Writers Sign Deal WIth Marvel and Lionsgate

The writer’s strike is beginning to crack the monolith block of producers. The latest companies to pen an agreement with the striking WGA are Lionsgate and Marvel Studios. These studios join the list of producers who have already reached agreements with the writers. The others include the Weinstein Company, United Artists, Worldwide Pants, Spyglass Entertainment, MRC, Jackson Bites, Mandate Films, and Sidney Kimmel Entertainment.

The agreement puts a few Marvel projects back into production and will aid in the release of several films scheduled for this summer. Let’s hope the other producers follow suit soon. I am darned tired of re-runs!
