Tyler Perry filming updates

A still from "Good Deeds"

A still from "Good Deeds"

Yesterday we visited this awesome 12,000 square foot loft in Castleberry Hill where Tyler Perry has recently been filming scenes for “The Marriage Counselor.”

More on that later.

Right now we have a little information on “Good Deeds,” his slightly less recently filmed-in-Atlanta project. It is scheduled for a Feb. 24 release.

Perry stars in this one, along with Thandie Newton, Brian White, Rebecca Romijn, Jamie Kennedy, Eddie Cibrian, Jordenn Thompson, Beverly Johnson, Phylicia Rashad and Gabrielle Union.

Lionsgate sums up the plot thusly:

“A successful, wealthy businessman, Wesley Deeds (Perry) has always done what’s expected of him, whether it’s assuming the helm of his father’s company, tolerating his brother’s misbehavior at the office or planning to marry his beautiful but restless fiancée, Natalie (Gabrielle Union). But Wesley is jolted out of his predictable routine when he meets Lindsey (Thandie Newton), a down-on-her-luck single mother who works on the cleaning crew in his office building. When he offers to help her get back on her feet, the chance encounter with someone so far outside his usual circle ignites something in Wesley. This one good deed may finally spark his courage to exchange the life that’s expected of him for the life he’s always really wanted.”

This project filmed a good bit in Atlantic Station. Are you looking forward to “Good Deeds?”

Can’t wait to see it! I have seen almost all of Mr. Perry’s movies and plays and they all have a positive message, even if you don’t always agree with the way it plays out, they are always good and make you think and want to do better!
Go Tyler!!
