Got (Harvey) Milk? Alas, Zadan/Meron do not.

Grab1_6

In addition to “Angels & Demons,” Craig Zadan and Neil Meron are also feeling the pain today.

Gus Van Sant’s rival Harvey Milk project just got the greenlight from Focus. Zadan/Meron’s long-gestating adaptation of “Mayor of Castro Street,” meanwhile, is struck in strike limbo.

According to Zadan, Chris McQuarrie’s script is ready but wasn’t turned in before the strike.

“Everything’s all set,” Zadan says. “The problem is because of the writers strike, we can’t do anything.”

He says it’s frustrating, but adds, “everything’s frustrating right now.”

Meanwhile, “Milk” producers Dan Jinks and Bruce Cohen have their own strike woes: Their ABC sitcom “Pushing Daisies” got off to a nice start, but the number of new episodes is fast dwindling. The last finished script is now in production.
