Julie Taymor has settled her blockbuster lawsuit over her exit from Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark, the most expensive production in Broadway history.
The Academy Award-nominated director sued last November, alleging that producers including Michael Cohl's 8 Legged Productions continued to make use of her creative contributions even after she left. After the lawsuit was filed, 8 Legged Productions brought counterclaims that stated she failed to live up to her obligations on the high-profile show.
Attorneys for both sides informed a New York federal court that an agreement had been reached. On Thursday, the judge directed the clerk to discontinue the case without prejudice. Terms of the settlement aren't yet known.
More to come.
