According to former Disney head honcho Michael Eisner, the Hollywood Writer’s Strike is over, with a deal having been reached between the two parties involved in the dispute, and that he expects writers to be back at work “very soon”. Given that Eisner was more than a little disparaging towards the writers at the beginning to the strike, he coming out to declare this seems like the real thing.
“It’s over,” Eisner said. “They made the deal, they shook hands on the deal. It’s going on Saturday to the writers in general.”
Eisner, speaking live on CNBC’s “Fast Money,” seemed to hesitate initially about whether it was possible that the writers could still reject the agreement, but finally suggested the deal’s acceptance was inevitable.
“A deal has been made, and they’ll be back to work very soon,” Eisner said, adding, “I know a deal’s been made. I know it’s over.”
If this is indeed true, Hallelujah!
