Tyler Perry opens movie studio

News

(WIAT) — Media mogul Tyler Perry is opening a 330-acre film studio in Georgia.

The new complex marks a major achievement for the man who started out as a struggling playwright — and was at times homeless.

His new studio is now one of the largest in the country.

Perry told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution he plans to further develop the area with restaurants and retail shops. He also hopes to turn the studio into a popular destination in the area.
