Elton and Paul Rudnick are writing a musical adaptation for Broadway.

A production timeline is to be announced for the show, which will be produced by Kevin McCollum, Fox Stage Productions and the musician’s Rocket Entertainment

Elton said of the new project: “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. I can’t wait to sink my musical teeth into this hunk of popular culture.”

The movie raked in $326M worldwide, and Lauren Weisberger’s novel spent six months on the New York Times bestseller list.

“To bring The Devil Wears Prada to the stage, we knew we needed to find artists as inimitable as the characters in the story,” Bob Cohen of Fox Stage Productions and McCollum said a joint statement. “We needed artists whose work has run the gamut from music and publishing to drama and fashion. We could think of only two names: Elton John and Paul Rudnick. That’s all!”

John is writing the music, and Rudnick is penning the book and lyrics.
