LOTS OF DISNEY, WARNER BROS, PARAMOUNT AND FOX COULD FIT IN TYLER PERRY’S NEW STUDIO AND 60 ACRES WOULD STILL BE LEFT – STARS SUBMIT DURING GRAND OPENING
“The studio lots of Disney, Warner Bros, Paramount, Fox and Sony could fit inside @TylerPerry’s studio lot at the same time – and there would still be 60 acres to spare. All on a former Confederate Army base. A stunning achievement that will echo through the generations”, That was Ava DuVarnay’s submission after a tour around Tyler Perry’s new studio.
The writer and director Tyler Perry officially opened his massive new film studio in Atlanta, with a party that drew celebrities including Oprah Winfrey, Samuel L Jackson, and Halle Berry.
Spike Lee, Cicely Tyson and others also helped Perry launch his new facility, a 134-hectare (330-acre) studio, one of the largest in the US, that once served as a Confederate army base.
“I think it’s pivotal in everything that we’ve done, everything that we’re doing still, that we continue to try to motivate and inspire people,” said Perry, who was once homeless.
Winfrey praised Perry and said the new studio head was a force to be reckoned with.
“He didn’t wait for other people to validate or to say you should go this way, or that way. He said: ‘I’m going to create my own way,’ and as we can see here, become a force for himself,” Winfrey said.
Jackson pointed to Perry’s vision as the key to his ascent. “This is more about Tyler the entrepreneur. The visionary. A guy who understands that ownership means that you can do what you want,” Jackson said.
Tyler Perry Studios has 12 soundstages, each named after a seminal black actor.
