Filming on the project began before the SAG-AFTRA strike that began on July 24th. Production was suspended until the indie film received a waiver from the actors union to resume filming despite the ongoing strike. Director Sigal said: “It breaks my heart that there are so many actors, writers and crew unable to work right now, and I realize how lucky we are to have the opportunity to finish this film. I am incredibly grateful to SAG for continuing to support independent cinema, and as soon as we finish this film, the cast of The Tower and I will be out there, on the front lines, alongside our fellow actors and writers, fighting for what they deserve.“.
