Washington, Feb 16 (ANI): Tom hanks and George Clooney have warned that if the upcoming talks between the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) and the movie studios do not prove fruitful, there is a possibility of an actors strike.
In a letter published in the Los Angeles Times, both the actors have said that the talks should begin as soon as possible to reduce the chances of a strike.

Screen Actors Guild (SAG) members are reported to strike this summer after their contract expires on 30 June and if talks with studio bosses arent successful.

However, the pair is hopeful that the strike can be avoided.

“A strike by the actors is certainly a possibility this summer, but is by no means inevitable, Contactmusic quoted the actors, as stating in the letter.

“Talks between the producers and actors should begin as soon as possible so that those negotiations will produce the fair, progressive and responsible contract the actors deserve.

“Perhaps then out town (Hollywood) - and everyone in the business of show - will be spared another work stop-page,” they added. (ANI)
