Marvel Studios is developing a Broadway musical based on Spider-Man, to be directed by Tony winner Julie Taymor, with U2's Bono and the Edge creating new music and lyrics for the project, according to The Hollywood Reporter; auditions are now taking place, and a reading is scheduled for the summer.

J.J. Abrams wrote fans at the recent "Grand Slam" SF convention in Burbank, Calif., to promise more news about the movie soon, according to a post on the TrekMovie.com Web site.

SF author Orson Scott Card told IGN.com that a proposed big-screen version of his novel Ender's Game has been put on hold at Warner Brothers, allowing the filmmakers to shop it around to other studios or raise funding independently.
