A production timeline for the musical, produced by Kevin McCollum, Fox Stage Productions and Rocket Entertainment, has yet to be announced. John will be handling the production's music, while Rudnick leads the charge on book and lyrics. 

"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," John said in a statement. "I can't wait to sink my musical teeth into this hunk of popular culture."

"To bring The Devil Wears Prada to the stage, we knew we needed to find artists as inimitable as the characters in the story," said Bob Cohen of Fox Stage Productions and Kevin McCollum. "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!"
