Weisberger, recently landed a deal to write Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns, a sequel to her bestselling 2003 novel, The Devil Wears Prada.
Check out some info from the press release:
Eight years after saying goodbye to Runway, and escaping the clutches of Miranda Priestly, it seems as though Andrea “Andy” Sachs has the perfect life. The lowly assistant is herself now tabloid fodder. She edits The Plunge, the hottest bridal magazine on newsstands, and works side-by-side with Emily, her old Runway colleague and new BFF. Andy is madly in love with Max, a dashing scion of a storied media company, and planning to tie the knot. But Andy is still haunted by her days atRunway, and the specter of Miranda Priestly. Andy can hardly know that all her efforts to build a bright new life will lead her directly to the one she fled — and into the path of Miranda.
Now, while I enjoyed both the novel and the film (despite the presence of actress Anne
Thataway Hathaway), I’m not sure that either truly merit a sequel. I was satisfied with both endings (the book and film conclude in different ways), though I must say, Andy Sachs is not a character I really cared for.
In any case, the book is coming and there’s nothing we can do about it. Hey, I’m gonna check it out. Revenge Wears Prada will be published by Simon & Schuster in April 2013.
