Tyler Perry halts $800M studio expansion after seeing OpenAI’s Sora: “I just don’t see how we survive”


Recommended Posts



In the intersection of entertainment and technology, a new topic is stirring up the internet. Tyler Perry, a renowned filmmaker, has decided to pause his $800 million studio expansion due to the rapid developments of OpenAI’s text-to-video system, Sora.


Perry, who had been planning this expansion for four years, was taken aback by the capabilities of Sora. Despite the potential benefits, such as avoiding hours of aging makeup, Perry expressed deep concerns about the impact of AI on the industry. He fears that the automation could lead to significant job losses, affecting every corner of the industry, from actors to sound engineers.


Perry believes that there needs to be regulations to protect the industry. He stated, “There’s got to be some sort of regulations in order to protect us. If not, I just don’t see how we survive”. Despite using AI in two of his upcoming films, Perry is worried about the future of the people he has trained and brought up in the industry.


This development raises several questions about the future of the entertainment industry. How will AI reshape filmmaking? What will be the implications for jobs in the industry? And most importantly, can a balance be struck between leveraging AI and preserving human roles in filmmaking?


What are your thoughts on this? Do you think the entertainment industry should embrace AI, or should it tread carefully to protect jobs? Share your views in the comments below.
