The looming writers strike can take full effect on November 1st, nearly a week away, if the writers choose to walk away from the bargaining table. Guild members (WGA) voted overwhelmingly last week to authorize a strike if a new contract couldn't be worked out with the studios and networks which comes into effect when Halloween officially ends. As such, Hollywood executives are entering a state of general chaos over films they were hoping to have completed by the June 2008 deadline (when all parties must reach an agreement). You readers know a lot of the films getting rushed into production by the recent news over the past month. Nearly every article had the words "They hope to get it filmed before June 2008" inside it somewhere.
Well, the L.A Times just published an article featuring the movies which could be affected should this walk-out actually happen in November. Movies such as G.I Joe, Wolverine, State of Play, Night at the Museum 2 and many more. Basically, the studios are kicking it into overdrive over the last few weeks trying to polish any and all scripts by November 1st in hopes of being production ready before any possible walk-out.
