Hollywood studeos have stated that they will not be giving in to the demands of actors for pay raises, a fact that means that a strike maybe on the horizon.
In a recent statement released by the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers they stated that currently both sides are very far apart on a lot of issues and no end is in site right now.
Actors are demanding increased compensation from DVD and internet sales of work that they are a part of, but the studios have stated that the amount of compensation that the actors are after is too much.
The strike deadline is June 30, and write now with both sides quite far apart on many issues it looks like it may actually happen.
In an attempt to get as much done before that deadline, studios are cranking up production of movies, trying to get as much done before the strike happens.
In a statement to its members, the Screen Actors Guild said: “We are not surprised that the employers dispute the economic hardships actors are facing. You know better.”
