Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Tyler Perry has revealed the reason why he has sold his mansion in Atlanta and thinks that a sequel for “Gone Girl” could take place.

The actor was promoting his new flick “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows” when he was asked about his Atlanta mansion. The house fetched $17.5 million earlier this month and it was the highest paid property for a private home in the capital of Georgia.

Perry explained regarding the selling of the home, "I know this sounds ridiculous, but I wanted more land so I bought more land outside of the city. It's the same distance to the studio as my old house, but now I can have horses and pigs and organic vegetables."

The Atlanta mansion sits on 17 acres of land, has seven bedrooms, 15 bathrooms, two kitchens, a swimming pool with a waterfall, and an 18-seat theater. It is unclear where Perry has decided to purchase the new property and what are its features.

On the same interview, Perry talked ab out receiving his first honorary degree from Tuskegee University. He shared that it was exciting for him to have the opportunity to give a commencement speech.

In another interview, Perry talked about a possible sequel for “Gone Girl.” Perry played the lawyer of Nick in the movie and he shared regarding the rumors that a sequel is in the works, “I haven’t heard those rumors. But that would be really exciting, because I feel like there’s more to that story. And Gillian [Flynn], she’s brilliant, and would write something awesome.”

The movie was written by Gillian Flynn, both for the novel and the screenplay. She revealed back in 2014 that she was considering the idea of having a follow-up film to the first movie. The movie is said to be set several years in the future.

“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows” will be out in theaters this June 2.
