Screen Actors Guild Says Contract Talks Could Last Into July

The Screen Actors Guild says negotiations with Hollywood studios could extend beyond June 30, the day its contract is set to expire.

SAG executive director Doug Allen says in a Thursday e-mail to The Associated Press the union is hoping for an agreement soon but is prepared to keep negotiating into July.

The union has yet to call for a strike authorization vote by members and hopes work in Hollywood would continue if contract talks are extended.
