(CBS/AP) NEW YORK - There's a smell of sulfur at Simon & Schuster, where author Lauren Weisberger has made another pact with the devil.

The publishing house announced Thursday that Weisberger, the author of "The Devil Wears Prada," has a sequel planned for next April.

"Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns" continues the adventures of former magazine assistant Andrea "Andy" Sachs, now a bridal magazine editor, and the imperious boss she thought she had escaped, Miranda Priestly.

Published in 2003, "The Devil Wears Prada," was adapted into a 2006 hit film of the same name starring Meryl Streep as Miranda and Anne Hathaway as Andy. Streep earned one of her record Oscar nominations for her role as Miranda. The movie, in which Weisberger has a cameo, also was nominated for an Oscar in the costume design category.

Weisberger, 35, is a former assistant at Vogue, and Miranda is widely considered a fictionalized version of editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.

Weisberger's other books include "Chasing Harry Winston" and "Last Night at Chateau Marmont."

Simon & Schuster and CBS have the same parent company.
