Hollywood actress Gwyneth Paltrow is set to produce a musical about 1980s new wave band, The Go-Go's.

The Hollywood Reporter writes that Paltrow is currently in negotiations for the stage musical and working with prospective co-producers Donovan Leitch and Rick Ferrari.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, The Go-Go's themselves are considering being involved in the musical in some way and may even be writing new songs for the venture.

The Los Angeles band, who are currently on tour in North America, are currently made up of Belinda Carlisle, Jane Wiedlin, Charlotte Caffey, Kathy Valentine and Gina Schock. They formed in 1978 as a punk band.

Their 1980 debut album, 'Beauty and The Beat', has sold over three million copies since its release. They were behind the hit singles 'We Got the Beat' and 'Our Lips Are Sealed' - scroll down to listen - but disbanded in 1985. Singer Carlisle went on to have huge solo success.

The band reformed briefly in 1990 and 1994 and they have now been touring together since 1999. They have released four studio albums, their last being 'God Bless the Go-Go's' in 2001 and last year they received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
