After Edge of Tomorrow and her delightful work with precocious moppet Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt has been offered an even higher profile nanny gig. She's reportedly in talks with Disney to take over the beloved role of Mary Poppins, everyone's favorite au pair that's also a frighteningly powerful witch. Blunt's Into the Woods director is helming the new Mary Poppins, which it's said is not a remake of the 1964 film but a sequel set two decades after the original--focusing on the children of the now-adult tykes from the original. It's not yet clear if we'll be seeing the return of Bert, the jovial Cockney tramp Mary used to fuck once the kids were knocked out on NyQuil.
