There’s a potential disaster brewing at the production offices of Sharknado 3, and it doesn’t involve vengeful sea creatures or extreme weather events.
Nearly 40 members of the TV movie's post-production team voted to walk out Tuesday over contract disputes. The team of digital artists and editors are now striking outside the film’s Burbank production offices in search of health and pension benefits.
The crew operated under IATSE union contracts for the first two installments of the disaster franchise, which were popular for SyFy, but rushed production for the third installment prevented production company The Asylum from reaching a union agreement with their staff.
