Could Another Strike Be Looming?
I really wish I could tell you the answer to that question is no, but I can’t.
Negotiations are set to begin later this month between producers and the Screen Actors Guild. The SAG contract expires June 30th.
Last month, AFTRA, which represents a limited number of actors, decided to negotiate separately from SAG since they were fed up with SAG’s delay in getting to the table. The move—and SAG’s nasty reaction to it—is not a good sign.
Movie studios are already canceling projects that can’t be completed by June 30th.
Obviously, I sincerely hope this doesn’t happen, or it could seriously put the fall season in jeopardy.
