ATyler Perry‘s ‘Sistas’ starting production in Atlanta, Georgia with ‘The Oval’ to quickly follow..

Update July 15, 2020 – Tyler Perry’s BET series ‘Sistas’ started production this week. The cast and the crew of the series had been quarantined at the Atlanta-based Tyler Perry Studios since last week when actors were flown in from Los Angeles and New York on Tyler Perry’s private plane.

According to Deadline, the cast has tested negative and filming started on Tuesday night with a night shoot. If ‘Sistas’ is able to finish its second season as planed, the cast and crew from Tyler Perry’s other BET series ‘The Oval’ will start filming July 30 for the Season 2 production.

As we previously reported, both shows will follow Tyler Perry’s filming guidelines which include strict testing and quadrating the shows cast and crew on his 330-acre studio.

Update May 13, 2020 – Tyler Perry will resume production on two shows starting this July in Atlanta, Georgia following the Coronavirus shutdown.

Several weeks ago, Tyler Perry was one of the first Hollywood producers to create a plan to restart filming. Now, he is the first producer to announce start dates for his television shows. On July 8, Tyler Perry will start two BET series including ‘Sistas’ and ‘The Oval’. As a result, production will start shortly at Tyler Perry Studios.

According to Deadline, ‘Sistas’ will start filming on July 8 in Atlanta, Georgia, and ‘The Oval’ will start filming on July 28th. Both series were renewed by BET after receiving high ratings in their first seasons. Tyler Perry will reportedly film 44 episodes in a little over one month.

The facility will have strict rules that include testing and keeping the cast and crew on Tyler Perry Studios’ 330-acre lot. Tyler Perry is expected to remain on the lot for the duration of the shoot along with the cast and crew. The existing homes on the former military base will provide housing for everyone working on the show.

Perry described to Deadline he spoke with leading unions to set guidelines during the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. Deadline reports Perry’s precautions are expected to surpass other guidelines in other production companies.

Perry was clear he would only start production if every cast member was okay with returning. The news outlet reports Tyler Perry held video conference calls with the cast of his shows to showcase his production plans. After testing, the cast will fly to Atlanta. Once they arrive, everyone will be tested and quarantined for four hours as they await results. The cast and crew will be tested 4 times over the course of filming and Emory Vaccine Center professor Carlos Del Rio will serve as the testing consultant.

If successful, Tyler Perry’s quick response to the pandemic will lay the foundation for other production companies to follow.

Original Post – May 7, 2020: Tyler Perry is reopening up Tyler Perry Studios

A studio spokesperson told GBPNews the studio will reopen in a limited capacity. Changes to the studio include temporary on-site housing for production crews and staff.

Earlier this week, a special meeting of the Fort McPherson Board of Directors was called, and a resolution was passed to lease a portion of the property to create temporary housing on the Tyler Perry Studio campus.

“The goal of resolution and agreement is to make sure that the talented staff and crews can be housed safely while getting people back to work during this unprecedented financial and health-related crisis,” Fort Mac spokesman Mark Hayes said.

Tyler Perry owns the 330-acre Tyler Perry Studios, which is the site of former U.S. Army military base Fort McPherson in East Point, Georgia. The studio currently has 12 soundstage and 200 acres of green space.


Filmmakers Confirm: Scooby-Doo’s Velma is Gay
But Hollywood Studios Blocked It

Velma

Tony Cervone, the producer of the animated mystery dramedy series Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, confirmed to fans this week that the character of Velma is gay.

Said Cervone in the comments section of an Instagram post: “I’ve said this before, but Velma in Mystery Incorporated is not bi. She’s gay. We always planned on Velma acting a little off and out of character while she was dating Shaggy because that relationship was wrong for her and she had unspoken difficulty with the why. There are hints about the why in that episode with the mermaid, and if you follow the entire Marcie arc it seems as clear as we could make it 10 years ago. I don’t think Marcie and Velma had time to act on their feelings during the main timeline, but post reset, they are a couple. You cannot like it, but this was our intention.”

Director James Gunn, who directed 2002’s Scooby-Doo live-action movie, said he tried to make Velma “explicitly gay” but the studio wouldn’t allow it. Gunn tweeted: “I tried! In 2001 Velma was explicitly gay in my initial script. But the studio just kept watering it down & watering it down, becoming ambiguous (the version shot), then nothing (the released version) & finally having a boyfriend (the sequel).”

The Coronavirus has shaken up Georgia’s film industry. That said, Georgia’s film industry is on track for a comeback. According to a statement by Gov. Brian Kemp, an estimated 40,000 production workers will find jobs at 75 projects, which are expected to start filming over the next 18 months.

Post-Covid-19 Georgia expects thousands of new jobs

The estimate will also impact other second-line businesses including 17,000 Georgia businesses. These production companies have added a huge impact on Georgia’s economy. In fact, in 2019, nearly 400 movies and TV shows filmed in Georgia impacting 3,040 motion picture and television industry businesses.

“Production companies want to be in Georgia and create tens of thousands of jobs for workers across the state, and today’s announcement is welcome news as we continue safely reopening our state,” Governor Kemp said. “I thank the Georgia Film Office for their work during the pandemic, and I thank the production companies who always vowed to return to Georgia when the time was right for them to safely get back to work.”

Producers are still hiring, and casting directors are continuously looking for the right talent to work on TV shows and movies filming across the state.

Filming is back in Atlanta!

Atlanta’s film industry is back as Hollywood returns to Georgia to resume filming.

Currently, the Georgia Film Commission says 14 productions are now in preproduction or have started filming. However, Deadline reports there are several others who are early preproduction and plan on filming as early as next week.

According to reports, Pinewood Studios Atlanta, which has 18 stages for filming, said “teams are back.”

Blackhall Studios, which has 9 sound stages, has “bodies on the ground”. In fact, the studio has prepared production since Monday for two film productions by 20th Century Studios and Universal. CEO Ryan Millsap says more top-level production members are expected to travel to Georgia as early as two weeks and filming will “ramp-up”. The 20th Century film was reportedly filming until March and was shut down due to the Coronavirus. Meanwhile, Universal production is a new movie. Before filming actually starts, new projects can take up to two to three months before filming.

Productions currently filming include ‘Black Adam’ starring Dwayne Johnson, Season 13 of Bravo’s ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’, Lifetime’s ‘Little Women: Atlanta’ and Tyler Perry’s ‘Sistas’ and ‘The Oval’. It is important to note that while ‘Black Adam’ is now in preproduction in Georgia, filming is not expected to start until next year.

In addition, independent films including ‘Home Safe’, ‘Terror Lake Drive’, ‘Don’t Waste Your Pretty’. and ‘Double Kidnapped’.

Reality shows including Lifetime’s ‘Little Women: Atlanta’, Bravo’s ‘Married to Medicine’, ‘Dish Nation’, and ‘1000 LB Sisters’.

“We are very grateful for the commitment recently made by industry leaders to get back to producing more films in Georgia, and it’s gratifying to see our productions begin to get safely off the ground. We will continue to work with the studios to answer their questions and help them make plans,” said Georgia Film Office director Lee Thomas.

Stranger Things filming in Georgia

Stranger Things is one of the biggest TV shows still filming in Atlanta, Georgia. Meanwhile, Georgia’s film industry is facing a boycott following the election of Brian Kemp as governor. Kemp, who served as the Secretary of State and oversaw the election, has been accused of voter suppression leading up to the election. Some of Hollywood’s biggest influencers, actors, models, and talent are calling for a boycott of Georgia’s booming film industry. For example, Frank Rich, the executive producer of HBO’s VEEP, said, “If Kemp wins in Georgia, Hollywood should put its money where its mouth is and pull all production out of the state,” Rich tweeted.

Casting calls for ‘Stranger Things’ season 4 have just been released. Casting directors are looking for talent of all ages ranging from babies to adults 18 to 100. Producers are also looking for cars to work on scenes in the hit Netflix thriller.

Viola Davis’ clip of being called the “Black Meryl Streep” goes viral amid the Black Lives Matter movement.

Since George Floyd’s killing, protests over racial inequality and police brutality have sparked around the world. Now, an interview with Viola Davis and being called the “Black Meryl Streep” has gone viral. Celebrities including Gabrielle Union have shared the 45-second clip of Davis’s 30-minute interview with Tina Brown at the Women of the World event in 2018. in the interview, she discusses having the same acting career, experience and awards as some of Hollywood’s biggest stars, but “nowhere near them” in compensation and opportunities.

Davis added, “But I have to get on that phone and people say, ‘You’re a Black Meryl Streep. There is no one like you.’ OK, then if there’s no one like me, you think I’m that, you pay me what I’m worth. You give me what I’m worth.”

Davis makes the point that while women in Hollywood are compensated less than men, Black women are paid far less than white actors.

Perry described to Deadline he spoke with leading unions to set guidelines during the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. Deadline reports Perry’s precautions are expected to surpass other guidelines in other production companies.

“We won’t talk about gender inequality of pay,” she said, “because a lot of the women who stepped — and I stand in solidarity with them, OK — what they’re getting paid, which is half of what a man is getting paid, well, we getting probably a tenth of what a Caucasian woman gets and I’m number one on the call sheet. Then I have to go in and I have to hustle for my worth. That’s what I feel like I’m doing. Listen, I have more than a 30-year professional career.”


This!!!!!! All day THIS!!!! https://t.co/z0Bq84x2Lp

Davis added she wanted bigger opportunities and less stereotypical supporting roles. She compared the success of young white actresses versus Black actresses. She explains, Shailene Woodley is talented but landed 37 magazine covers in one year while “some actress of color whose the same level of talent and everything who may have gotten four. And there is a sense in our culture that we have to be happy with that.”

Earlier this week, a special meeting of the Fort McPherson Board of Directors was called and a resolution was passed to lease a portion of the property to create temporary housing on the Tyler Perry Studio campus.


Anthony Mackie Says Marvel Needs to Work on Diversity On Set

Anthony Mackie, the actor who plays Falcon in several Marvel movies reveals in an interview that Marvel movies all have had a white production crew and the company needs to work on diversity.

Anthony Mackie recently opened up about his experiences playing Falcon in Marvel movies. During an interview with Daveed Diggs for Variety’s Actors on Actor, Mackie discussed how the Black Lives Matter movement is putting a spotlight on diversity in Hollywood.

“It really bothered me that I’ve done seven Marvel movies where every producer, every director, every stunt person, every costume designer, every PA, every single person has been white,” the 41-year-old began.“We’ve had one Black producer — his name was Nate Moore,” Mackie continued. “He produced ‘Black Panther.’ But then when you do ‘Black Panther,’ you have a Black director, Black producer, a Black costume designer, a Black stunt choreographer. And I’m like, that’s more racist than anything else.”“Because if you only can hire the Black people for the Black movie, are you saying they’re not good enough when you have a mostly white cast?”Mackie added that changes in hiring practices should be implemented even if it means creating a percentage system to get aspiring talent more experiences.

“My big push with Marvel is hire the best person for the job,” Mackie said. “Even if it means we’re going to get the best two women, we’re going to get the best two men. Fine. I’m cool with those numbers for the next 10 years. Because it starts to build a new generation of people who can put something on their resume to get them other jobs.”“If we’ve got to divvy out as a percentage, divvy it out. And that’s something as leading men that we can go in and push for.”Daveed Diggs added the need for creating more diversity, saying it has become part of the production of “Snowpierecer”, as he is the lead actor in the series.

“Going forward, how do we get the conversation to elevate ’cause it’s happening anyway. Because the nature of my body in the place is causing it to happen.”

Mackie also explained being the lead actor in the new series “Falcon and the Winter Soldier” allowed him to create more of a dialogue about diversity in the workplace.

“We have the power and the ability to ask those questions.”

Daniels' Gay Superhero Movie You Cowards

"Maybe some white filmmaker will be able to do it," says Daniels.

Last year, a back-flipping, gun-toting, pink high-heeled-boot wearing badass went viral and gave us a glimpse of what a gay superhero could be. The internet was immediately obsessed with Instagram star @hesosoutheast and calls for him to be the next Kim Possible went viral over and over again.

Lee Daniels answered that call, swooping in and promising a full-length feature film.

"It’s called Superbitch," Daniels said at the time. "I found him on Instagram of all places. He does backflips and he has a cape and he does karate and, oh my God, he’s going to be a hero!"

But a year later, Daniels has been struggling to get it off the ground.

"I've talked about it with some people,” the director told Insider. "Maybe some white filmmaker will be able to do it. Maybe they’ll give it to a white guy." He didn't provide any more details on the status of the film, though Daniels remains somewhat optimistic.

"Anything I want done, I do it myself," he continued. "It's not like I rely on anybody to do a film. It takes time. I've learned. In my 30s I was frustrated, in my 40s. But whatever I want done, it will be done. That's the journey that I've had as a gay Black filmmaker."

"I will get it done, but in my own way and in my own time."

Killers of the Flower Moon is an upcoming American crime thriller film directed by Martin Scorsese and written by Eric Roth. The next movie is based on the non-fiction book of the same name by David Grann. The film will star Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro.

According to reports, the upcoming feature film has gone over budget, and Paramount isn’t willing to cover the costs. Therefore, Scorsese and his team are talking with Netflix, Apple, and other parties to raise the rest of the funds.

Coronavirus Hollywood Shutdown Estimated to End in July

By Project Casting

Stranger Things
LOS ANGELES - JUN 28: Cast at the "Stranger Things" Season 3 World Premiere at the Santa Monica High School on June 28, 2019 in Santa Monica, CA - Image Editorial credit: Kathy Hutchins / Shutterstock.com

When will the Coronavirus-related Hollywood shut down end?

In a recent report on actor’s compensation amid a Coronavirus outbreak, Deadline broke the news as to when Hollywood filmmakers plan on starting back production. At this time, many studios are evaluating filming for TV shows, and movies will start back this July 2020.

When will filming start again?

When can we expect Hollywood Coronavirus shutdown to blow over? Well, according to reports, it may not end until July. Deadline’s Nellie Andreeva reports, “With the worst in the coronavirus outbreak in the U.S. yet to come, Hollywood production may not resume before July at the earliest.”

Netflix plans to complete production on all shows that were underway during the stoppage; This includes Georgia-filmed’ Stranger Things, which just started filming their fourth season. That said, all work that can be done from home will continue.

Netflix Pays Talent

The Coronavirus pandemic has forced nearly all TV show and movie productions to indefinitely shut down. These unforeseeable circumstances have put many contracts between producers and cast members in legal limbo. But, according to Deadline, despite the pandemic, Netflix will pay their talent.

Deadline’s Nellie Andreeva reports, Netflix has issued payments to cast members on productions impacted by the Hollywood shutdown.

“I hear actors on series, which were filming or about to go into production at the time everything was put on hold, are receiving their minimum guarantees,” Andreeva reports. “That’s episodic fees for the minimum number of episodes each regular cast member is guaranteed on a show each season per their contract (it varies). I hear the initial wave includes about a dozen series, which had been immediately impacted, with the list expected to grow as more shows don’t go into scheduled shoots during the pandemic.”

It is important to note, that if force major — unforeseeable circumstances that prevent someone from fulfilling a contract — is instituted, then arrangements are voided and actors not paid. Deadline reports, all actors attached to projects, will be removed. However, to keep actors on a project, studios will have to continue paying their talent minimums during the shutdown.


Netflix $100 Million Coronavirus Disaster Fund

In relevant news, Netflix created a $100 million fund to help talent affected by the Coronavirus.

As the Coronavirus spreads throughout the world, Netflix’s fund will help members of the creative community are unemployed and have no way to make money during the COVID-19 outbreak. Netflix says the majority of the fund will go toward supporting unemployed crew members who were laid-off by the epidemic.

“The COVID-19 crisis is devastating for many industries, including the creative community. Almost all television and film production have now ceased globally — leaving hundreds of thousands of crew and cast without jobs,” Netflix’s chief content officer Ted Sarandos said in a statement. “These include electricians, carpenters, and drivers, many of whom are paid hourly wages and work on a project-to-project basis. This community has supported Netflix through the good times, and we want to help them through these hard times, especially while governments are still figuring out what economical support they will provide.”
