Shadowbox Studios Underway on 1.2 MSF Expansion of Movie Studio Campus in Atlanta

by John Nelson

ATLANTA — Shadowbox Studios, a TV and movie studio operator formerly known as Blackhall Studios, is underway on expanding its studio campus in Atlanta from nine soundstages to 31. The 1.2 million-square-foot expansion project will grow the locally based company’s footprint to total 2 million square feet. The move follows a $500 million financing commitment from Silver Lake, a private equity investor with more than $88 billion in assets under management. Silver Lake will partner with existing investor Commonwealth Asset Management, which remains the majority shareholder of Shadowbox Studios. The capital injection will also be used to fund Shadowbox’s studio developments underway in London and Los Angeles. Deutsche Bank, EY and Sidley Austin represented Shadowbox in the financing transaction with Silver Lake. Farrer & Co. and King & Spalding also provided legal counsel. Latham & Watkins represented Silver Lake. The existing Atlanta studios for Shadowbox Studios served as filming locations for movies such as Jumanji: The Next Level, Jungle Cruise and Godzilla: King of the Monsters. The construction timeline for the expansion project was not disclosed.
