Strike Impacts Narnia Production Anyway

From Variety: Warner sets layoffs due to strike
The pinkslips just keep coming -- even though film production remains robust.

Faced with the death of scripted TV production and ongoing uncertainty over the WGA strike, showbiz continues to trim jobs.


Anschutz Film Group shingles Walden Media and Bristol Bay shuttered the majority of their creative departments and laid off much of the physical production staff as well. Exec veep of production Alex Schwartz was among those let go. Walden will retain the key players on its "Narnia" team.
Despite the delay in the production of Voyage of the Dawn Treader, the strike nonetheless impacts Prince Caspian work as well. And with the last-minute FX hustle that LWW was forced into, one wonders if the quality will not suffer as well.
