Info on what films will make it in time before the upcoming strike. I am grateful to hear that the Prince Of Persia adaptation will be done after the strike, as I do not want to see Jerry Bruckheimer rush it through development - more so than he normally does. Thank goodness Disney is handling this franchise however, as they're looking to make this the new epic franchise to succeed Pirates.
From Dark Horizons:
With the potential writer's strike less than a day away, studios have prepared more than four dozen projects that are ready to go no matter how long the strike goes on.
Variety has penned a great article explaining which titles are ready to be filming before March. Some high profile titles (eg. "Nottingham," "Transformers 2," "Prince of Persia," "Shantaram") don't seem to have made the cut and will have to wait until any potential strike is concluded.
