“The producers have not been transparent about their safety protocols,” a union rep says.
The Michael Bay-produced pandemic thriller Songbird may have hoped to go into production soon as Hollywood looks to resume film shoots amid the novel coronavirus pandemic.
But now it’s been hit with a “Do Not Work” notice from SAG-AFTRA after the performers’ union said it failed to comply with its signatory process.
The film, whose cast was unveiled on June 24, is backed by Bay, as well as the Invisible Narratives, run by former Paramount Pictures exec Adam Goodman and Disney exec Andrew Sugerman, as well as Catchlight Films, founded by Blumhouse veterans Jessica Hall Malanaphy and Jeanette Volturno and producers Marcei A. Brown and Rick A. Osako.
