At last, the longest actors’ strike in Hollywood history is finally over. On the 118th day, SAG-AFTRA reached a tentative agreement with the studios that will move to the union’s national board for approval on Friday before a ratification vote by the rank-and-file. The union released a statement outlining some of the landmark achievements, including streaming bonuses, improved health care, DEI protections and the big one — major guidelines surrounding consent and compensation from A.I. Now that both strikes have been resolved, hopefully everyone still practices solidarity by avoiding The Drew Barrymore Show.
The strike ending is great news for Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz and Eddie Murphy who have all been teased to return to Far, Far Away. Although there’s been no official announcement of the beloved Shrek’s cast return for a fifth installment, we do have an alleged release window thanks to one proud NBCUniversal intern. In a LinkedIn job description, the intern listed a slew of upcoming Illumination releases that include Shrek 5, which was said to be due out in early 2025. Once outlets caught wind of the blurb, it was quickly altered, but Shrekheads everywhere had already begun rejoicing. Let’s hope that intern hasn’t been banished to a tower away from society.
While we won’t be seeing any more “girl the strike” tweets, we at least have the tweets below to make us laugh. Today’s hilarious bunch include those about an interesting mosquito repellent, a valid question for Sisyphus and a horror film fan who is never getting to a second date.
