Philippa Boyens talks about the union row Can't Post

Philippa Boyens, co-writer and co-producer on The Hobbit speaks out for the first time about the actors' union row affecting the movie project.

Here

Thanks to Philippa for telling us what has really been going on.

The Unions have been doing their best not to talk to anyone, just fire out statements and grumpy emails, refusing to talk to reporters and then blame the media for not getting it right.

All artists are prepared to suffer for their work, but why are so few prepared to learn to draw? :BANKSY
