Wood Walks Out Of Spider-man Stage Spectacular

The much-anticipated SPIDER-MAN musical has been hit with another major blow - the project's star, EVAN RACHEL WOOD, has quit.
The Broadway stageshow, titled Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, has been hit with a series of problems and delays in the past six months - and now Wood has walked over a scheduling conflict, forcing producers to find a new Mary Jane.
Previews were expected to begin last month (Feb10), but now the production is not expected to make its debut until the end of the summer (10).
A financial problem temporarily shut down production in August (09), just two months after Wood confirmed she'd be playing Spider-Man's love interest in the Julie Taymor musical, which features music from U2's Bono and The Edge.
Alan Cumming has been cast as the musical’s villain, the Green Goblin, while newcomer Reeve Carney will play the superhero's alter-ego Peter Parker in the production.
