Glee Adds Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark Writer

Glee goes to Broadway in its season finale, and it looks like the show is bringing someone back with it. Deadline reports that writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa -- who most recently rewrote Julie Taymor's book for Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark -- will join Glee's writing staff next season, a notable development since the show has this far generated two years' worth of scripts from only three staff writers: Ryan Murphy, Ian Brennan, and Brad Falchuk. In the meantime, Aguirre-Sacasa has also been signed to script the remake of Carrie, which hopefully won't culminate with a prom performance of Rebecca Black's "Friday" (though that might be equally frightening).
