Renowned actor, producer, director and trailblazer, Tyler Perry, recently made global headlines after a star-studded grand opening of his 330-acre film studio in October 2019, which is the biggest in the world.

Following the unveiling of his 330-acre Atlanta-based film, Perry, sat in an interview with revered journalist, Gayle King, to disclose a much bigger project for the 330-acre studios complex.

Perry revealed he wants to open a compound for the trafficked, displaced, homeless women and youth.

The history maker of the world’s biggest film studio told King about what his legacy would be and said the studio would serve its original purpose but what excites him ''is building a compound for trafficked women and girls.''

Perry added the compound will also house homeless women and LGBT youth who are put out from their homes and misplaced.
