Bono and The Edge will write music for an upcoming 'Spider-Man' Broadway musical.
Rehearsals for the musical, to be directed by Julie Taymor, begin on July 2, but producers are still looking for someone to play the lead role of Peter Parker/Spidey.
This comes more than a decade after the band last contributed music to the story of a comic book hero – 'Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me' was one of the lead tracks on 1995's 'Batman Forever' soundtrack.
Undercover's Suggestions For Spider-Man-Suitable U2 Songs*:
'I Fall Down (…cos my web broke)'
'I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For (…even though I have, like, nine eyes)'
'Running To Stand Still (…on my eight legs)'
'The Fly (…I ate this morning gave me gas)'
'Daddy's Gonne Pay For Your Crashed Car (…cos I jumped out from behind the sun shade)'
'Wake Up Dead Man (…I didn't mean to bite you)'
'Stuck In A Web You Can't Get Out Of'
