Julie Taymore Spidey Lawsuit Goes To Court

Oh, the tangled webs we weave!

He's defeated Green Goblin and Doc Octopus, but Spider-Man's most persistent foe appears to be a U.S. District Court.

Julie Taymor's ongoing lawsuit against Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark is, well, ongoing!

You might remember when the original writer/creator was canned from the $75 mil production last year or when she filed suit claiming copyright infringement of original work soon thereafter.

Gah! We thought that we had heard the last of all of the Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark drama!

Julie Taymor Has FINALLY Reached A Settlement Agreement With Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark Producers!!!

spider man settlement reached

Excuse us for a second, while we take a deep breath before we recap the Julie Taymor/Spider-Man lawsuit saga…….

Back in November, Julie Taymor filed a lawsuit against the Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark producers for violating her "creative rights as an author" of the play…and for failing to compensate her "for their continued use of her work to date."

Then, the producers released a statement in which they fired back at Julie, claiming they'd already been trying to resolve everything with her out of court.

THEN, Julie put collaborators Bono and The Edge on blast, asserting that they used her as a scapegoat to escape the bad press they were receiving for all of the show's injuries and delays.

But of course ex-director Julie Taymor is suing the producers, trying to make sure any footage of her never sees the light of day.

Uh-oh! We had a feeling that this whole mess was going to be a little less-than-amicable, but looks like someone isn't wasting any time!

Julie Taymor filed a lawsuit last week regarding her abrupt firing as director from the so-bad-it's-just-bad, accident-prone, $65 million musical Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark, under claims that the production has infringed upon her creative input, and now, she's lashing out at her collaborators, Bono and The Edge, and asserts that they used her as a scapegoat to escape the bad press they were receiving for all of the injuries and delays!
