U2′s Bono and The Edge will appear in court on May 28th, along with the other producers of the Broadway musical Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, as they battle original director Julie Taymor. Taymor, who was fired from show in March 2011 when it seemed to be headed for disaster, filed suit in November 2011 against the musicians and producers, claiming that they were making money off her ideas and script and that she was owed $1 million. The producers countersued, claiming she had been fired for breach of contract.

Although some settlements have been reached, Taymor is still fighting for creative control of the show in the future. Although it received mostly negative reviews — many of them centered on the music by the U2 team — the $75 million Spider-Man became a Broadway hit, pulling down $1 million a week in ticket sales.
