A new actors strike update encourages actors to promote movies with interim agreements.

SAG-AFTRA has been on strike since July. This means that actors in the guild have not been allowed to perform in movie and TV productions not agreed to before the strike. It also means actors are not supposed to promote their projects under the current provisions.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, SAG-AFTRA is giving the green light to actors who want to promote their projects during the upcoming fall film festivals, if the project has received an interim agreement from SAG.

This would allow projects like Michael Mann’s Ferrari starring Adam Driver and Sofia Coppola’s Priscilla starring Cailee Spaeny and Jacob Elordi to have press from actors.

“We are proud of our members who demonstrate the various ways to bolster the strike effort,” national executive director and chief negotiator Duncan Crabtree-Ireland said in a statement. “Whether it’s walking a picket line, working on approved Interim Agreement productions, or maintaining employment on one of our other permissible, non-struck contracts, our members’ support for their union is empowering and inspiring.”
