The Writers Guild of America mass strike, which began in early May for the first time in 15 years, is still active. Screenwriters on Hollywood’s biggest projects are demanding revised working conditions, higher salaries, opposition to artificial intelligence, extra pay for high views, money for unapproved scripts, a share of the profits from webcasts and other privileges. . The streaming giants (Netflix, Amazon, Apple, Disney, Warner Bros. Discovery, NBC Universal, Paramount and Sony) don’t want to listen to them. The negotiations did not lead to any solution. As a result, now screenwriters are sabotaging work, because of which the Hollywood film industry is losing about $30 million (2.4 billion rubles) per day.

Due to the fact that thousands (!) of screenwriters in a single impulse came out to remember each other, many popular projects that are in production have been stopped. Of those who are known for sure – Stranger Things, a Game of Thrones spin-off called A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms: The Knight of the Hedge, the superhero comic Daredevil, a remake of the vampire action movie Blade , the second season of the television series adaptations of the game The Last of Us, the next season of Rings of Power and The Mandalorian, the Batman spin-off on Penguin and many other projects, including even late-night shows (Jimmy Fallon, For example).

When all this will end and how it will end, no one can say. It is only known that the previous strike 15 years ago lasted 100 days and brought losses to the industry of 3 billion dollars.
