Last week’s beginning of the strike by screen actors resulted in the immediate shutdown of all on-set filming organized by major Hollywood studios. However, because it is categorized as an independent studio, the specialists in faith-based content Angel Studios were allowed by the actor’s union to continue its work. Actors on the set of the series THE CHOSEN confirmed they had received a waiver to resume shooting their fourth season.
This comes as a bit of respite for theatre owners who are nervous about the potential impact of a prolonged strike if it lasts into the fall. Theatrical releases of faith-based titles JESUS REVOLUTION, SOUND OF FREEDOM, and THE CHOSEN have drawn engaged audiences to cinemas, and the wavier to continue work on the fourth season of THE CHOSEN will allow its creators to proceed with a planned theatrical release of certain episodes in 2024.
