Bono Spider Man Lawsuit
March 4, 2012 by staff
Bono Spider Man Lawsuit, Fired “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” director Julie Taymor took aim today at the musical’s producers and her former creative partners on the show, accusing them in a lawsuit of making her a scapegoat to appease investors anxious about cost-overruns and poor critical response.
U2 singer Bono, who co-wrote the songs for the show, forced the cancellation of a key meeting by showing up “with Christy Turlington and a couple other supermodels, and he had already had a few beers, rendering him useless,” according to an e-mail from Glen Berger, co-author of the book, that Taymor cited in court papers.
The suit was filed today, six weeks after the producers claimed in their own lawsuit that they fired Taymor to save the $75 million show.
In papers filed in federal court in Manhattan, Taymor said that the producers conspired with Berger and the show’s song writers — Bono and The Edge.
Bono and the Edge, she said, were “frequently distracted” in New York, after missing rehearsals and the first month of previews because of a U2 world tour.
