The Devil Wears Prada musical in the works

Meryl Streep's hit fashion film The Devil Wears Prada is heading to the stage.

Tony Award-winning producer Kevin McCollum revealed he is in the process of turning the hit 2006 movie into a musical, thanks to his recent partnership with 20th Century Fox bosses.


The Devil Wears Prada, which featured Anne Hathaway playing the assistant to Streep's insufferable fashion magazine boss, grossed $324 million at the worldwide box office, and earned Streep an Oscar nomination for Best Actress.


McCollum is one of the leading producers on Broadway, with recent credits including Sting's The Last Ship, In The Heights, Avenue Q, and Motown: The Musical.


He is currently working on the stage adaptations of films Ever After and Diary of a Wimpy Kid.


McCollum also hopes to turn Robin Williams' beloved comedy Mrs. Doubtfire into a stage show under his partnership with 20th Century Fox.
