Blackhall Studios is planning a major 40-acre expansion in Atlanta, Georgia.

Blackhall Studios are the filming locations, including Venom, Jumanji: The Next Level, and Millie Bobby Brown's Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Now, the Atlanta film studio is planning a major expansion.

The Dekalb County Commission has voted to deliver green space to allow Blackhall Studio to expand and become one of America's largest movie studios.

The studio’s owner Ryan Millsap is creating a plan to become a movie industry leader as he hopes to expand his current production facilities. Currently, Blackhall studios are 150 acres across two campuses, and the new expansion will increase the studio by another 40 acres.

Commissioner Larry Johnson reportedly outlined how the expansion would provide economic advancement for neighborhoods and new careers and people opportunities.

In relevant news, Pinewood Atlanta Studios is now Trilith Studios.

Pinewood Atlanta Studios is the home to some of the biggest movies, including Avengers: Endgame, and Pinewood Forest, a 200+ acre mixed-use development. Now, the two facilities are joining as one and rebranding as “Trilith.”

According to a press release, the new 935-acre master development includes the studio, which is now called Trilith Studios, business, homes, restaurants, and schools, all aimed at the film industry.

Trilith, which, according to the press release, means “conjures the iconic three-stone structure of Stonehenge, is emblematic of the three pillars of creativity behind it: storytelling, purpose-built places, and emerging technology.”

“A trilith is an appropriate symbol for our new identity as it represents a nod to our U.K. history while serving as a metaphor for the three pillars of our vision,” Frank Patterson, president, and CEO of Trilith Studios, LLC, said in the release. “The new Trilith Studios brand signals to the entertainment industry our expansion from a facilities business to an ecosystem intentionally built for the creative industries.”
