News has just broken that Sir Elton John has teamed up with Hollywood writer Paul Rudnick for a new musical of The Devil Wears Prada. The new production will be based on the 2003 book by Lauren Weisberger and the 2006 film which starred Meryl Streep as fierce magazine editor Miranda Priestly and Anne Hathaway as her long suffering assistant Andrea Sachs
Sir Elon said he can't wait to "sink his musical teeth" into the project and that 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.
Elton has extensive experience in musical theatre having written Toy Award winning The Lion King in 1997 and Billy Elliot: The Musical in 2008.
Casting details and an idea of the date of the musical's Broadway opening are yet to be confirmed.
