The show may not go on for the sequel to the blockbuster "Spiderman" at least for actor Tobey Maguire.

Tobey apparently has an aching back from the stunts he did in the first "Spiderman" movie and the riding he did as a jockey in his upcoming movie "Seabiscuit."

If he hasn't recuperated by April 12th when he's scheduled to start shooting the Spider-Man sequel, he might have to drop out and lose his 17 million-dollar salary.

Jake Gyllenhaal who is best known from his role as "Bubble Boy" is said to be ready to take over if Maguire can't play Spiderman.

Jake just happens to be dating Spiderman's girlfriend, Kirsten Dunst.
