There have been a lot of '90s and '00s reboots as of late, but this one might take the cake. (Sorry, Saved by the Bell.) The Devil Wears Prada is becoming a musical -- and that's not the most exciting part of all. Apparently, Sir Elton John will be joining the project to help bring it to life.

  • The 2006 film is set to hit the stage next summer in the form of a musical adaptation.

    E! News reports the musical will debut at Chicago's James M. Nederlander Theatre on July 14 and run through August 17. Producer Kevin McCollum recently explained to the Chicago Tribune how imperative it is for The Devil Wears Prada musical to premiere in the Windy City.

    "It was important to Anna that we premiere in Chicago," McCollum told the publication about the wishes of the musical's director, Anna D. Shapiro.

    Although we don't know too many deets about the upcoming musical, E! News also reports that Elton John will provide the music with Shaina Taub handling the lyrics.

    Should be good!

    Facebook comments

    Although some peeps are hesitant to jump for joy, the general reaction about The Devil Wears Prada musical has been pretty positive.

    We haven't been this excited since we heard Magic Mike is headed to Broadway.

  • "That's all."

    ... for now.

    Tickets for The Devil Wears Prada musical will go on sale October 6. There's no word if the show will ever head to New York City, so we have to stay tuned.
