Reopening Hollywood: CEO Of Georgia’s Blackhall Studios On A Lively Production Hub Turned “Ghost Town”
Editors’ Note: Deadline’s Reopening Hollywood series focuses on the complicated effort to get the industry back on its feet while ensuring the safety of everyone involved. Our goal is to examine numerous sides of the business and provide a forum for leaders in Hollywood who have a vision for how production could safely restart in the era of coronavirus.

Before the pandemic left its nine soundstages empty, Blackhall Studios in Atlanta was bustling with production. Chairman-ceo Ryan Milsap said the place is currently a “ghost town,” but he’s optimistic that will change soon, hopeful that a surge of business will reverse the massive losses his and every studio has absorbed since film and television production shuttered abruptly in March.

While Atlanta’s financial incentives established that city as one of the country’s biggest production hubs, the city has been challenged beyond the pandemic. It is a focus

ViacomCBS CEO Bob Bakish On Production, ‘SpongeBob’ Theatrical Release And Revisiting Work With Covid-19
Hitting topics that are top of mind in Hollywood, ViacomCBS Bob Bakish said stalled production is a money saver now but needs to restart by mid-summer; that movies will be released in theatres as planned if they’re open and enough people are going; and that Covid-19 has spurred cost efficient work that will inform its business even after the pandemic abates.

As Bakish and ViacomCBS unveiled first-quarter financials, they were met with as much love today as they were savaged three months ago when the chief executive of the newly merged company described a vague digital concept called ‘House of Brands,’ killing the stock, which never recovered. But it surged today, up over 18% at one point, on more definitive plans for CBS All Access, gains for Pluto TV and overall numbers that beat Wall Street expectations and were up sequentially from the previous quarter.

Chris Pratt TV Series The Terminal List Set at Amazon

Chris Pratt TV Series The Terminal List Set at Amazon
Chris Pratt has spent most of the last decade in the once-unlikely position as one of Hollywood’s biggest breakout movie stars. However, despite a budding big-budget backlog, the A-lister is also planning a return to the medium on which he got his start: television.

This past February, Pratt signed on for a television project titled The Terminal List, on which he’ll serve as headlining star and executive producer. The project, which adapts the conspiracy thriller novel of the same name by Jack Carr, will see Pratt joined behind the camera by Antoine Fuqua, who is set to direct and executive-produce the pilot. The gig facilitates a reunion, due to Pratt’s co-starring role in Fuqua’s 2016 remake of The Magnificent Seven. With the key creative ducks in their proverbial row, the project now has a platform.

Here Are the Movies Still in 2020, and What’s Likely to Move Next
Pity the poor studio distribution executive, whose job has become a complex game of 3D chicken. First there’s the question of when theaters will reopen, and where. Then there’s calculus of how many people will feel confident returning to the movies, and how the necessary safety allowances (plexiglass? fifty-percent capacities? eating popcorn while wearing masks?) will impact the experience, to say nothing of the box office.

They must weigh releasing their films against these known unknowns, or consider the possibility of a streaming or VOD release — another kind of unknown, but one that might look more secure under these circumstances. That decision requires another kind of reckoning: Which films are truly theatrical experiences, and which are the ones that might do as well or better if they premiere in the audiences’ homes?

Truth is, many of the movies in which the studios have the most theatrical confidence have already landed 2021 dates.
