Chalk up Covington and Newton County to the list of metro Atlanta communities slated to build major movie-making facilities in an effort to siphon more (show) business from California. Already coined "Hollywood of the South" (under trademark), Covington/Newton plans a sprawling 168-acre complex near Interstate 20. That'd be smaller than the 288-acre campus planned for Fayette County and, ostensibly, whatever "huge" plans Tyler Perry has. [AJC]
