The writer's strike, led by the Writers Guild of America (WGA), has caused significant disruptions throughout the entertainment industry. 'Unstoppable' became another casualty of this labor dispute, resulting in the temporary suspension of its production. The presence of picketers, protesting at the University of Southern California (USC) where the movie was being filmed, compelled the production team to halt their operations. The strike has created an atmosphere of uncertainty, affecting various aspects of the filmmaking process. Recently, Ben Affleck, who happens to be Jennifer Lopez's husband and is also involved in financing the film, shared insights about the movie.
