Elton John writing new musical based on The Devil Wears Prada

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.
