New Netflix Film A Fall From Grace Was Filmed In Just Five Days
New thriller A Fall From Grace has arrived on Netflix and it's been revealed that the whole thing was shot in just five days.
The feature length film is the second in Tyson Perry's career and was written before 2018's Taraji P. Henson collaboration Acrimony.
The film was shot in his Atlanta studio before Christmas and at its premier on Monday, one of the executive producers and the president of production and development at Tyler Perry Studios, Michelle Sneed heaped praise on her team.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter on the red carpet, she said: "I think that we have one of the best crews in the business that I completely stand by. And it was quite the feat, but we've known each other for a long time. We are like a family, and we've had our presence in Atlanta for 25 years now, which makes a difference."
Matthew Law, who stars in the film, told the news outlet: "The stereotype is that using a black built production is slow," Law said. "That it's secondary, that it's subpar. And so to see this world-class production - not see because we know it already - but to be a part of it, it's so rewarding."
The film itself, as you can see from the trailer, looks like a gripping tale.
The official synopsis for the movie reads: "Disheartened since her ex-husband's affair, Grace Waters feels restored by a new romance. But when secrets erode her short-lived joy, Grace's vulnerable side turns violent."
Crystal Fox, who plays lead character Grace, said: "The script blew me away, but it was also juicy. I was in my house reading it to myself going, 'Ooh! Ooh.' It was hysterical, but it also made me think, which then made it even richer for me to dig into, to plant my seeds, and to not be afraid of going deep with my character."
Perry is proving himself to be quite the entertainment mogul, with more than 40 films to his name and his own huge Atlanta filming complex.
Executive producer Mark E. Swinton told The Hollywood reporter: "It does move his library forward - the way it was shot, the filters, the look, the artistic direction, our sets and all of that. The look of the film is unique, and it's a new diamond. But what's great about it is that it's still a Tyler Perry story."
A Fall From Grace is available to stream on Netflix now.
