“We’re taking the lead from our production partners,” said Frank Patterson, president of the sprawling Pinewood Studios, located in suburban Atlanta. The studio has been home to big-budget films such as “The Avengers: Endgame” and “Ant-Man” along with the television show “The Walking Dead."

“There’s not one place in the industry that’s making the decisions about when we get back to work,” he continued. “There are a lot of stakeholders. We’re working with the task forces of the studios and the guilds, unions and the associations. Just listening to everyone and making certain that when the industry decides it’s time to go back to work, that Pinewood Studios will be ready.”

Georgia has become known as the Hollywood of the South with a surge of film and TV productions companies and several studios opening up over the past several years. The entertainment industry shuttered productions in March because of safety concerns during the coronavirus pandemic. With Los Angeles County still under stay-at-home orders and production shutdown, some are looking to Georgia as a possible destination to film.

After Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp declared that nonessential businesses in the state could reopen in late April, Perry emerged with a strategic plan to reopen his massive 330-acre studio, which has become a production powerhouse rivaling Hollywood’s best.

Perry believes he’s ready to move forward at Tyler Perry Studios to produce his own content such as the BET series “Sistas” and “The Oval.” The Hollywood Reporter obtained a 30-page production protocol document to cast, detailing health measures from testing in their hometown, traveling on a Perry-arranged private jet and doing another rapid test.

  Reopening car showrooms could save the government £61m a day Calls for dealerships to reopen could make it easier to buy a carThe Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) argues that social distancing can easily be adhered to in car showrooms, which are usually large and sparsely populated spaces. Car retailers were categorised as non-essential retailers when the coronavirus lockdown came into force.

Tyler Perry will be the first to resume filming of his shows Sistas and The Oval. Netflix has moved production to Iceland, Sweden and South Korea.

Phillip Schofield begged for pubs to open in an impassioned rant. The This Morning host said 'people are going crackers' and that 'we've all got really good at social distancing' amid coronavirus crisis.

Many in the industry want to see how Perry’s protocol will unfold. The Screen Actors Guild said in a statement that it's uncertain when production will return.

“You’re going to have some discomfort at first that’s eventually broken by those who just want to kind of get back to the way things were,” said Kevin Hart, who filmed several projects in Atlanta including “Night School" and “Jumanji." The actor-comedian said he would be willing to fly from his home in Los Angeles to Georgia to film if it’s a “plan that we vetted out.”

Patterson said conversations between industry stakeholders about work safety protocols have been ongoing for nearly two months, and he wouldn't be surprised if “we figured out a way to return in the fall." He said there’s “immense pressure” to get the whole industry back to work, but the health of actors and crew is the priority.

“From a business point of view, if we were to jump the gun and start working, and we haven’t figured out how to do it safely, it might cost everyone in the long run," he said. "It would be a bad business decision and bad human decision. ... That's why we're moving a little bit more carefully and slowly than everybody wants us to.”

Katy Perry 'learning to be a mum fast' in lockdown with children

  Katy Perry 'learning to be a mum fast' in lockdown with children Pregnant Katy Perry has said she is “learning to be a mum fast” as she is in lockdown with children. The Roar singer is expecting her first child with actor fiancé Orlando Bloom, and is getting a crash course in parenting thanks to the coronavirus lockdown. The star is in isolation with small children – thought to be young relatives as well as Bloom’s nine-year-old son from his former marriage with Miranda Kerr.

While retail businesses may open for curbside pickup statewide, the new criteria would let counties seek state approval to allow dining in restaurants and Politicians welcomed the changes and several predicted they would soon be able to get the stamp of approval to move toward a wider reopening .

So being fixated on a screen while walking can’t be safe. “We know research-wise it’ s not a good idea, and common-sense-wise it can’t be a good idea So why do we do it? I talked to neuroscientists and psychologists about our conduct. All agreed that texting while walking might be a form of addictive

Some in the industry's workforce are willing to take a risk, while others have a more careful stance.

“I think people are more willing to take the chance of getting sick than the chance of losing their house or getting behind on bills,” said Shauna Galligan, a veteran stunt double whose credits include “Avengers: Infinity War," “Insurgent” and “The Walking Dead.” She’s returning to work next month as a stunt coordinator for an independent film in Alabama.

“I know a lot of my friends in L.A., they’re taking the precautions,” Galligan said. “I don’t know anybody that would not take work at this moment because of it. I think everybody is ready to take that risk and get life back to normal.”

Actress Wynn Everett understands the collective urgency, but she would rather play things safe.

“I really I love the work, but my main work is my family,” said Everett, who has made appearances on NBC’s “This is Us” and “House of Lies.” “I’m excited to go back when we go back to work. But I know, my priority right now is my kids and the safety of our family and the health of that.”

Along with Perry’s studio, other studios in Georgia have implemented their own health and safety plans, but are waiting to see if they coincide with the rest of the industry. Perry declined an interview request.

Pinewood is focusing on security, limiting the number of guest on sets and using a device to purify the air to try to stop the virus's spread. Another production company, Swirl Films, has recently installed LED screens and walls on their stages to create any kind of indoor or outdoor scene.

When the moment is right, studios owners say they will be ready.

“Film making is a glass half full," said Eric Tomosunas, owner of Swirl Films. “We have to look at what can we do to work with the pandemic, without compromising creative goals, anyone's safety or artistic integrity. It's all about taking the right approach."
