this is has been going on for while with the 75million dollar production..THATS A HUGE HIT
NEW YORK — Producers of "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" have agreed to pay the hit Broadway musical's former director and co-book writer Julie Taymor royalties as part of a settlement that ends one chapter in the two sides' bitter legal dispute.
The Stage Directors and Choreographers Society and the show's producers, 8 Legged Productions LLC, announced the deal Thursday. No amount was disclosed.
Under the deal, producers have agreed to pay Taymor full royalties as director from the beginning of previews in November 2010 through the run of the Broadway show, however long that is. She was fired in March after years of delays, accidents, critical backlash and ballooning costs that all pushed the show's price tag to a record-setting $75 million.
