Members of the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA) are likely to receive a residual payment of 2 cents every time their performance is downloaded or accessed on a cell phone, computer, or portable video device, the New York Post reported on Sunday, citing an unnamed industry source. It quoted a SAG spokesman as confirming, "Unions are seeking or are engaged with producers in serious conversations over what residual formula ought to be applied to new distribution platforms like downloads and mobile phones." The newspaper said that an agreement between producers and the two unions regarding the new media is likely to be reached "within weeks."
The film is almost half an hour longer than 'The Force Awakens'.
The film is expected to continue without Mendes' involvement.
