Update on the Upcoming Spider-Man Musical

Variety reports that producer Tony Adams and Marvel Comics are looking to take the comic book-turned-hit-movie Spider-Man franchise and fashion it into a musical.

Adams and Marvel are in talks with an eclectic group to make Spidey sing. If all goes as planned, book writer would be Neil Jordan (“The Crying Game”), and songwriters Bono and the Edge of U2. Julie Taymor is on board to direct.

Taymor is represented on Broadway with “The Lion King,” which consistently tops the box office chart after nearly seven years and is a regular sellout.
