Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark Reportedly Considering a Co-Director [Updated]

According to the New York Post, producers of the continuously delayed Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark have reached out to Phil McKinley, director of the Tony-winning play The Boy From Oz, to discuss a deal that could make him a co-director, alongside Julie Taymor, of the show. (Spider-Man also just hired Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa to fix the script.) McKinley previously directed the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, so he might be able to handle this. [NYP]

Update: Spider-Man's tireless spokesperson Rick Miramontez reached out to tell Vulture, "There is no truth to the rumor of a co-director. The production has not brought anyone on and the original creative team remains firmly in place, with Julie Taymor at the helm."
