The 1993 musical, led by Chita Rivera, was itself based on the 1976 novel by Manuel Puig and the 1985 movie, starring William Hurt and Raul Juila

Set in an Argentinian prison in 1981, "Kiss of the Spider Woman" centres on Luis Molina, a gay hairdresser arrested for “corruption of a minor”. Molina imagines stories starring Aurora (Lopez) — a vampy film diva. Molina’s prison life is complicated when he is forced to share his cell with Marxist political prisoner Valentin Arregui Paz.

The makers are currently searching for an actor to play Molina. The project is expected to start production in April in New Jersey.

It will be produced by Barry Josephson, Tom Kirdahy, Greg Yolen and Matt Geller with Lopez, Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas and Benny Medina executive producing on behalf of Nuyorican Productions.
