If you thought a musical based on your friendly neighborhood web-slinger was too good to be true — you may yet be right.
“Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark,” a lavish Broadway-bound musical directed by Julie Taymor (“The Lion King”) and scored by U2’s Bono and The Edge, seems to be caught in a sudden web of financial difficulties. Work has been suspended until cash can begin flowing again.
Casting for Spidey himself hasn’t been announced.
