Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark Producers Talk Production Woes

spider man turn off the dark producers talk production woes

It's been a long, tough, challenging, and DANGEROUS road for the Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark team!

The producers behind the cursed project have opened up, for the first time, about the treacherous road they've traveled with this production.

Here's what producer Jeremiah "Jere" Harris had to say about it:

“There's nothing easy on this show. From the time he and I took over and got involved, this has been a constant battle from every perspective.”

More from producer Michael Cohl:

“[The original story] was muddled [and] difficult to follow. It lacked emotion. It lacked spirit and sincerity."

"The reorganization makes it feel really good. The flying, the special effects, the beauty of the show, the Julie atmosphere and attitude — it's all staying."

"I am not the least bit embarrassed by any of this. And I know Jere isn't either. We tried to do something that's ambitious to the third power."

We certainly give them credit for taking on such an ambitious project, and we'd give them EVEN MORE credit if people hadn't been injured during the process.

Let's just hope it's smooth sailing from here on out…and we know that's A LOT to hope for!

    All I hear about this play is bad stuff. Why don't they just close it? I always have to walk by it when I go to school and all I think is, "really?"

    I really wish you could stop covering this. It's not celebrity gossip, and no one cares, anyway.
