Emily Blunt would do 'Devil Wears Prada' sequel in 'heartbeat'

A sequel? To “The Devil Wears Prada?” Groundbreaking.

Emily Blunt revealed Thursday that she would be down to film a follow-up to the 2006 movie with Anne Hathaway, Meryl Streep, Stanley Tucci and the rest of their co-stars.

“I would do it in a heartbeat just to play with those guys again,” the actress, who played assistant Emily Charlton, told “The View” co-hosts, calling the film’s fashion “fun.”

Blunt, 39, added that her character’s signature green eyeshadow was “horrifying” and “so bad” that it “has to get another outing.”

The Golden Globe winner’s green light came one week after Hathaway, 39, shot down the idea on the same talk show.

“I don’t know if there can be [a sequel],” the Oscar winner, who played journalist Andrea “Andy” Sachs, said on Nov. 1. “I just think that movie was in a different era, you know?

“Now, everything’s gone so digital, and that movie centered around the concept of producing a physical thing,” she continued of Runway, the fictional magazine run by Streep’s character, Miranda Priestly. “It’s just very different now.”

However, Hathaway noted that it was “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.”

As for Blunt and her husband John Krasinski’s “Quiet Place” franchise, the “Mary Poppins Returns” star confirmed Thursday there is “another one in the works” with Lupita Nyong’o.

“It’s a whole different world,” she explained to Whoopi Goldberg, joking that she spoke to Krasinski, 43, before the interview and “fact-checked” how much she could give away.

“It’s a prequel,” the “Girl on the Train” star added. “It’s Lupita’s film, and it’s set in a completely different environment from what you’ve seen before. And that’s apparently all I’m allowed to say before I’m blow-darted.”

“A Quiet Place: Day One” is slated to hit theaters March 8, 2024.
