“The Devil Wears Prada” is headed to Broadway.
“Re-imagining The Devil Wears Prada for the musical theatre is super exciting,” John said in a statement. “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 story follows Andy Sachs, played by Hathaway in the film version, a recent college graduate and aspiring journalist who reluctantly takes a job as the assistant to Miranda Priestly (Streep), the tough-as-nails editor-in-chief of fashion magazine Runway.
The new musical will be produced by Kevin McCollum, Fox Stage Productions and Rocket Entertainment.
A production time-line will be announced at a later date.
