We've all been begging for a sequel to the much-loved film The Devil Wears Prada, and now one of the stars has stepped forth to answer our question!

Everyone remembers Stanley Tucci's memorable role in The Devil Wears Prada and ever since we laid our eyes on the film we have had our fingers and every other body part crossed for another film to dig our fashion-starved teeth into.


Well! Stanley has just opened up about the film and the prospects of a sequel! 

But it's not exactly the news we've been expecting. 


Despite his co-stars Emily Blunt and Anne Hathaway having reportedly expressed an interest in returning to the film, Stanley flat-out refuted the possibilities. 

"That's never going to happen," he told The Hollywood Reporter

How can Stanley do this to us? Why would he not return to reprise his renowned role?!


His explanation as to the why behind his decision comes down to him not wanting to mess with what is already perfect. 

"That role was so great because it was so beautifully written and he was incredibly funny and there was a real substance to it. It was a truly great American studio movie in every way. 

Sometimes it’s best just to leave things. If you try to redo it, let’s face it, there are very few sequels that actually work."

While we're saddened that we won't see Stanley in a sequel, we're just glad that we have a dozen of his other films to entertain ourselves with. He's a true talent. 


Plus, we will obvs be re-watching The Devil Wears Prada on repeat regardless. 

Do you agree with Stanley? Should perfection not be messed with? Let us know in the Facebook comments!
