Film complex coming to Covington

COVINGTON, Ga. -- A film company is planning to build a sprawling studio complex in Newton County.

Executives with Georgia-based Triple Horse say the company will build five new filming stages in Covington.

Triple Horse reportedly hopes the $38 million expansion will help solidify it and the Newton County market as one of the top film production sites in Georgia.

The five stages will be the first part of a $100 million expansion that will eventually include more post-production offices, filming equipment and other resources.

Thursday night, the Covington-Newton County Chamber of Commerce unveiled its new website, gocovington.com, which features information about all the film and TV shoots happening in the area.
