It’s a musical journey: Edge and Bono team up for Spider-Man

Move over Sir Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber. While we were away (celebrating a birthday among other things), the first bit of real news in a while popped up on the newswires. It appears The Bono and The Edge are keen to conquer Broadway. They are writing music and lyrics for a Spider-Man musical, Marvel Studios announced on Friday.

The show will be directed by Julie Taymor (The Lion King, Titus). Auditions are already taking place, and a reading is scheduled for July.

It’ll be interesting to see how Team The Fly tackles this one!
