Evan Rachel Wood revealed that the Spider-Man musical will open on Broadway in October in her appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live last Friday.  She was on the show to promote The Wrestler, and Kimmel asked her about her upcoming role in the musical.  “Yes, it opens in October with the director of Across the Universe, who did Lion King on Broadway,” Wood said. 


Wood will play Mary Jane in the musical; the director is Julie Taymor (see “Evan Rachel Wood is Mary Jane”).
