One Door Closes, Tyler Perry Opens Another Tyler Perry’s new 330-acre studio lot in Southwest Atlanta has finished with all the grand opening hoopla and is ready to get down to business. The first order of business it seems–get Steve Harvey back to work! The comedian/actor/game & talk show host posted pics of his meeting with Tyler on his Instagram page and that started people to buzzing about what the two could be up to. Tyler blew collective minds with the recent unveiling of his 12-soundstage studio earning him the historic honor of being the first Black to own a movie studio. According to Rollingout.com, one of those soundstages is where Harvey filmed an undisclosed project. Rollingout says, “he filmed at one of the studios and fans are clamoring to find out what magic they created.” Harvey’s Hollywood hot streak cooled down a bit after his talk show was canceled and he lost another hosting gig. But the comeback trail seems to be heating up for Harvey who also announced he’s ready to take “Family Feud” international as he’ll host versions of the popular game show in South Africa and Ghana.
