The strike by the union representing 11,500 writers in the entertainment industry, including film and television, has now commenced. This marks the first writers' strike in 15 years and also the first Hollywood strike of any kind in that time period. As a result of this labor dispute, the shooting of the film ‘Heads of State’, featuring Priyanka Chopra and John Cena, was recently halted. The strike was initiated by the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) after failing to reach a new labor agreement with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP).


Reports indicate that due to the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike, Hollywood is set to face a standstill, impacting film and TV production. Production of Heads Of State, featuring Priyanka Chopra alongside Idris Elba and John Cena, is expected to be delayed as Priyanka, a SAG-AFTRA member, cannot work on any project worldwide until an agreement is reached. Insiders suggest the strike may persist until early fall (September).


This writers' strike has significant implications for the entertainment industry, with the union demanding better labor conditions and compensation for its members. The strike's impact extends beyond the immediate halting of productions, affecting the livelihoods of countless professionals involved in the creation of films and television shows. As negotiations between SAG-AFTRA and AMPTP continue, the hope remains that a fair and mutually beneficial agreement can be reached, bringing an end to the strike and allowing the industry to resume its creative endeavors. Until then, the fate of 'Heads of State' and numerous other projects hangs in the balance, awaiting the resolution of this critical labor dispute.


This walkout by the actors is expected to bring a halt to the production of film and scripted television shows across the United States, with the exception of independent productions not covered by labor contracts with unions. However, it is worth noting that online streaming services like Netflix and Amazon are expected to continue providing local language shows produced in countries such as Korea and India. Nevertheless, in Hollywood, the strike has indeed resulted in the suspension of production activities.

As Hollywood grapples with the SAG-AFTRA strike, the industry braces for a significant disruption, potentially lasting until September.
