WGA, AMPTP Contract Talks Suspended For One Week
A billion-dollar merger, a devastating TV ratings drop and hundreds
of millions of dollars are at stake as a writers’ strike looms if the
Writers Guild of America cannot negotiate a new contract with
the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers when the current
pact expires on May 1.
you forget, the 100-day strike in 2007 resulted in the loss of 25
percent of primetime scripted programming for the 2007-08 broadcast
season, according to a letter sent to shareholders from the WGA, and at least $380 million in losses (some reports even say the losses were up to $2.1 billion).
Movies like “X-Men: Origins: Wolverine” and “Transformers: The Revenge of the Fallen” were affected, while TV series like “30 Rock” and “ER” had fewer episodes.
Fox, for example, issued an “urgent SOS to the major agencies looking
for a quick rewrite person” to get the script for “X-Men Origins:
Wolverine” into shape so that the film could start shooting in time for
its release. Shooting wrapped one month later.

More news on the film is it comes our way.

Stuart Ford’s IM Global is shopping the project to buyers on the Croisette next week. UTA Independent Film Group and WME Global are co-repping North American sales.
Escape was a spec written by first-time scribe Asher, based on his family’s experience in Sarajevo where they lived until the break-up of the country in 1992. It’s a harrowing and heart-breaking true story about a professor (McAvoy) who is caught in Sarajevo as the city is turned into an explosive battleground and who sacrifices his own safety to stay behind and continue teaching. But as the massacre escalates, his window of opportunity to join his family is quickly closing and he must fight his way out amidst the turmoil.
“Escape is the incredibly moving true story of Vanya’s father and how heroic it can be for a civilian to escape from conflict for the sake of his family,” said McCarthy. “The themes are so powerfully universal – how humour can keep people sane through hardship, how a father’s promise to his son can be the strongest drive of all. I could not be more excited than to have James McAvoy join our team.”
McCarthy is on a role as of recent: The director helmed Peaky Blinders, Sherlock and Doctor Who and his first feature The Girl With All the Gifts, starring Glenn Close and Gemma Arterton, opened last year to critical acclaim. McAvoy recently starred in M. Night Shyamalan’s Split which took $275M at the global box office.
The deal for Escape was negotiated by IM Global’s SVP Acquisitions and Co-Productions, John Zois, on behalf of IM Global.
Ascher is repped by WME, Grandview and Bloom Hergott. McCarthy is repped by UTA and Independent Talent Group in the UK. McAvoy is repped at UTA and United Agents in the UK.

The Golden Trailer Awards are devoted to showcasing the best in film and television marketing, and include serious awards as well as several tongue-in-cheek categories, such as the golden fleece award — given to a trailer that is said to have been better than the film itself.
This year’s competition drew a record number of submissions, up almost 50% from last year. Seventeen of the top honors will be presented live at the celebratory show, including the “best of” award for a variety of genre categories, the golden fleece, the trashiest trailer, the best summer 2017 blockbuster, and the most original.
The ceremony will take place on June 6 at Beverly Hills’ Saban Theater.

McAvoy, do some actors take their work too seriously?
Well, I’ve seen actors who talk about it like it’s holy
science but it’s like, you’re full of *%#@! You just do the same
*%#@ I do! (Laughs) I’ve been told so many times that if you want to win
awards, you need to start making it sound like you’re *%!+$%# sweating blood
every time you step on set…
Freeman told us, “I’m not digging tunnels, I’m not building
buildings. My work is not hard, it is lying around and getting no job that is
want me to say things like, “That was the hardest thing I’ve done! It consumed
me completely!” People will ask, “Was this the most challenging role of your
career?” I’m always like, “I don’t know. Maybe. Maybe not.” It was probably a
lot of effort and sweat but… I think if you tell yourself this is the hardest
thing you’ve ever done, then it will become the hardest thing you’ve ever done.
For me, it’s just my job and creatively speaking, it didn’t leave me ##@+#% —
but I feel that people are disappointed when I say that!
“If you don’t get the chance to express everything on set, then
you take it home with you.”
said that while you love acting, there will come a time when you’ll think that
you can’t be doing this for the rest of your life. Is that still true?
know if I agree with that anymore! I would love to do this for the rest of my
life, I love it, I really, really love it and I hope that every job allows me
to love it. When I’m doing it, there’s nothing else. You get up at 6:00 am and
you don’t get home until eight or nine and then you do it all again and it’s so
exhausting — you have no life when you work. If I’m spending half my life doing
that, then half my life is entirely that. But the other half is bringing
up my kid and being a stay-at-home dad. So, comparatively, acting is
just my job. And I think that that approach makes it easy to separate myself from
roles. I’m relatively mentally healthy and I think it’s hard to separate
yourself from roles when you’re not.
ever been a challenge for you?
really! It’s only been two or three times in my entire career. Once was when I
played Macbeth because the language kind of creates imagery in its poetry and
it sort of sinks in because it’s so demonic. It sinks in more than normal prose
does. And then the other time was when I was working with a bad director and a
bad script — I *%!+$%# hated him and he hated me. And that was horrible.
more the experience that gets to you rather than the characters?
think is that if you don’t get the chance
to express everything, if you don’t get the chance to get it all out on set….
Then you take it home with you. There was one night where I went
home from the set of Split feeling really upset and really
annoyed with myself, but I went back the next day and I just thought, “You know
what? Give yourself a break.” We did it all again and it was fine, and in the
end, I felt like I had the opportunity to say everything I wanted to say in
“Art education expands your horizons beyond that which you can
think your upbringing in a rather rough neighborhood in Scotland contributed to
your resilient nature?
Drumchapel has got a shady side, you’re right. My grandparents sort of didn’t
allow me a lot of freedom until I was about 15, 16 because they were just
scared for me, I think. They wanted to protect me from what was happening in
the street. But it was a good upbringing because I don’t feel entitled. I feel
like I’ve taken the same amount of success as a lot of other people are given
but I’ve taken it and I appreciate it but I don’t feel entitled, I don’t feel
like I deserve things, I feel like I deserve them as much as anybody else. I’ve
earned them as much as anybody should. But I do think that being deprived of
culture — which I think I was — is a problem. I think it’s a massive problem.
Well, I didn’t have money to go anywhere, I didn’t have
money to leave my country. I didn’t have a fantastic education that informed me
about what was happening in the world or people that were unlike myself. Art
education expands your horizons beyond that which you can see and that which
you can afford to explore physically but there is a huge lack of that in my
country, in state schools. I think it’s really limiting. There are a lot of
people coming from an entitled background and a privileged education in the
acting industry, particularly in Britain but the main reason for that is
because they’re the only people who are coming from schools that prioritize
cultural and art education. I mean, that’s not a problem in itself — it’s just
a symptom of a larger problem in society and of education in my country.
“Acting gave me confidence to find out who I was and not be afraid
of who I was.”
if an actor comes from a privileged background, they are still at the mercy of
course, it’s true that very few people get it handed to them anyway. The
industry is very fickle and really only cares about whether you can do it or
not, you know? I’m not saying it matters where the actors come from, you know,
it doesn’t matter if all the actors are *%!+$%# posh. But it does matter if all
the children who will never become actors anyway still aren’t getting an art
education because that just means that the horizons are that much more closed
down. Their ability to question authority and to question their leaders is
reduced massively, I think.
was it like for you personally given that your journey had a balance of both
I got lucky! I got so *%!+$%# lucky that I fell into the lap of a
director when I was 16 and he gave me a part in a film and my horizons
immediately exploded wide with all the weird people in it and all these crazy
*%!+$%# actors and directors and artistic people who were from all over the
world. Through that one job I met people from England, I met people from
America and I met people from all over the place with challenging points of
view and sympathetic points of view to mine. And then I went to a youth theater
for six months as well, and that expanded my mind massively. It gave me so much
more confidence to find out who I was and not be afraid of who I was simply
because I’m in a scenario that I don’t understand. With my background, I was
going to find myself in scenarios that I didn’t understand *%!+$%# minute by
minute! So, I learned to be cool with that. I got really lucky. I got really,
really lucky. It’s been a good ride for me.
