Spider-Man: The Musical. No, Really.

Bono and The Edge are penning a Broadway musical version of Spider-Man, and auditions are already underway for a first reading, with Julie “Lion King” Taymor set to direct. That this news comes just as April 30-May 6 has been named “Spider-Man 3 Week In NYC” is pure coincidence of course. Producers are said to be looking for an actor in his late teens with a “great pop/rock voice” to play Spidey. Hmm, I know a certain aspiring singer who suddenly has time on his hands.
