Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, a Broadway musical based on everyone’s favorite web-slinging superhero, has nabbed Bono and the Edge of U2 for its soundtrack. Set for a February 2010 opening at the Hilton Theatre, the show will be directed by Julie Taymor of The Lion King and feature the area’s most expensive production ever (around $40 million). No details on casting yet, although Tobey Maguire is on tap for the fourth Spider-Man film, which is planned for a 2011 release.
