U2 stars Bono and The Edge are in negotiations to pen tunes for a planned SPIDER-MAN Broadway, New York, musical.

Fellow Irishman Neil Jordan is onboard to write the story and acclaimed The Lion King director Julie Taymor has signed up to take charge of the ambitious project.

The musical project comes after the Spider-Man sequel smashed opening records at the American box office last weekend (04JUL04).
