Wood Fielding Film Offers After Spider-man Musical Trouble?

EVAN RACHEL WOOD's agents are reportedly desperate to win back a number of film roles the actress turned down to work on stalled Broadway musical SPIDER-MAN as rumours continue to swirl about the troubled stage show.
The Wrestler star was due to tread the boards in the new production early next year (10), but work on the play has been suspended as producers at Hello Entertainment battle financial problems.
Claims the Spider-Man spectacular, which will feature music written by U2 stars Bono and The Edge, has been scrapped altogether were blasted by the show's bosses on Wednesday (12Aug09) amid rumours the cast and crew had been released from their contracts.
A spokesperson for the production told WENN: "Hello Entertainment is aware of the speculation about the future of Spider-Man on Broadway and is re-confirming that the plan is to resume production shortly and preview on February 25th, 2010 at the Hilton Theatre when cash flow issues have been resolved."
But according to the New York Post, Wood will not be part of the line-up when the musical resumes production.
The newspaper alleges the actress snubbed several film roles to commit to the New York show, but now Spider-Man appears to be in trouble, she wants to claim those projects back.
An insider tells the publication, "As far as they're concerned, it's over. She's available for other work."
