New: Another Major Movie Studio is Headed to Atlanta

Date:

Expect Georgia’s film industry to continue to grow as another major movie studio is headed to Atlanta, Georgia.

According to reports, Blackhall studios will open in a few weeks and the studio already has a major feature filmed lined up to start filming this March. The new studio costs $70 million to construction and is found on Constitution Road, only a few minutes away from the world-famous Starlight Drive-In theater. Blackhall Studios will feature nine sound stages, a 40,000 square foot stage, a 30,000 square foot stage, and seven 20,000 square foot stages. In total, Blackhall Studios sits on 80 acres of property. What’s interesting to point is that Blackhall Studios converted an old Metro State Prison, into a storage facility for lighting equipment. Blackhall studios boast that state’s film tax credit is the main reason for the construction of the facility. Blackhall Studios Chairman Ryan Millsap told WSBTV reporters, “In Hollywood, people are planning their schedules around when they can make a movie in Georgia because of the tax credit.” According to reports, Blackhall Studios has filed plans with the DeKalb County Department of Planning and Sustainability to rezone over 20 acres of land for movie productions.
