Variety.com reports that following the tentative agreement reached between the Directors Guild of America (DGA) and the Alliance of Motion Picture & Television Producers (AMPTP), the Writers Guild of America (WGA), on strike since 5 November, is wanting to hold informal talks with the AMPTP.
This was the approach used by the DGA in its dealings with the AMPTP and only a week’s worth of talks led to an agreement. Meanwhile, talks between the WGA and AMPTP broke down on 7 December after a month of fractious negotiations.
According to Variety, industry insiders believe that some members of the WGA are not happy with the hardline approach adopted by Guild leaders. If an agreement is not reached soon, the Guild may experience something of an internal uprising.
