Max Martin has written some of the biggest pop songs in history, and now there's a musical being made about the man himself.

Stuart Burt Casting has uploaded a casting call to Twitter that reveals a Max Martin musical in progress.

The casting call asks for performers in their 20s-30s from all ethnic backgrounds. You'll need to be able to sing pop classics insanely well, or be a hip-hop performer who can sing too.

They're also looking for breakdancers and aerial dancers who can also sing to a "high standard".

Songwriter, record producer and singer Max Martin has been responsible for some of the world's biggest pop hits, including Britney Spears' "...Baby One More Time", and Backstreet Boys' "I Want It That Way".

More recently, Martin has contributed his writing or producing to hits such as Katy Perry's "I Kissed A Girl", The Weeknd's "Can't Feel My Face", and Ariana Grande's "Side To Side".

His astounding career has led him to hold over 20 Billboard Hot 100 number-one hits.

The casting call only opened on 31 July, and states it will be opening to the public in July 2019 to tour until the end of 2020.
