strike Writers Strike Update: Marvel and Lionsgate Sign WGA DealsMarvel Studios and Lionsgate are the latest production houses (or indie studios) to sign interim deals with the Writers Guild of America (WGA), so writers can get back to work on screenplays. Looks like that re-write on Thor can happen; the movie was temporarily shelved due to a script with a $200 to 300 million budget, and a re-write couldn’t take place due to the strike.

Other studios or production houses that have interim deals with the WGA include United Artists, Worldwide Pants (David Letterman’s company), The Weinstein Company and more. A complete list can be found at the link below.

With these high profile deals, along with the very recent Directors Guild of America’s deal (DGA) with the Association of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) and major studios, I think we may see the strike ending soon, in a way that benefits everyone. Plus, the WGA and AMPTP have come back to the table, after talks broke down more than a month ago.
