Evan Rachel Wood
Evan Rachel Wood, who was originally cast to play Mary Jane Watson in Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark, has dropped out of the Broadway musical because of scheduling conflicts, Entertainment Weekly reports.
"Casting is under way to find a new Mary Jane to join the rest of the cast in the production. Spider-Man will announce a new timeline shortly," a rep for the show tells EW.

Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark, would have reteamed the 22-year-old actress with her Across the Universe director, Julie Taymor. Taymor, best known for bringing The Lion King to the Great White Way in 1997, is directing the production, which features music and lyrics by U2's Bono and The Edge.
Wood, along with Alan Cumming, signed on to the musical in June 2009.
Despite the musical's star power both onstage and behind-the-scenes, Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark has been plagued with financial and other difficulties for months. In January, producers indefinitely pushed back previews of the show, which were scheduled to begin Feb. 25. A new opening date has not been announced.
Wood was most recently seen in the film Whatever Works and on the small screen in Season 2 of True Blood.
Calls to Wood's rep were not immediately returned.
