We’re one step closer to a Broadway diva belting the chronicles of cerulean. Elton John and playwright/essayist Paul Rudnick are at work to bring The Devils Wears Prada to the stage. The two will pen a Broadway musical adaptation of Lauren Weisberger’s 2003 novel and the subsequent 2006 film from 20th Century Fox.

“Re-imagining The Devil Wears Prada for the musical theater is super exciting,” John, whose previous Broadway musicals include Aida, The Lion King and Billy Elliot, 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."
