Some of the biggest directors working in Hollywood, from Christopher Nolan to Alfonso Cuarón and Guillermo del Toro, are asking Warner Bros. to save the classic-film streaming service FilmStruck. Just under 20 directors and actors have signed an open letter to Warner Bros. chairman Toby Emmerich urging the executive to re-evaluate a decision made by WarnerMedia — Warner Bros.’ parent company, which is in the process of merging with AT&T — to end support for the streaming service. The open letter includes acknowledgement from Hollywood’s top talent that there are business aspects to take into consideration during a merger, but it argues FilmStruck shouldn’t be lost in the process. FilmStruck, they argue, is a way to preserve cinema’s integrity for a streaming audience. The company didn’t disclose how many subscribers the service had, but it’s nowhere near Netflix’s nearly 140 million subscribers worldwide.
