An Aggregated Oral History of 2009 Films Ruined By the Last WGA Strike

18 April 2017 12:51 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The last time Hollywood writers walked out seeking a better deal, there were consequences for several tentpoles and would-be franchises.

Hollywood is facing the threat of another Writers’ Guild Strike, one which would immediately stop all writing and rewriting on guild signatory productions — essentially everything from the major studios. So far, negotiations have been contentious, with the WGA arguing that though the business has seen record profits, the average writer’s income has declined in this boom period. And yet, at the bargaining table, the AMPTP — who represent the producers — came offering not gains, but rollbacks. They basically asked the writers to accept less than their current contracts.

The total cost of what the writers are asking for is not particularly excessive. For instance, the cost to Disney would be $21.2 million a year — barely more than half of Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger’s $43.9 million salary last year. I don’t want to get too far »

How Hollywood may be headed for a writers' strike, and why

3 April 2017 1:08 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Harrison Apr 4, 2017

Why are there rumblings of a new writers' strike in Hollywood, and what are the main issues?

In November 2007, the Writers Guild of America voted to go on strike for fairer payment in relation to studio profits from new media. The Guild represents around 13,000 film and television writers and the 100 day strike led to around 60 TV shows shutting down production altogether, as the steady flow of scripts dried up and other unions refused to cross the picket line, before a deal was agreed in February 2008.

Older readers may remember the 2007-8 television season for shortened episode orders on shows like Lost and Heroes – some will argue that the latter show never recovered the creative heights of its debut year after the truncated second season. You may also remember various half-baked blockbusters that came out in summer 2009, many of which went into production without a completed script, or »
