Pinewood to Fayette: here we come

Phase One soundstages to be built at the Pinewood-Atlanta site in central Fayette. Rendering/Pinewood Studios.

Now it’s official: Pinewood Studios of London this morning formally announced its film and TV studio venture “coming soon” to rural central Fayette County.

In a press release, the company said construction will begin immediately on the “Pinewood Atlanta” venture with the first phase of five soundstages ready for action in January of next year.

Pinewood Atlanta will provide “a full service film and entertainment studio complex” on the 288-acre site directly across from Rivers Elementary School.

“The project is fully funded and will become a world-class studio for the production of film, television, music and video games,” according to the news release from Pinewood Studios, which is famous for hosting the filming of the James Bond movie series.

The first phase consists of the soundstages at 100,000 sq. ft. with another 100,000 sq. ft. of office space and 200,000 sq. ft. of workshops and service provider space.

Pinewood also cited a “vocational job skills training component” to produce the necessary workforce for the “hundreds” of new jobs to be created at the studio, but specific details are not being released yet. Economic developers have announced that approximately 2,000 jobs are expected to be a result of direct and indirect employment just in the first phase alone.

The second and third phases on the drawing board would add another 600,000 sq. ft. of stages and more than 70 acres of managed back lot space.

Pinewood Atlanta is a joint venture of Pinewood Studios parent company Pinewood Shepperton and a local investment group called River’s Rock LLC. River’s Rock is slated to fund the land and studio construction while Pinewood will provide the joint venture with sales and marketing services in exchange for holding shares in the company.

Though the project will be built in a very rural area of Fayette County just north of Piedmont Fayette Hospital, developers have pledged that the buildings will be a significant distance from Sandy Creek Road, and additional landscaping will be installed to further screen the development.

Plans are for the site to be annexed into Fayetteville to allow for the provision of sewer service to the site.

Actually... :)

I posted the link above, I do apologize for working a hard 45 hours per week to earn a living and stand on my own two feet; Due to this, I have very little free time to browse the internet, unlike all of you apparently. So while you are browsing the internet aimlessly, remember who is paying for you to do that (the people working and paying taxes-if you are on disability, social security, a government employee with too much free time, and welfare). Anyways, my point was not that I had a problem with CFA having their own views and expressing them, my point was that a big business expressed views on a really big issue that affects the people that bring money to their business. Make sense? Just making sure, because most of you just don't seem to get it.

Now, SB88, that...

...is the way to express your point! We get that! Nice job! Btw, don't forget those who might have time to browse the I-net could also be retirees that already put in 30-40 years of 45+ hour weeks (did you realize some people even work MORE that 45 hrs - GEESH; that cuts into the remaining 123 hrs of the week!), or people not at their jobs right now, or a gov't employee on break/lunch, or just the independently wealthy that don't need to work!

This is what you asked for

I think we are inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say, 'We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage.'

"I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about."

http://www.examiner.com/article/chick-fil-a-anti-gay-president-says-i-pr...

http://www.examiner.com/article/chick-fil-a-anti-gay-president-says-i-pr...

His company is sending the message that if you are gay or participate in gay marriage then do not eat at Chik-fil-a because they do not have the same belief, that was dumb on his part as a businessman. Just saying. I have work to do unlike all of you, goodbye.

Well, ok, SB88...

...I can see where you think that's 'bad-mouthing', but I don't read it as such. From his beliefs he said what he feels is right, concerning marriage. I didn't read anything disparaging about homosexuals themselves. As for a 'dumb' business move, I think you're overestimating how much economic power homosexuals have to really influence his bottom line (to inc. their supporters). Even those mainstream, liberal networks and publications try to paint homosexuals as about 1/2 of the population; they are in reality a very, very tiny minority. I think the massive failure of their Chick-Fil-A 'Kiss-In' demonstrates that point.

Also, for every homosexual who boycotts Chick-Fil-A there's probably 10 or more (if not many times that) heterosexuals whom he won patronage for his business for his expressed views, IMHO.

Butterflies don't do links. They just flutter around - aimlessly

Nobody badmouthed anybody. Dan (not Truett) Cathy said he believed that marriage was between a man and a woman. Same thing as Prezbo said before Valerie Jarrett grabbed him by the nose and told him to get serious with the homospandering.

Marriage between a man and a woman? Yep, same thing as I and millions of others have said and/or believed for thousands of years.

The publicity arm of the gay lobbying effort decided to make more of it as a way to get a couple of state to allow same sex couples to wed as a first of many steps into a slew of welfare and other benefits and to continue the theme of using the Great Society to create the Degenerate Society. Thanks, Lyndon. We are almost all the way there.

The Karma or irony will come when Pinewood wants to make a movie featuring a bunch of nancy boys flaunting their alternative lifestyle on land owned by the Cathy family in a studio managed by uberChristian Jim Pace. Zowie, thing about those phone calls. Speaking of that, I have never forgotten Jack Nicholson about20 years ago when he had a discussion with his obviously gay neighbor. Told him to knock it off with very colorful language. Loved it then, love it now.

I believe, reddawg...

...SB88 is referring to when he was quoted a few months ago as not supporting homosexual marriage, being a devout Christain, followed later by some loonies trying to have a homosexual 'Kiss-in' @ his restaurants, which ended up being a laughable farce. Of course he does provide employment for many of them and his company does not discriminate against them, but you see, to Liberals if you don't agree with them, then you're chastised for having you own beliefs.

I didn't realize that Pinewood is an all-homosexual movie studio; I guess SB88 is in the know on that... I imagine he'll make a tidy profit from his investment in the studio. Now that's good karma...

P.S.

Also, without homosexuality, our world would be crawling with teen moms and over population. One mother out of the army told her nurse this when the nurse inquired as to why she had 2 babies only a few months apart, "When we got out of the reserves there wasn't anything else to do." We are in a recession and many people do not have the funds to participate in activites, hobbies, or sports and so what is there to do for free? ....Sex. It's going to happen no matter what you say or do, so why not mind your own business and allow people to live in the land of the free and be free. Thanks.

Sexual prefernce isn't physically harming anyone, so why not focus on REAL issues instead. How about the fact that our tax dollars pay for prisoners to pretty much live at a secluded 1 star resort, while helpless, harmless pets/animals are put to sleep everday because the shelter cannot find them a home or provide them with food and shelter. Prisoners get 3 meals daily, a bed, a toilet, a televison, a "playground"/recess, exercise equiptment, church/bibles, education, honestly they seem to have it better than I do and I work 45 hours a week with benefits. I can't use my vacation time because I can't afford a vacation, but the prisoners are living pretty stress free. So why is everyone so worried about homsexuality again? Is it really that important? I mean with all of the Chinese made products coming into the US and all of the preservatives put into our foods, you guys will have cancer or dementia in a few years and won't even remember what homosexuality is anyways. Next time you sit down to eat a pre-packaged snack, Google the ingredients, you may be surprised by what you are ingesting. Look at the cheese and peanut butter crackers for instance, there is an ingredient that is used as fertilizer. Sound appetizing?

Open your mind, you will be happier

First of all, I am a she, not a "them" Thanks. Secondly, I do not see in my comment where I stated that Pinewood Studios was soley for homsexual artists, can someone please point out where I said that? Anyone? You guys are just angry closed minded men with sticks up your "you know what." I'm not even going to waste my time arguing. You guys should also choose your words wisely, you never know who may have different sexual preferences than you, it may even be your child. So before you make such judgemental comments, think about it first and who it affects. For all you know, your son could be homosexual, oh wait I'm sorry what was your lingo.. "nancy boy" and if he is and he hears your views that could change your relationship forever. Some kids even take their lives because of the homosexuality issue and bullying. Also, isn't it the devout Christians that molest children, and not just any children, but MALE children. That would make them, you guessed it, Homosexual! Devout Christians also believe that a virgin was impregnated by a spirit in the sky, but I won't even get started on that one.

Pointing it out, SB88:

"Truett Cathy bad mouthed homosexuals and now the family is building them a film studio to pursue their dreams."

'Them' is a pronoun used commonly to refer to a group. Since the only group referenced in your sentence was 'homosexuals' then we are told, by you, that Mr. Cathy is building homosexuals a movie studio (and no, 'family' is used as a singular noun in this sentence, not as a group as might be if written 'now the family is building themselves a movie studio').

I certainly hope you're not a Fayette Co. high school graduate, because I would expect better from you.

Oh, and - at least I - don't stick things 'up-you-know-what' (I'll assume you mean the anus) or currently have any such thing there. I understand homosexual males do have a penchant for that activity; you might ask them what that's all about, since - biologically speaking - that orifice is for the excretment of bodily waste.

Upon studying, you might find Christianity is about more than just the birth of Christ. Jesus, and many tales in the Bible, were real, historical events. You might like H. Keller's 'The Bible as History', as the author dissects many of the book's more famous stories and applies archaeological facts to them, making a case for their actual occurrence. Also, you must realize that Christians should'nt be made out to be perfect (or anyone, for that matter), but the gift of forgiveness and redemption before God is one of its driving forces. Those who choose to turn away from God and his Word will always be welcomed back into his loving arms.

Excuse me, but...

When you used the word them, I thought you were referring to myself. That was miscommunication on my behalf, not incorrect gramatical use. I went to A Fayette County high school, but NOT Fayette County High. That is neither here nor there because none of the schools in this state, let alone country, teach or prepare us for the things that we really need to know for life after school. I.E. body mechanics (I must have missed the manual that came out out with me when I was born), money management (Oh, the parents are supposed to teach these things? Is this before or after their 40+ hour work week, baseball games, soccer games, chorus and band concerts, you cath my drift.) how to write a check and/or money order, how to ship packages and use the postal services, how to obtain your vehicle tags, registration, emissions, how to fix a car (this is only available, to my knowledge, at White Water High which was built after I graduated), organization, time management, how to drive safely!!!!, how the court system works, how the state budgets our tax dollars (do we not need to learn these things?), we need street smarts as well as book smarts, I could go on and on, but I tend to get off topic a lot because I have a lot of opinions. So back to the original topic. I haven't had a chance to Google the article on the statement because I am not retired, on disability, on FMLA, on welfare, on worker's compensation, or on unemployment, nor am I a mother living off of a man. My time is as precious as a diamond and just as rare. I will Google it as soon as I possibly can, but the comment I just left and this one have taken 47 minutes of my 60 minute lunch.

I do not want to read anyones interpretation of the Bible because it is what it is, their interpretation. I have never seen or heard of any scientific evidence proving the existence of Christ, Jesus, or the stories in the Bible. What I do know is that The Church (The British Parliament) used to be what is now The Government. The Church "created" (preaches from) The Bible. My theory is that The Government aka The Church aka The British Parliament wrote the Bible as a set of guidelines or rules that they wanted society to follow. How else do you maintain harmony among citizens? You threaten them with the afterlife because it is unknown and therefore cannot be challenged. Church goers are hypocrites but in a polite way. I see many Church attending Christians that do the exact same things that everyone else does. They drink alcohol, they smoke marijuana, they beat their wives, they abuse their children, they molest children, they lie, they steal, they do the same things that non Church goers do, yet they are not supposed to. I used to see this as a problem, it is hypocritical, but now I see the difference. They may do all of these horrible things, but they keep it quiet and they act properly in society. Non Church goers do all of these horrible things and tell you about it too, there is no discretion in what they do. This is why my theory works, The Government aka The Church aka The British Parliament gets the model society that they anticipated, as long as everyone attends Church and reads the Bible, that doesn't make it scientifically true, but it helps. Out of time. Until tomorrow Goodbye.

Whew, SB88!

You reaaallllyy missed the most of the points in my post! As for Jesus, do a little research and you'll see it's true. Read the book I recommended and you'll probably find it very interesting. I'm not sure where you're going with the Church/Parliament rant; 'The Church' has been around far longer than the Brit Parliament. And, instead of focusing on those Christians who don't follow the word of God (and probably ask forgiveness for their sins, but, some probably don't), focus on how many more are helped, or saved, by the Word of the Lord - it's probably many times over the number of those 'bad Christians'.

Keep on learning; it'll help you form a good, solid base for your views in life when you grow up.

I will always keep learning,I learn something new everyday. Thank you for the unnecessary advice, but I believe you may be the one who needs it.

Gentlemen...

You can't argue with Socialist Butterfly. I gave up on reading her posts when she went from homosexuality to overpopulation to prison conditions to animal rights to food conspiracies - all in one breathless paragraph. I believe that's what a psychiatrist might call "flight of ideas." Clearly she is not well. As such, the best course of action is to ignore her... and hope that she is too high to reach a polling place on election day.

You need to educate yourself sir. Bipolar disorder is a condition in which a person has periods of depression and periods of being extremely happy. Symptoms include easily distracted, insomnia, reckless behavior, lack of self control (drugs, sex, alcohol), fatigue, hopeless feelings, sadness, etc the list goes on. Please do not use words to "call someone names" when you have no knowledge of the meaning. I work in healthcare, you are clueless. If you knew anything about Bipolar disorder,then you would know not to look me in the eye or argue with me, that is if I were really Bipolar :) Pick up a book once in a while, it's not just a saying for children.

That is one possibility, but it can also indicate other thought disorders.

Bipolar disorder was formerly called manic depression; an afflicted person might present with flight of ideas in the manic state. So, let's give it some time and see if she becomes more irritable, angry, withdrawn, etc. Then we may be able to reach a proper diagnosis among the various thought disorders... bipolar, schizophrenia, liberalism, progressivism, etc.

Unfortunately, there is so little difference between them that a valid conclusion can be difficult to reach.

At least you came up with the correct symptoms, but unfortunately you are not a physician so your opinions do not count. You are the loon in this case, I would love to hear your proper diagnosis Dr. Silver Star, not good enough for Gold? I find it humerous that you guys are trying to diagnose me with something that I work with everyday. Bipolar, Schizophrenia, and then Liberalism and Progressivism, you really are not the brightest crayon in the box are you? For one, the last 2 are not medical disorders Dr. Silver Star. Secondly, I am not a Liberal. I am not worried though, your generation will be in the nursing home soon.
Btw, the valid conclusion is difficult to reach because you have no medical knowledge or expertise.

Her rambling is quite broad, but she may just be young, passionate, and unfocused. Obviously she's a capable employee if she's busy and working 45+ hours per week.

To clarify - I would not poke fun at SB if I thought she was truly mentally ill. Based on a previous exchange with her, I believe your "young, passionate, and unfocused" assessment is likely spot-on. I'll join you in hoping that life experience and exposure to different ideas will lead her to more logical conclusions... and, perhaps, to a style of argumentation that is not based on the assumption that she is more informed and enlightened than everyone else.

Hey, asocial winged one

You want to get into it about gays and religion. Here let me educate you in the ways of the oh so peaceful, we mean no harm religion of the mideast. You know, the one that spawns attacks such as that one from 2 weeks ago.

I'm only going to say this once, and I am not going to reply to any more of your ignorant comments. In the early 90's before the Khobar tower bombing (you are surely well versed on that), my sister lived and worked just outside Riyadh on a hospital compound, staffed by a Canadian company, contracted with the Saudi government to provide very advanced western medical care. She was never allowed to leave the area without a male escort. She was never allowed to walk in front of or beside any male, she had to walk behind them. She had to wear the traditional garb, covered head to toe in black with a slit for eyesight. She accepted these customs as being part of the local culture when she traveled outside the medical compound. What she never accepted and found abhorrent was the accepted practice of male homosexuality, which was done openly and in full view of the public (including women and children) on the city streets, many times also in view of local law enforcement. She personally witnessed this behavior. So, to put it in your context, the abusive behavior of children and others of the same sex is not exclusive, and is obviously more tolerated in at least some regions where a majority of a faith other than Christianity exist. Do not waste your time arguing on here (to quote you above) as you are no where near making your case.
What a shame that you came on this thread and befouled it. You took some very positive, upbeat long awaited good news financed by a family and developers who have grown up here, work here, share their charitable good deeds here and participate in our community in every possible way to improve it. What a shame. I truly apologize to anyone who is offended by my post.

Are you kidding?

I befouled the post? Are you kidding me? How would you feel if your employer, father, uncle, brother, grandfather, charitable good person or persons, made a public statement regarding your sexual preference? That is what I have a problem with. I have this gift that allows me, or makes me rather, to put myself into someone elses shoes and I can feel EXACTLY how they feel, or would feel in their position. Sounds crazy, but it is hard to explain. I can imagine being this man's son, grandson, employee, or a friend and hearing his feelings on homosexuality, it would embarrass me and make me feel horrible about myself. A lot of people grow up in Fayette County and do not realize how it really is out there, or maybe it's just me. When I graduated high school and stepped out into the "real world," it was a shock and I had a rude awakening. I learned things that I never knew happened off of the television screen. There are a lot of homosexual men and boys that are bullied and mocked by society for how they feel towards another person because that person happens to be of the same sex. Because of this, they keep it to themselves and they try to live by societies rules. Just imagine if your child is homosexual, but has not told you because he is frightened of what you might think, and then you publicly make a statement on exactly how you feel about the matter. What do you think your child would be thinking aftwards, how would he feel? Would he try to end his life like some others have? Would he be brave enough to tell you? I can only imagine what kind of impression that statement put on the younger generations. You are right the family has grown up in Fayette County, they participate in charities, in fact, Chik-fil-a is served in most, if not all, schools now; the younger generation eats, breathes, and lives Chik-fil-a which is my point exactly. Chik-fil-a and any other companies that make an impression on children's minds should not make them feel ashamed, embarrassed, or scared to be who they really are; there are enough people out there doing it for them.

I apologize for any politically incorrect errors, spelling or grammar errors, etc, I am at work trying to squeeze this in during my lunch break. I usually am a fantastic writer; in fact my graduating class was the first to take the Writing portion of the SAT and I scored the HIGHEST. Thank you. Add stress, work, fax machines ringing, phones ringing, people chatting to writing and you have a scrambled egg mind. Any time anyone makes any sort of comments that can hurt another person, it affects me greatly; I'm sorry for caring for other people, that is the one characteristic that makes me weak, but honestly I think we need more people like me in this world.

...I feel you are getting frustrated (I'm an empath, too). Maybe when Pinewood Studio opens, if they film a Star Trek there, you could get a job as an empath. That way they wouldn't have to use an actor to fake it, like with that Deanna Troi character (of course, she was playing a Betazoid; probably a whole different kind of empath).

We still would like to see the article where Mr. Cathy bad-mouthed homosexuals. And, nice improvement on the grammar, especially when hurried as you said. Although, you might want to break that first paragraph into two or three; it runs on a bit.

You got it all wrong

Just because someone (aka The Cathy Family via Dan) stands up for what they believe, does not mean they are full of hatred and not sympathetic. On the contrary. Unlike you, they are receptive of other people's lifestyles and viewpoints, but just do not agree with them. As someone already pointed out, CFA employs likely thousands of people nationwide from the LGBT community. In addition to that, CFA also donates millions to various programs, camps, and foster homes where there are likely thousands more who belong to the LGBT community. Nothing has changed with CFA since the liberal media tried to hang them. They make good chicken sandwiches and use tons of their profits to help communities and kids and people in general.

SB88, you can ramble on about your worldly views and how educated you are, but at the end of the day, you have proven with your comments that you are not as intelligent as you think. You criticized the Cathy family (and CFA) for something they neither said nor did and then openly admitted that you do not remember exactly what they said but you would look it up when you had time. I can assure you, if I were going to call someone out as you did, I would know the facts ahead of time. Because after all, isn't knowing exactly what was said by CFA what shaped your opinion? Or are you like so many others who have relinquished the ability to think for yourself and are told what to think and believe by the media? By your several posts on this topic, I tend to believe you are the latter.

A new offering

will be available at the gate (see photo rendering above) for those who wish to order ahead. Pick it up at the drive thru there. Pinewood Poultry Pak. Includes sweet tea and scones.

Know what the name of the Chick-fil-A 2013 cow calendar is? No kidding, look it up on their website. Okay, here it is:

Royal T-Bones

Those Cathy folks and friends and associates have a great sense of humor, don't they? Fit for a Brit inside joke sense of humor.

This is going to be fun, me thinks.

I can't come close to that. You are officially the resident expert, then!

So, what say your spouse and you about this? Anything we should know? I bet you both should be at the ribbon cutting. I'm sure you could do some splainin' on how things are done here to the newcomers.

Variety is reporting that

River's Rock LLC is an independently managed trust of the Cathy family. The land and studio construction costs wild be funded by equity from River's Rock and a debt facility from Synovus Bank.

We are in the Hollywood Reporter, too. See below.

Those cows have gone Hollywood! Or should I say have gone Fayette now.

New ad campaign idea? "Let's make some MOOOOOvies, Fayette!"

I am confused. Rivers Rock LLC is registered with the same address as Group VI. Did they get the Cathy family to invest?

Proud new daddy

You know, I was doing some speed web browsing, and came upon it by accident. Now I don't remember where I saw it. It has lots of natural stonework, and heavy wood beams, and if I remember, it has a wavy top to it that has Pinewood Studios spelled out. Very craftsman style, heavy dark wood and stone, with maybe a pergola style top to it (not sure on the pergola part).

There was separate rendering showing the placement of this entrance/security gate along the entrance road, and I do believe we will not see it from the road. That's all I remember. Although I am personally over the craftsman style (too much and too dark and heavy looking and way overdone in local architecture) it seems suited there. Hey, maybe in a few years, some newly trained local talent can redesign it to reflect a more modern, lighter image!

Someone at the county has a copy of it, I am sure. The Citizen will show us soon, I am sure.

Welcome Pinewood!

I saw a rendering of the entrance gate, which will be way down the entrance road, away from the main road, and it is very well suited to our rural character. Totally unexpected, but a pleasant surprise. Jolly good and hip hip hooray for the Brits and Fayette County.

Well you have got to share the rendering! Ever since this announcement of Pinewood Studios I have been holding my breath for the official announcement from the Studio's itself. This will only be positives for all of Fayette County.

Excellent news (or confirmation I guess)!

A real big plus for FC and a fantastic ending to the WFB road fiasco.

Yes, Hopefully good

Hopefully it is a plus. However one could surmise that the proposed facilities in Douglass, Gwinnett, and Newton Counties will siphon some of the proposed revenue and talent. The conservative Tax Foundation has also questioned whether the film industry is worthy of state public investments because many of the jobs it creates are temporary and some are filled by people from outside the state.

The local investment group, Rivers Rock, appears to be a subsidiary of the local developer Group VI.
