Brad Bird, 'Ratatouille'

"It casts a pall over the celebratory feeling," "Ratatouille" director Brad Bird said of the writers strike. "As a WGA member, I don't want to do anything that's going to wreck or impact negotiations.... It's the kind of situation where you don’t know what to do.... It's hard to even talk about. "Animation isn’t technically Writers Guild, but the project I’m doing next is. It's a weird situation. I’m a director too, so I’m caught all up in this." -- Elena Howe, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer
