Gird Your Loins: ‘The Devil Wears Prada’ Is Headed to Broadway
Deadline reports that John will be working with Paul Rudnick to write a musical adaptation of the 2006 film The Devil Wears Prada. John is writing the music while Rudnick is penning the book and lyrics.
The timeline of the project is TBA. It will be produced by Kevin McCollum, Fox Stage Productions, and John’s Rocket Entertainment.
John said in a statement, “Re-imagining The Devil Wears Prada for the musical theatre is super exciting. 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.”
The film, which starred Meryl Streep, Stanley Tucci, and Anne Hathaway was based on Lauren Weisberger’s 2003 novel, which spent six months on The New York Times bestseller list. It brought in $326M worldwide at the box office.
