A new musical based on the United Kingdoms super spy James Bond is reportedly being prepped for a Broadway run. According to a recent Playbill interview with producer Merry Saltzman, the daughter of Bond producer Harry Saltzman this musical will be shaken, but not stirred.
Saltzman says she’s grabbed the rights for a stage production of James Bond: The Musical, which is being prepared with a score by Jay Henry Weisz and book by Dave Clarke. Saltzman revealed that her ideal opening slot for this musical would be sometime in the 2017-18 season, either on Broadway or in Las Vegas (arguably the Broadway of southern Nevada).
Additional details from the interview revealed that the show, if it comes to fruition, would not recycle a storyline from one of Bond’s past outings but would employ a combination of familiar and new Bond villains, as well as “our own Bond girl.”
