Producers of musical "Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark" are struggling to find a home for show in London.

The blockbuster musical's producers Michael Cohl and Jeremiah J. Harris have been scouting venues in London for the musical, but no West End theatres are suitable or big enough to accommodate the large scale production with many high-flying special effects.

"Michael Cohl and Jeremiah Harris would like to mount a production in London, but there simply isn't a theatre that can handle the size of Spider-Man," Rick Miramontez, a spokesperson for the production, told

"They remain optimistic that something can work out at some point," Miramontez added.

Featuring a score by Bono and the Edge, the musical follows the story of New York high school student Peter Parker who gains super powers and is forced to fight against evil Green Goblin.

The multi-million-dollar musical is currently running at Broadway's Foxwoods Theatre starring Reeve Carney as the leading role.
