Eleven years after The Devil Wears Prada first came into our lives, it’s now being turned into a stage show.
She manages to get 'the job millions of girls would kill for' as a junior personal assistant job at a fashion magazine
Following months of speculation, it’s finally been confirmed that Sir Elton John, producer Kevin McCollum and Paul Rudnick have signed on with Fox Stage Productions to pen a stage musical based on the 2006 blockbuster we know and love.
Elton John, who is no stranger to the theatre world having written music for the likes of Billy Elliot and The Lion King, said: “I’m a huge fan of both the book and the feature film, and a huge aficionado of the fashion world.”
The film is based on the 2003 novel penned by Lauren Weisberger, and follows aspiring journalist Andrea Sachs, who is played by Anne Hathaway, as she finds her feet in the unfamiliar world of an elite fashion magazine.
The young journalist manages to get 'the job millions of girls would kill for' as a junior personal assistant job at fashion magazine Runway.
At first she fits in poorly with her gossipy, fashion-conscious fellow employees.
However, with the help of art director Nigel, who’s played with Stanely Tucci, who lends her some designed clothes, she gradually begins to show her commitment to the position.
And let’s not forget her scary boss, the terrifying and icy editor-in-chief Miranda Priestly, played by Meryl Streep, who does everything in her path to push her to her limits.
Casting details are yet to be confirmed, and no timeline for the project has been announced but the play will be developed for Broadway. Let's hope it comes to the West End too!
