LOS ANGELES - A person familiar with efforts to restart talks between the Screen Actors Guild and Hollywood studios says negotiations will resume within two weeks.

The person, who was not authorized to speak publicly, said yesterday that the talks will resume by May 28.

The two sides parted ways last week after 18 days of talks over a contract that covers both movies and prime-time TV shows.

That contract ends June 30.

The studios, represented by the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers, are currently negotiating with the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists for a contract covering a handful of TV shows. *
