It was first a novel, then a film and now it’s headed to Broadway. Yep, “Devil in a Blue Dress” will be getting the theater treatment.

The popular film that starred Denzel Washington and Don Cheadle in 1995 — based on one of Walter Mosley‘s most popular works — is coming to the Great White Way.

“Devil in a Blue Dress” is a noir novel and film about a man in 1948 Los Angeles who lost his aerospace manufacturing job and turns to private detective work.

Mosley revealed the Broadway news when he was promoting his new book, “Debbie Doesn’t Do It Anymore.”

He partnered with Jazz musician and composer Branford Marsalis to bring the work to the stage.

There’s no word on if Washington or Cheadle will reprise their roles from the film, but the production should begin within the next year.
