Strike action from Hollywood's biggest names threatens to bring the film industry to a grinding halt. The walkout, scheduled for next June (08), is set to be carried out by writers and actors demanding a share of the huge royalties made from DVD sales. Sales of DVDs reportedly earn Hollywood more than $24 billion (GBP12 billion) a year - but at present there is no entitlement for actors and writers. Producers are now rushing films into production to ensure they're finished before the June cut-off date. Eric Fellner, co-chairman of Working Title, whose box-office hits include Four Weddings and a Funeral and Notting Hill, says, "All films are having to be finished by March. So, whether the strike goes ahead or not, there's a de facto strike. Actors won't work and writers won't work."
