The vast production of Hollywood projects has been shut down since May 2 because of the Writers Guild strike. Now the Screen Guild has joined them, this has caused the shutdown due to the production of major Hollywood projects. Almost all the in-production Films and TV shows will be delayed until the strike is resolved. The only exception in this will be the completely independent projects that are not made, financed, or distributed by any studios.

List of the movies that will be affected by the WGA and SAG Strike.

American Horror Story

American Horror Story stood out as the most notorious among the shows that persevered through the WGA strike, largely due to the actions of showrunner Ryan Murphy. Despite being a member of the Writers Guild of America, Murphy opted not to follow the path taken by other prominent showrunners. 

Apples Never Fall 

The upcoming miniseries adaptation of a novel by Liane Moriarty, known for her work on Big Little Lies, had its production plans set to commence in Australia during the spring season. This adaptation is being developed by Peacock, the streaming service.

Deadpool 3

Following the commencement of the writer’s strike in May, Marvel Studios decided to halt several of their productions. However, they proceeded with the filming of Deadpool 3 in London, effectively staying ahead of the potential actors’ strike. Lead actors Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman created anticipation by sharing first-look images of their characters in costume on Monday.

Gladiator 2

Long awaited sequel of the movie starring Pedro Pascal, Washington, and Fred Hechinger directed by Ridley Scott will probably be shut down due to the strike. 

Paddington in Peru

The production of the movie was to start in July, but due to the strike, it is in a double state now.
