6 movies whose productions stopped due to the actors’ strike!
In the wake of the various protests and demonstrations that are currently taking place, various film production processes have finally stopped. 2023 is indeed a new year for the Hollywood film industry after they haven’t been able to do much in recent years due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. Many film production and release processes had to be temporarily suspended and rescheduled because of this.
In 2023, the film industry has started to stretch again, as evidenced by the release of several very epic film titles since the beginning of the year. However, in the middle of this year, there was an event that brought the film industry to a standstill again. Since the last few months, film and television writers have decided to go on strike and hold demonstrations. The authors are demanding an increase in payment terms and have several other demands as well.
The effects of the writers’ strike made the production process difficult, where many film projects ended up having to improvise in the middle of it. Some even decided to postpone the production process. Now, in addition to the writers, the actors also participate in this rally to support fellow writers. This is, of course, a huge hurdle for many film projects that are currently in the production process.
It is known that there are at least six movie titles whose production process has been halted due to a strike by actors and writers. They are Beetlejuice 2, Mortal Kombat 2, Gladiator 2, Mission: Impossible 8, Venom 3, and most recently Deadpool 3. According to a BBC report, this is the most severe strike by TV and film writers in six decades. .
The report noted that there were about 11,500 people from the Writers Guild of America who had protested since last May. And approximately 160,000 actors and actresses have decided to stop working following in the footsteps of these writers as of midnight yesterday. Several events such as red carpet events, Emmy Awards, even Comic-Con currently have to be postponed and rescheduled.
As of now, it is not known how long the protests and demonstrations will last. And so far there has been no response from various production houses related to this massive demonstration. What is clear is that several production processes for TV shows and movies have had to be stopped and delayed due to the demonstration. Let’s wait for the latest news on this massive strike, Geeks!
