Tyler Perry filming in McDonough, GA this month


Christmastime isn’t quite over in McDonough, GA.

Tyler Perry will be filming Christmas scenes for an upcoming movie in the town’s square on Jan. 16. The shoot is expected to take place around the Welcome Center, Party Time, and the Annex Building behind the Bliss cupcake shop.

Filming will also take place around the Square on the afternoons of Jan. 23-24. The movie is set to be released in December.

Though the town did not specify which movie Perry will be filming, based on the scene description and release date, it is most likely A Madea Christmas which is set to begin filming this month in Georgia. The film follows Madea as she helps a friend see her daughter at Christmas.

    The location manager/whatever they are called, came up to my Grandfather’s house and asked if he would let them film scenes in his back pasture, and my grandfather said no, he did not know who Tyler Perry was or about any of the movies. When my mother explained it to him, it was too late, the guy had already left.

It wasn’t until when my daughter came home from school, that I found out that Tyler Perry was filming his movie in McDonough, GA. If he is in need of some extra people email me please!!!! :)

    I make it a habit to read my local newspaper to stay on top of the goings on in Henry Co. I was reading the Henry Herald a couple of weeks ago and that’s when i found out about the filming, the days and streets that would be involved and approximate times, that’s how I was able to avoid the traffic.

    Rode by the base camp drop off site, then the actual base camp which had catering, trailers and hair and make up trailers. Totally cool to see. It is set up at New Hope Baptist. That freaking clothing trailer was neat! Have pics can email in! Now all I need is to get my daughter and her acting talents to cross paths with Tyler Perry. Not to mention my mother wants to see Madea before she kicks the bucket. :) My daughter kept saying mom I want this, I have to keep going with acting. :) View her on youtube at name Chloesworld2008 :) Such inspiration filled my 12 year old today! Thank you Mr. Perry

    Yes, Tyler Perry was indeed shooting a movie in Mcdonough. Early in the morning of Jan 16, 2013, I passed by the Square on my way to pick my brother u. They were just pulling in and setting up. On my way back to drop my brother back to his house, they had started filming. I shouted “Can I be an Extra in your movie please” as we drove by. I will be going back to the Square on these two days. Oh! and now, they have put a detour sign warning people that the roads will be closed on those two days…I will park and walk to the site…Yeah! I have been applying for my kids and I to have a part or become extras in Tyler Perry’ movies for sometime now. Hopefully I can get to be an extra this time around…Please, let me know…I will be there.
