It seems like an unlikely thing to do but Merry Saltzman, the daughter of Bond film producer Harry Saltzman, is bringing Bond to Broadway.
The show will be called James Bond: The Musical and will feature music and lyrics from Jay Henry Weisz and a book by Dave Clarke.
James Bond: The Musical will have an original storyline, according to producers, featuring “several Bond villains, plus some new ones.”
Merry also told Playbill: “Production schedules and trial runs are still being worked out in anticipation of a late 2017-early 2018 opening,” revealing that the musical will either premiere on Broadway or in Las Vegas.
Casting has yet to be announced.
Meanwhile, Daniel Craig will return as 007 in the 24th Bond film, Spectre, which is set for release on November 6 this year.
