While the writers’ strike has already cast a shadow over the young TV season, things are looking up for moviegoers, who are likely to be pretty psyched about what’s not getting made. Specifically, four films that have been halted—each of which, at least at this embryonic stage, sound like steaming piles of Gigli. Here’s a quick look at what you didn’t want to see anyway:
Angels and Demons: The whole strike is almost worth the pleasure of seeing Dan Brown‘s prequel to The Da Vinci Code get pushed back.
