Hot Damn — Spidey Musical Gets A Date

Rev up your snapping fingers and web-shooters - the multi-million dollar Spider-Man musical, "Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark," has a date.

The musical, allegedly costing $31 million, is all set to launch on February 18, 2010. Which means they have a full year to tweak the laser show and high wire flying Spidey (I'm assuming that's where the money will be spent).

Actress Evan Rachel Wood is signed on as Mary Jane and working with Across The Universe director Julie Taymor to bring this giant act to light (please get co-star Jim Sturgess for the role of Peter Parker). The score was dreamed up by U2's Bono and Edge, but we've yet to hear anything as of right now - but fingers crossed it's at least catchy.
