Tyler Perry Unveils Home of New Studio in Atlanta

Tyler Perry has revealed that he’s opening a new Atlanta studio, four months after purchasing the closed Fort McPherson army base.

Perry announced his plans through posts on his Facebook and Twitter accounts with a photo of a sign reading “The Future Home of Tyler Perry Studios.”

“4 months ago I bought Fort McPherson Army Base,” he wrote. “It’s the future home of the new Tyler Perry Studios. I’ll keep you posted on the progress, but just know that I’d like to thank all of you. From the 30 people who showed up for my first play 20 years ago, to the millions who stand with me faithfully today, ‘Thank you.’ This dream belongs to all of us. My prayer for you is that everything that you have sewn into my life will come back to you 100 fold. Here we grow again!!!”

Fort McPherson is about five miles away from Perry’s current studio in southwest Atlanta. Perry paid $26 million for the 488-acre property, which was closed in 2011.

The current Tyler Perry Studios was founded by the actor, filmmaker and playwright in 2006. That facility, which includes 200,000 square feet of sets and office space, is expected to remain open.
