Blunt aiming to go into action movies

Blunt aiming to go into action movies

Emily Blunt would love to do an action film and perform her own stunts.

The 'Devil Wears Prada' actress has appeared in a number of movies ranging from sci-fi thrillers to comedies, but admits that she would love to try her hand at something more "actiony."

She told Total Film magazine: "The only thing I haven't done is hang from a building, which I'd quite like to do at some point. Or some wire work - something more actiony."

Emily may be granted her wish as she is in talks to star as a soldier opposite Tom Cruise in alien thriller, 'All You Need Is Kill.'

However, Emily revealed she is ready to take a break from acting.

She said: "Now that I've been doing it for a long time I don't have the desire to be on a film set all the time. I've already got three-movies coming out this year and I feel already that it's a Blunt overload.

"As Marlon Brando said, you've only got so many faces, so don't run out too quick."
