Which In Production Movies Are Impacted by the Actors Strike?

With the actors having joined the writers on strike, Hollywood is more or less shutting down for a bit. After all, aside from reality programming, what kind of movie can operate with a director but no cast or screenwriter? Today, we can report on some of the projects that have shut down while the strike is going on.

According to Variety, a number of films have obviously suspended production now that the strike is in place. They include titles that were trying to press on while the writers were striking, like Deadpool 3. There’s also nearly completed movies like Beetlejuice 2, though that also includes Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part Two, which still has more to do. Here’s hoping the studios come to the table and give the actors and writers the ability to make a living. Not only is that better for them, it’ll get the industry back on track.

This is the full list of affected productions, as per the article:

Beetlejuice 2

Deadpool 3

Gladiator 2

Juror #2

Lilo & Stich


Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part Two

Mortal Kombat 2

Venom 3

And these are just the major projects currently in development; movies further back in the pipeline are also stalled. And, thankfully, Christopher Nolan is putting his entire directorial “To Do” list on hold as well in solidarity:

“This is a very key moment in the relationship between working people and Hollywood. This is not about me, this is not about the stars of my film. This is about jobbing actors, this is about staff writers on television shows trying to raise a family, trying to keep food on the table.”
