Elton John is developing a Broadway adaptation of The Devil Wears Prada.
Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway starred in the 2006 film about an intern working for a difficult fashion magazine editor, and now the Rocket Man singer and playwright Paul Rudnick are trying to duplicate the film’s success on Broadway – as a new musical.
A production start date has yet to be determined, but John is thrilled to be working on the project.
“Re-imagining The Devil Wears Prada for the musical theatre is super exciting,” he says. “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.”
