It's no longer imminent it's fact. This is kinda, well, big. Wink

Originally [In reply to] Can't Post

I was going to start dancing around the house singing "Celebrate Good Times" when this finally happened. But honestly, my biggest concern is currently the actors union boycott.

Still, it is very nice having one less roadblock. Congratulations to MGM.

You're right on both accounts... [In reply to] Can't Post

This does mean the *very* minute the actors' thing is solved, the show goes on, which is, by itself, encouraging. Smile

Greenlights and such [In reply to] Can't Post

Yup and the production can be greenlit before the union thing is completely resolved - though not necessarily.

Well, isn't that good timing [In reply to] Can't Post

That the MGM-Spyglass resolution happens the day before a supposed "Friday announcement" Wink.


I'm not really holding out much hope for such an annoucement. But they did say a greenlight could be coming in a matter of weeks. And the defusion of the MGM issue certainly makes that a very real possibility.

Good news may be coming soon enough, folks.

Progress on one front at last. [In reply to] Can't Post

Looks like they have till the 22nd of October to vote. Then bankruptcy, then green light. Now for the union / location brouhaha.

DO IT TO IT ROCKAPELLA! [In reply to] Can't Post

(Anyone remember the tv show "where in the world is carmen sandiego"? They would start the show by saying "Do it to it Rockapella!" and that's what I feel like saying now.)
