Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar: The team behind Kristen Wiig's upcoming comedy, a film she co-wrote with Annie Mumolo, was similarly in the planning stages for location scouting in Georgia when production company Gloria Sanchez Productions decided not to shoot in the state, EW has learned.
The effects of the controversial USA anti-abortion bill are being felt in the entertainment industry, with Kristen Wiig pulling production of her upcoming comedy that was set to shoot in Georgia.
'I think this is one of the ways where we know we can hit a state where it hurts, ' Morano added about pulling her series out of Georgia amid the abortion ban. The law will go into effect January 1, 2020, unless it is blocked in the courts.
"We have to recognize that Georgia is the only state that is such a deep part of the film industry that also has the type of draconian leadership that would seek to strip a woman's autonomy in this way", she told the Los Angeles Times.
Alabama, Ohio, Kentucky, Mississippi, and Missouri are among the states with similar heartbeat bills, but Georgia is a second home for Hollywood.
Georgia's new bill would ban abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected, which can occur as early as six weeks into a pregnancy.Читайте также: Is OnePlus 7 Pro Receiving Android Q Update?
Georgia was the first of a crop of Republican-dominated states that have moved to pass restrictive anti-abortion legislation in a bid to get the issue before the Supreme Court.
Filmmakers J.J. Abrams and Jordan Peele released a joint statement stating they'd stand "shoulder to shoulder with the women of Georgia" as their new show "Lovecraft Country" begins shooting in the state.
Some of the more vocal proponents of the ban have come from the world of Hollywood: actors Sean Penn, Alec Baldwin, Mia Farrow, Don Cheadle, Jason Bateman, and Ben Stiller have all signed a petition calling for it.
Instead, she urged people to donate to organisations that would fight the bill.
Multiple producers, including Mark Duplass of Duplass Brothers Productions, David Simon of Blown Deadlines Productions and Christine Vachon of Killer Films, have vowed to boycott production in Georgia in response to the state's bill.
The industry employed some 92,000 people and generated billions of dollars in economic impact in 2018, according to statistics cited by Time. The show The Walking Dead was filmed nearly entirely in the state.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
