Emily Blunt was part of the inspiration for The Devil Wears Prada sequel, author Lauren Weisberger has said.

Talking about Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns, Lauren said she hadn't been influenced by Anne Hathaway as Andy or Meryl Streep as Miranda, but that Emily's portrayal of the book's Emily had stuck in her mind.

She said: "I thought about Emily, not the other two. There was something about her performance, the attitude, the accent, the great one-liners... I envisaged her when I wrote the sequel."

Lauren also revealed she was hoping for a film adaptation of the book's sequel.

She said: "It would be great if it happened. My fingers are crossed. There are always murmurings of interest. Fox owns the characters from the first film so it's their call if they choose to make another."

:: Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns by Lauren Weisberger is published by HarperCollins, priced £7.99. Available now.
