Everyone’s waiting on pins and needles for details of the WGA’s big new “Comprehensive Package Proposal” put on the negotiating table this morning. Not much else to report right now. I’m told that yesterday’s so-called bargaining “modifications” revolved around pension and health. There has been no movement on the real strike issues. More letters from studios are being received by screenwriters, some as threatening as Disney’s, some less scary like New Line’s and Fox Searchlight’s, some short and not-so-sweet like Universal’s. Stay tuned.
