Calling All Spider-Men

If you can sing, look good in tights, walk on walls and be able to kiss upside down, then here's your chance of a lifetime. Tony Award-winning director Julie Taymor is holding an open casting call this Monday in New York City for her upcoming Broadway musical adaptation of the comic book superhero Spider-Man.

In addition to Peter Parker and Mary Jane (roles that apparently won't be going to Taymor's Across the Universe stars Jim Sturgess and Evan Rachel Wood after all), it sounds like that evil spider-woman character Arachne is still intact (yeah, I know, but remember: this is Julie Taymor we're talking about here).

Music for the unlikely tuner will be by U2's Bono and The Edge. As of now, no timeframe has been announced as to when Spidey will spin his first web on the Great White Way.
