DAY 2: SAG and the AMPTP issued another statement about their negotiations that says nothing. Talks will resume tomorrow at 10:00 AM. I hear everything is very “pro forma” at this early stage. In other words, no fireworks yet. Meanwhile, SAG followed the WGA playbook and struck an interim deal with The Film Department as part of its month-old program helping indie moviemakers to weather a strike — as long as they don’t have financing or distribution deals with any AMPTP-represented studio or company.
