NEW YORK (AP) — A settlement has been reached between the producers of the Broadway musical "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" and its fired director, Julie Taymor.
Both sides on Wednesday said in a statement that: "All claims between all of the parties in the litigation have been resolved." No details about the settlement or how it was reached were immediately revealed.
Manhattan federal Judge Katherine Forrest had set a May 27 trial date Thursday after lawyers for Taymor asked that the case move forward because a settlement was never finalized.
Taymor filed a lawsuit in November 2011, saying her copyrighted written works were violated when she was fired last year and the musical's script was rewritten after the $75 million production had trouble getting past previews. It has since become successful.
