Playbill.com has reported that a settlement between Julie Taymor and the producers of Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark may have reached a settlement deal regarding her attachment to the musical.
The suit began when, in November 2011, Taymor filed a suit against the show’s producers, saying the producers “violated her creative rights and did not compensate her for her work on the musical.”
The producers responded to this suit with a suit of their own — this time citing a breach of contract, stating that Taymor refused “to fulfill her contractual obligations, declaring that she could not and would not do the jobs that she was contracted to do.”
