Adam Driver Criticize Studios and Streamers Hollywood Strike

Adam Driver calls for Netflix, Amazon and firms to back Venice talent.

As the SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes in Hollywood continue, “Ferrari” star Adam Driver mentioned streaming behemoths Amazon and Netflix during a press conference on Thursday during the Venice Film Festival.

Driver questioned why smaller distribution companies like Neon and STX International (distributors for “Ferrari”) could fulfill the ideal expectations made by SAG — this is the pre-negotiations — but large corporations like Netflix and Amazon couldn’t.

“Every time people from SAG go and support a movie that has agreed to these terms – the interim agreement,” he continued, “it just makes it more obvious that these people are willing to support the people they collaborate with, and the others are not.”

The actor has acted in several Netflix movies, including “White Noise” from a year ago and “Marriage Story,” for which he received an Oscar nomination.

Driver is one of the select few performers taking advantage of the interim agreement waivers with SAG-AFTRA for independent productions to attend events at the Venice Film Festival.

Promoting movies and TV shows made by studios and streamers that are a part of the AMPTP is otherwise prohibited under strike rules for actors guild members.

Writers in the Writers Guild of America (WGA) have been on strike since May, and members of the Screen Actors Guild and American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) went on strike in July.

Ferrari,” an independent film directed by Michael Mann starring Driver as the Italian sports car tycoon Enzo Ferrari, tells the tale of his life.

The driver stated in Venice, “I’m very happy to be here to support this movie,” and added that he’s “very proud to be here to be a visual representation of a movie that’s not part of the AMPTP and to promote the SAG leadership directive, which is an effective tactic – which is the interim agreement.”
