Lionsgate and Marvel strike deal with writers


Lionsgate and Marvel studios have signed interim deals with the striking Writers Guild of America (WGA).

In a statement Lionsgate said: "It was an important time to have our writer partners get back to work."

Talk show host David Letterman's firm, United Artists and The Weinstein Company have already struck deals.

In a statement, the WGA said: "We are pleased Lionsgate has joined the growing number of companies that have signed interim agreements with the Writers Guild."

The WGA have been on strike since November in a dispute over royalties for work distributed online or on DVD.
