The much-awaited red carpet premiere of Special Ops: Lioness got postponed because of SAG-AFTRA strike

Zoe Saldaa, Laysla De Oliveira, Nicole Kidman, Morgan Freeman, Michael Kelly, Dave Annable, Jill Wagner, LaMonica Garrett, James Jordan, Austin Hébert, Jonah Wharton, Stephanie Nur, Hannah Love Lanier, and Sam Asghari were all expected to attend the “Special Ops: Lioness” premiere, which was initially planned for July 18 at the Directors Guild of America Theatre in Los Angeles.

Fran Drescher, head of SAG-AFTRA, announced the strike in a brash and passionate press conference on Thursday. They currently find themselves on the wrong side of history. We are united in never-before-seen solidarity. We have the support of other labour unions as well as our union, our sister unions, and unions all around the world. The jig is up at some point, after all. You cannot continue to be diminished, ignored, despised, and dishonoured. Streaming, digital, and AI have completely altered the business model, according to Drescher.

According to the Wrap, a team of operatives will be trying to bring down a terrorist group from within in Special Ops: Lioness, which is based on a real-life CIA undercover program. A female agent will be used to infiltrate the organization by making friends with terrorists’ spouses and daughters.

What will the Special Ops: Lioness be about?

According to the official synopsis, “Special Ops: Lioness, inspired by an actual US Military program, chronicles the life of Joe (Saldaa), who is the tip of the CIA’s spear in the war on terror, as she tries to manage her personal and professional life.
