She's ruthless, demanding, impossible to work for and oh so fascinating. I'm talking about the real life Anna Wintour, editor in chief of Vogue fashion magazine. She's already been made infamous from multiple sources. First, a book written by Lauren Weisberger in 2003; then the adaptation of that book to the big screen which debuted this past June. You may have heard of it ...The Devil Wears Prada? The character of Miranda Priestly, portrayed by Meryl Streep (she just received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress in a Comedy for it) is a fictionalized version of Ms. Wintour. So, what could be better than getting to know this real life fashion diva?

R.J. Cutler and A&E IndieFilm -- the now 2-year-old production company who also produced Jesus Camp and Murderball -- are teaming up to make a documentary about this fascinating woman. Cutler, who is also directing the film, approached Wintour who then collaborated with him on how to approach the documentary. The two decided that the most fascinating approach would be to document Wintour's role in creating the September Vogue issue -- fashion's Bible issue.

There is definitely a large audience for this type of film. The Devil Wears Prada received great reviews and grossed over $124 million in box office sales. Cutler points out to Variety that television audiences have even embraced their very own Anna Wintour character in the new hit series Ugly Betty.

I certainly can't wait to see the film. I collect fashion magazines the way kids collected pogs in the early 90's. They're displayed as part of my collection on my bookshelves. Unfortunately, we have to wait until 2008 for the pic to debut. What is our consolation then? Watching The Devil Wears Prada while flipping through old issues of Vogue.
