'The Devil Wears Prada' Musical Is Coming And Elton John Is Writing It
"That's all."
Comments

The Devil Wears Prada stage musical is officially heading to Broadway. Per The Hollywood Reporter, Elton John and Paul Rudnick are writing the musical adaptation of the 2006 movie, in which Meryl Streep's Anna Wintour-inspired fashion editor terrorized—and mentored—a meek assistant played by Anne Hathaway.

The musical will reportedly be based as much on Lauren Weisberger's best-selling 2003 novel as on the movie. There's no word yet on who could possibly be stepping in to fill Streep's shoes.

"Reimagining The Devil Wears Prada for the musical theater is super exciting," said Elton John. "I'm a huge fan of both the book and the feature film and a huge aficionado of the fashion world. I can't wait to sink my musical teeth into this hunk of popular culture."

John, of course, has a long history of penning successful Broadway musicals—The Lion King and Billy Elliot are among his back catalog—while Rudnick wrote the musical adaptation of Sister Act.
