Scott Baio Movie Shut Down for Not Following COVID-19, Child Safety Rules

Now we wait for the inevitable "teh liberulz iz owt 2 git me" whinge!

via Deadline:

SAG-AFTRA has pulled the plug on a movie called Courting Mom & Dad, accusing the producers of having “failed to comply with LA County Health Orders and SAG-AFTRA protocols in connection with COVID-19 as well as California regulations related to minor performers.”

The film, from Revenge Movies LLC, stars Scott Baio and Kristy Swanson as the parents of three children who seek the help of a personal injury attorney to stop their imminent divorce.

In a statement, the guild said that SAG-AFTRA members “are hereby instructed to withhold any acting services or performance of any covered work for this production until further notice from the union. Please note, accepting employment or rendering services on Courting Mom & Dad, may be considered a violation of Global Rule One. Violating this order may result in disciplinary action in accordance with the SAG-AFTRA Constitution.”

SAG-AFTRA did not elaborate on specifics about why it issued the “do not work” order.

The union’s Global Rule One, which requires members to work only for signatory companies, states that “No member shall render any services or make an agreement to perform services for any employer who has not executed a basic minimum agreement with the union, which is in full force and effect, in any jurisdiction in which there is a SAG-AFTRA national collective bargaining agreement in place.”

The production company could not be reached for comment.

2. I was going to say: "Scott Baio and Kristy Swanson are doing a movie?"

But, I guess they aren't. Who knows when an opportunity for them to do another one will come along?...
