James Bond on Broadway

(From Daily Mail) James Bond is to be made into a musical featuring several famous villains – and a soundtrack from a country singer.

The show will make 007 tread the boards for the first time in a bold production that is already raising eyebrows among fans.

It will feature a new Bond Girl, an original storyline and could open on either Las Vegas or Broadway in New York.

Executive producer Merry Saltzman, the daughter of Bond film producer Harry Saltzman, told Playbill that she had secured the rights to stage the show.

It will provisionally be titled: ‘James Bond: The Musical’ and will be written by novelist Dave Clarke, best known for his romance mystery ‘Keeping Hannah Waiting’.

The music and lyrics will be by songwriter and composer Jay Henry Weisz, who has described his style as ‘folk rock’ and said he is inspired by Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen.
