Variety‘s Adam Dawtrey on Curb Your Enthusiasm helmer Robert Weide planning to direct a Vanity Fair version of Devil Wears Prada. The feature, Weide’s first, will be based on Toby Young‘s “How to Lose Friends and Alienate People“, about his none-too-politically-successful stab at working for VF as a contributing editor in Manhattan several years ago. Shaun of the Dead‘s Simon Pegg will play Young; the part of VF editor Graydon Carter — the character will be called Clayton Harding, an editor of a fictional monthly called Sharps who will presumably share certain Type A characteristics with Meryl Streep‘s fashion magazine editor — isn’t yet cast. I missed a party for Young thrown by the L.A. Press Club three or four weeks ago, and I haven’t read his book either. The script adaptation is by Peter Straughan. The producers are Stephen Woolley and Elizabeth Karlsen of Number 9 Films.
