“Spider Man: Turn off the Dark” is up to $51 million in budget. Or $52 million, depending on who’s talking. What’s a million difference among friends?
The troubled show, long anticipated, is also going to take a risk. With the departures of actors Alan Cumming and Evan Rachel Wood, the producers have opted to go with no stars.

This news is added to the previous announcement that little-known Reeve Carney will play Peter Parker aka Spider Man.
