A new choreographer is joining the much-delayed $65 million "Spider-Man" musical on Broadway.

The producers announced Thursday that choreographer Chase Brock would join the creative team. Brock replaces Daniel Ezralow.

Earlier this month the producers removed Tony Award winner Julie Taymor as director and announced a sixth delay in the show's opening.

"Spider-Man's" official opening is now set for June 14.

Producers Michael Cohl and Jeremiah J. Harris said in a statement that they were looking for a choreographer with theater and opera experience who specializes in "cutting-edge contemporary dance."

They said other revisions to the show will include new songs and changes to the script.

"Spider-Man" features music by U2's Bono and The Edge.

The show has been in previews since November. Reviews have been largely negative.
