Making Money off Sprider-Man? At Least One Person's Doing It!
Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark has become famous, or maybe infamous, in theater circles for the large number of injuries its cast has suffered. But the show may be more famous for the amount of money it burned through over the course of its development -- now said to be around $70 million. But there is definitely one man who is profiting off of this whole debacle. That would be Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who reworked Julie Taymour's book and vision for the show. His profit, though, is not strictly financial. While Julie Taymour's career is certainly in the tubes for at least the short term, Mr. Aguirre-Sacasa's career is taking off after this show. His next project is to rework a musical of Carrie that famously flopped, as well as becoming a writer and executive producer on the TV hit Glee. For more information, check out the article below!
