Tyler Perry Studios has created 34th Street Films as an avenue for outside talent to write and produce projects that will still fall under the Perry brand name. According to Variety, Matt Moore is set to head this new division in the Los Angeles based area, while the rest of Perry’s team remains stationed in Atlanta.

At this time, there are no projects scheduled for production under the 34th Street Films banner. In July, Perry signed a deal with Lionsgate to produce three more films after the release of the upcoming Tyler Perry's Madea Goes to Jail. Those films will be produced under Tyler Perry Studios.

Tyler Perry's Madea Goes to Jail will open February 20th, 2009.
