‘The Devil Wears Prada’ could be getting its own musical

A stage adaptation of everyone's favourite guilty pleasure fashion film might be headed for Broadway

Someone get Miranda Priestly on the line. One of fashion's most guilty pleasure filmsThe Devil Wears Prada, is being developed into a stage musical. 

According to Associated Press, Broadway producer Kevin McCollum is working on an adaptation of the 2006 film, which follows Anne Hathaway as Andy Sachs, the unlucky assistant trying to make it in the heartless fashion world.  

Back in 2013, the four-time Emmy winner signed a deal with 20th Century Fox to transform their films for theatre audiences. He's also hoping to bring Mrs. Doubtfire to audiences and is about to premiere a stage adaptation of Ever After – which will probably buy him enough time to decide with all-singing, all-dancing star fits the role of monumental fashion diva and Anna Wintour homage Miranda Priestly.  

We will never forget that moment Andy tells Priestly that she can't tell the different outfits apart. “You know, it’s just that both those belts look exactly the same.” We still get palpitations.

The Devil Wears Prada isn't the only indication that theatre is starting to take its cues from fashion – McQueen, a semi-biographical play about Alexander McQueen, has just opened in London.
