Director Julie Taymor could leave Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark following current negotiations with the show's producers.

According to the New York Times, Taymor is in talks with the producers about either working with a larger creative team or departing the Broadway production.

The director recently admitted that the show is "not quite" where it needs to be in order to find success on Broadway.

Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark has faced several issues since its conception, including performer injuries and alleged safety violations.

Taymor and her musical collaborators Bono and The Edge of U2 are currently in talks to rework the show's music and story with new collaborators.
