Evan Rachel Wood to star in "Spiderman: The Musical"



Actress Evan Rachel Wood has signed to star as Mary Jane Watson in the new Spiderman stage musical.

Two months after the show's director Julie Taymor denied Wood would play the web-slinging superhero's love interest, the actress has confirmed to Moviefone.com she's preparing to make her Broadway debut in the show, which opens in New York February 2010.

She has been forced to pull out of plans to star in movie Sucker Punch to take on the stage project.

The other lead roles, including Peter Parker/Spider-Man, have yet to be cast.

The musical, which will feature tracks by U2 stars Bono and The Edge, will reunite Taymor with Wood - she previously directed the 21 year old in 2007 movie Across The Universe.
