Universal To Chase Harry Winston

Universal Pictures has picked up the rights to “The Devil Wears Prada” author Lauren Weisberger’s best-seller “Chasing Harry Winston” for Mandalay Pictures says the trades.

The story follows three women in New York — a daughter of a supermodel, a rising star in the publishing business and a newly single female — who vow to change their lives for the better in the course of a year.

The movie adaptation will focus and expand upon one of the three story lines. Andy Tennant (“Hitch,” “Fool’s Gold”) is attached to direct the adaptation, which Gina Wendkos (“Princess Diaries,” “Coyote Ugly”) will write.
