Variety are running an update on exactly how the current Writer’s Guild strikes shall affect the big budget Hollywood productions, specifically Michael Bay’s Transformers 2 and the Wolverine X-men spin off:
DreamWorks/Par’s “Transformers 2″ is far enough along to proceed with pre-production, location scouting and advance VFX work, but will face serious issues if the strike continues for several months. Michael Bay’s megabudget sequel isn’t set to start filming until June.
Fox is moving full speed ahead with its “X-Men” spinoff “Wolverine,” even though many roles are still uncast. Unlike “X-Men,” “Wolverine” rests solidly on Hugh Jackman’s shoulders.
If you don’t understand the cause of these strikes, I recommend watching this video which explains everything you need to know:
