At least nobody is likely to get hurt this time around…unless one of the lawyer's accidentally shuts a briefcase on someone's hand. LOLz!
To recap, back in June, the Stage Directors and Choreographers Society filed an arbitration claim against Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark producers on behalf of Julie Taymor.
The union claimed that Julie was owed approximately $300,000 in royalties, despite the fact that she was fired from the production.
Now, the union claims that Julie is owed $500K+ in royalties, and we're hearing that arbitrator George Nicolau will explore the following issues:
- Producers' contractual obligation to pay Julie Taymor
- Producers' grounds for firing her
Let's just hope they get this all figured out soon! We've seriously had enough Spider-Man musical dramz for one lifetime!
Who do U think should win this case? Julie Taymor or the show producers???
