If you ever watched The Devil Wears Prada and thought that the soundtrack could've used more Elton John, then prepare yourself for some very good news. The hit 2006 film starring Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway, inspired by Vogue's notoriously prickly Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour and adapted from Lauren Weisberger's novel, is coming to Broadway. Just like he did for 1997's The Lion King and 2008's Billy Elliot: The Musical (both of which took home the trophy for best musical honors at the Tony Awards, it's worth noting), John will be in charge of scoring the new musical.
"Re-imagining The Devil Wears Prada for the musical theatre is super exciting," the 70-year-old singer said in a statement in January. "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." John will be working alongside lyricist and writer Paul Rudnick and will no doubt ensure the musical is just as fabulous as the film.
