Tyler Perry is just getting started with more productions coming to the state of Georgia.

Ever since the historic grand opening of his studio, we've just learned, according to Explore Georgia, he's been working on two more new shows for BET+ and Nickelodeon. The A-Scene first learned about the production for Nickelodeon back in October.

The star went on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" where he talked about making so many dreams come true through his own platforms.

The writer, actor, producer delivered quite the surprise during the appearance. The beloved talk show host welcomed 10-year-old rapper Dylan Gilmer, also known as “Young Dylan,” from Annapolis, Maryland.

Dylan came on the show to talk about his guest-starring role on the revival of Nickelodeon’s hit series “All That,” which Ellen helped him secure. Ellen shared her excitement for the young star with Perry, who was blown away by Dylan’s audition tape. 

But it didn’t stop there, Perry surprised Dylan by announcing he’s writing a show with Dylan as the lead for Nickelodeon. Ellen kept the surprises coming by giving the young star some gifts to help set up his new dressing room.


Production on J.J. Abrams and Jordan Peele’s upcoming "Lovecraft Country" is still active going into the new year.

Project Casting reports producers are casting for an actress to portray the wife of an actor. The actress must be an Asian woman ages 19 to 24. Filming goes down Jan. 13. If you think you’ve got what it takes for the upcoming role, send your info here.

“Lovecraft County” is another major production that is currently still filming throughout Georgia.

Production began in June and continues to film throughout parts of Marietta under the basecamp code “RP."

When The A-Scene went to visit BlackHall Studios in October, CEO Ryan Milsap confirmed that the series had a “Game of Thrones budget" and was utilizing three sound stages at his facility.

Michael Kenneth Williams, who was once featured in HBO’s inner-city drug traffic series “The Wire," returns as the star of "Lovecraft Country." His co-star Jurnee Smollett also retweeted his excitement for the show's release.

The new series will hit your screens next year.


The sequel to the 2016 blockbuster has been in production in Atlanta since late summer.

The action-packed film is part of the shared DC cinematic universe that began with “Man of Steel” and continued in 2016's “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” with Ben Affleck as Batman and Henry Cavill as Superman.

“EEF” is the basecamp code used for making ‘Suicide Squad’ in Georgia. If you see this sign in your neighborhood, let us know in The A-Scene Facebook group.

Last month, actor Idris Elba took a break from set sequel to watch some action court side during an Atlanta Hawks game against Toronto.

The A-List star was spotted taking pics with some ball players before the game. An Insider tells The A-Scene Elba chatted it up with Hawks legend Dominique Wilkins in addition to both Vince Carter and Trae Young. 

We’ve also spotted the director James Gunn hanging out with the cast members off set throughout the city of Atlanta. Poor Calvin’s, which is an Asian fusion restaurant off Piedmont, was the choice for dining for Gunn, just a few weeks ago.

The "Suicide Squad" sequel hits theaters August of 2021.
