According to reports, a deal between the Screen Actors Guild and studeos has still not been reached.
SAG’s TV/theatrical contract expires at the end of the month, and with no deal in site, it is a pretty safe bet that come the end of June, we will have another strike on our hands.
The writers strike that lasted for more than 100 days, cost Hollywood millions of dollars, thus if an actors strike was to take place, the financial loss would be huge.
In a push to settled before the end of the month, actors are pushing for a yes vote on a new AFTRA brokered primetime/TV contract, one that was recently endorsed by Tom Hanks.
SAG’s chief negotiator Doug Allen stated recently that he is of the belief that talks between both sides will continue past the June 30th deadline.
“The negotiations stalled at almost the exact time that SAG began its anti-AFTRA campaign, and they’re clearly focused on waiting until July 7 to see the results of the ratification vote,” the studios said in a statement.
AFTRA reached its own deal with Hollywood studeos back on May 28.
