Strike: Anna Kendrick joined the picket line in Los Angeles Tuesday amid the SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes

Anna Kendrick showed her support by participating in the strike in Los Angeles alongside the members of SAG-AFTRA and WGA. The writers went on strike on May 2nd, with the actors following suit six weeks later due to failed negotiations with the Hollywood studios. This marks the first time since 1960 that both actors and writers are on strike simultaneously.

The two groups are united in their demands for higher pay, improved working conditions, and safeguards against the threat of Artificial Intelligence taking over their jobs. Writers fear being replaced by AI in the scriptwriting process, while actors are worried about their performances and images being digitally manipulated without their consent and without receiving any compensation.

The strikes have effectively halted work in the movie and television industry, creating a standstill in productions. Once the strikes are resolved, Anna Kendrick will be faced with a busy schedule ahead. She recently wrapped up her work on the mystery film “Woman of the Hour,” where she not only stars in the movie but also takes on the role of director.
