Tyler Perry Facing Lawsuit Over Fort McPherson Redevelopment Plans

0

Tyler Perry is facing a legal challenge to his bid to turn a former Georgia military base into a movie studio from bosses at a rival entertainment company.

Chiefs at Ubiquitous Entertainment Studios claim their top executive met with U.S. government officials in December 2011 to outline their proposal to transform part of Fort McPherson in Atlanta into a studio and entertainment complex.

Plans had to be temporarily put on hold as civilian authorities in charge of the redevelopment project did not want to begin negotiations until they officially took over ownership of the property this year.

However, lawyers for Ubiquitous have accused Perry of attempting to sabotage their deal by trying to convince authorities to work out a similar deal with his Tyler Perry Studios instead.

The suit, which was filed in a U.S. federal court this week, names Perry and representatives for the U.S. Army and civilian authorities overseeing the Fort McPherson transformation as defendants.

Perry has yet to comment on the legal action.
