The Writers’ Strike Will Delay Production on “Stranger Things”

Okay, this writers’ strike just got SERIOUS, because now it’s messing with “Stranger Things”.  Production on the fifth and final season has been halted.

Creators Matt and Ross Duffer said, “While we’re excited to start production with our amazing cast and crew, it is not possible during this strike.  We hope a fair deal is reached soon so we can all get back to work.  Until then, over and out.  #wgastrong.”

Marvel has also shut down preproduction on the new “Blade” movie starring Mahershala Ali.  But “Deadpool 3” and “Thunderbolts” are still scheduled to start filming in the next few weeks.

Meanwhile, Pete Davidson brought pizza to picketers in New York City.
