While the WGA strike is ongoing and has created troubles for films and TV shows, the SAG-AFTRA strike has now put oil to the fire. Both strikes have led to the shutdown of production for various projects that were supposed to be released by 2024.
The release of various projects remains uncertain now due to the ongoing strikes. Many actors have joined the strike and there is a long list of films and TV shows that have been affected. Let’s check the titles.
1. Beetlejuice 2
The first ‘Beetlejuice’ was released a long time ago. After years of speculation, a sequel was confirmed with Jenna Ortega joining as a new cast member. The filming was supposed to end soon but the strike has now changed everything.
2. Deadpool 3
‘Deadpool 3’ is one of the most highly anticipated projects from the MCU after a long phase of failures at the box office. There is heavy excitement among fans as Hugh Jackman has also joined the cast as Wolverine. The film is scheduled to be released in 2024 but will possibly get postponed.
3. Gladiator 2
After a long wait of more than 15 years, a sequel to ‘Gladiator 2’ finally happened. Around two-thirds of the shooting has been completed before the strike started.
4. Juror #2
This one is a brand-new show that was supposed to premiere soon. However, production has been suspended despite that filming was half done. It features Nicholas Hoult in an important role.
