Stanley Tucci ha confirmed he will reprise his role as Joshua Joyce in 'Transformers: Age of Extinction', the fifth installment of the motion picture
Stanley Tucci is to star in 'Transformers: Age of Extinction'.
The 55-year-old actor has confirmed he will reprise his role as Joshua Joyce in the fifth installment of the fantasy film franchise, which has already started shooting, Variety reports.
Tucci will act alongside the likes of Mark Wahlberg, Anthony Hopkins and Josh Duhamel in the motion picture.
But the actor insists there is no chance of a sequel to 2006 comedy drama movie 'The Devil Wears Prada' ever happening.
When asked if a film based on author Lauren Weisberger's new book 'Revenge Wears Prada' could come to the big screen one day, he told Hollywood Reporter: "That's never going to happen."
While he is not keen to reprise his character, art director Nigel, in a follow up movie, he admitted the original film was his "perfect" project.
He added: "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. Perfect in every way."
But the actor doesn't want to take anything away from the original film by shooting a sequel.
He said: "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."
The movie saw Anne Hathaway play college graduate Andrea Sachs, who has just landed a job as powerful fashion magazine editor Miranda Priestly's (Meryl Streep) co-assistant alongside Emily Charlton (Emily Blunt).
Blunt recently admitted she would be up for the sequel with the original cast.
She said: "I would do it, but only if everyone did it.
"I don't know why it hasn't been done, but everyone's got to do it."
