TYLER PERRY OPENS NEW STUDIO IN ATLANTA
The stars came out to celebrate Tyler Perry as he officially opened his new film studio on Saturday.
Oprah Winfrey, Spike Lee, Cicely Tyson, Samuel L. Jackson, Halle Berry, all three members of Destiny’s Child and others all helped Perry christen his new facility, a 330-acre studio that once served as a Confederate army base.
Winfrey said, "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.”
Tyler Perry Studios, which is worth $250 million dollars, has 12 soundstages, each named after influential black actors and actresses.
