Image Source: Getty Images / Karwai Tang Emily Blunt is about to take on one of the most beloved literary and cinematic characters of all time and, rightfully so, she's a little scared. During a press day where she was promoting The Girl on the Train, Blunt was equally excited to discuss the next huge role she's lined up, playing Mary Poppins in Mary Poppins Returns. The sequel already boasts an incredibly cast that includes Meryl Streep and Hamilton's Lin-Manuel Miranda, but Blunt has some big shoes to fill after Julie Andrew's originated the role in the 1964 film - not that she's letting her nerves get in the way.

It seems unavoidable that Emily Blunt's daughters will stumble upon The Devil Wears Prada - after all, their father, John Krasinski, has seen it over 70 times - but Blunt is lining up plenty of other movies she can't wait to share with her girls as well. For starters, she's already got a few animated films to her name, but there's also Into the Woods, and, of course, her upcoming starring role in Mary Poppins Returns. I recently sat down with Blunt in New York, where we discussed how being a mom has affected the projects she chooses, working with her husband, and what film she hopes her children never find.

With the question of who's playing James Bond in James Bond 25 unresolved, we look back at the casting conundrums 007 has faced before.
Since 1962, fewer men have played James Bond than have walked on the moon. Despite the relatively long turnaround of the role, the subject of who might follow in the footsteps of Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig in the future has fuelled many column inches and tabloid splashes.
It feels as if speculation about the seventh 007 in Eon Productions' long-lived spy franchise has been at fever pitch since this time last year, when Craig was doing the promotional rounds for Spectre and commented that he would rather “slash [his] wrists” than play Bond again. It's only after a year of constant reports on the subject that his far more optimistic comments at last weekend's New Yorker Festival »

There has been talk of a sequel to the classic 1964 Disney film Mary Poppins for years – not least because that original film is loosely based upon a series of books by P.L. Travers, and there is much more to be mined from that source material. It will not be until December 25th 2018 that it finally arrives on cinema screens, however, as Mary Poppins Returns.
The musical will be directed by Rob Marshall (Into The Woods), from a script by David Magee (Life Of Pi), with original music by Scott Wittman (Hairspray). Set two decades after the events of the first film, Mary Poppins Returns takes place in depression-era London, with siblings Jane and Michael Banks (young children in the first film) struggling in their adult lives – and needing the help of their one-time magical nanny. Emily Blunt stars as Mary Poppins, with Meryl Streep appearing as her cousin, and Lin Manuel-Miranda playing streetlamp lighter, »
