The cast of the new Hunger Games movie WILL be allowed to promote it despite actor strike
The cast of The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes will be allowed to promote the movie despite the ongoing actor strike.
Currently, actors in the United States are not allowed to promote or make public appearances regarding any new projects due to strike rules.
Since May of this year, various Hollywood productions have shut down due to a strike from the Writer's Guild of America, and that group was subsequently joined by the actor's union. It was the first time in 60 years that both writers and actors have been on strike at the same time, though writers have since resolved their dispute with studios.
The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes has been granted an interim agreement from SAG-AFTRA which means promotional activities can commence.
“I am so beyond thankful to Lionsgate and SAG-AFTRA for working so hard throughout this strike to come to an agreement, allowing us to participate in press and promotion for our film, which comes to theaters on November 17," star Rachel Zegler wrote on Instagram.
“Lionsgate’s efforts are proof that studios, big and small, can meet us in a place of fairness for their films and the people who work so hard to make them.
“Making this movie was hands-down one of the best experiences of my life thus far. I cannot wait to share more behind-the-scenes content with you all, the fans, who make experiences like this eight million times better. there will be lots of all my beautiful friends from the cast, as well as appreciation for our crew, which is filled with people I love so deeply. (so watch this space! there’s more to come.)"
