Joe Holland/CBS Atlanta- An Avondale Estates Waffle House will close Monday morning to allow crews to film scenes for a new Tyler Perry movie.
AVONDALE ESTATES, GA (CBS46) -
Filming for a new Tyler Perry film called "Single Moms Club" got underway early Monday morning on East College Avenue in Avondale Estates. The production required a partial shutdown of the road during the morning rush hour.
The Monday morning scenes called for the use of a Waffle House. At 4:00 a.m., third shift workers were busy preparing the restaurant before film crews arrived. One Waffle House employee said he drove across three states on short notice to be a part of the production.
"I cleaned a store just last night (in Mississippi), and I drove straight here, trying to get ready for this movie," said Wayne Winstead.
The film, which is written, produced and directed by Perry, is scheduled for release in May of 2014. According to movieweb.com, Perry will also have a lead role in the film.
