The latest adaptation from movie theaters to the world of the theatrical stage may be stunning to some: a musical version of "The Devil Wears Prada" is coming. The daunting production should be in good hands, though, as legendary artist Elton John will be responsible for scoring the music.

Behind the adaptation

"The Devil Wears Prada" musical has actually been in development for some time, although progress has felt slow to the film's many fans. The adaptation was announced back in May 2015, with the hiring of Elton John being one of the first major moves of the production. While he scores the show, the lyrics will be supplied by Paul Rudnick, whose most famous production may be "The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told."

Elton John, of course, has some experience helping franchises move from the world of movies to the world of the stage.

In 1997, he brought classic animated film "The Lion King" to the stage and he did the same in 2008 with "Billy Elliot." Both went on to win the Tony Award for Best Musical, a fate the producers of "The Devil Wears Prada" would love to see replicated once more.

Movie and musician

For those who don't remember, "The Devil Wears Prada" was a comedy/drama film from 2006, starring Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway. The film took a magnifying glass to the fashion journalism industry, with Streep's character being based off of famed Vogue editor Anna Wintour. The film was extremely popular, having been adapted itself from a 2003 book by Lauren Weisberger. Therefore, the musical adaptation will be the second jump the work has taken in its lifetime.

Meanwhile, Elton John is working just as hard as he was decades ago, when he was at the height of his popularity.

His 32nd studio album came out less than a year ago and he's set to have a role in the movie "Kingsman: The Golden Circle" later this year. He's planning on scoring a production that doesn't have any actors or any known timeline yet, but in his hands, "The Devil Wears Prada" musical should take the same form as his other theatrical hits.
