The Devil Wears Prada to make its musical debut on Broadway?
Is Meryl Streep about to reprise her iconic role?
The Broadway producer Kevin McCollum, who is the man behind hit shows such as Rent and Avenue Q has revealed to The Hollywood Reporter that he has partnered with movie giant 20th Century Fox to transform some of its most iconic films for the stage.
The first project in the new partnership will see McCollum turn the 2006 Robin Williams film Mrs. Doubtfire into a stage musical. The Devil Wears Prada is also on the list, but whether its A-list cast will reprise their iconic roles on the stage is yet to be confirmed. But there is hope...
In 2012, Meryl Streep revealed in an interview that she would consider returning as the fearsome magazine editor Miranda Priestly if a sequel were to be made, following the release of writer Lauren Weisberger's follow-up novel Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns. The iconic actress was also joined by Emily Blunt in her keenness to reprise the fictional editorial team, saying: "I think I would do it. We all were told to go on these skinny diets for the first time, but I'd be up for it."
The film's lead, Anne Hathaway, is currently starring in a stage production of her own – Grounded at the Public Theatre. She won an Oscar for her incredible big screen musical performance in Les Miserables in 2013, and she wowed the world with her singing prowess in the comical U.S TV show Lip Sync Battle.
