Tyler Perry to Battle Self in Spring 2011


It's not unusual for directors to have two films come out in the same year, but Lionsgate isn't giving Tyler Perry much breathing room. The studio announced today that they will distribute Madea's Big Happy Family on April 22 of next year, even though his adaptation of For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When The Rainbow Is Enuf is slated for January 14. He hasn't even shot either one yet. Looks like someone's overcompensating! [Deadline]

    Boycott this anti-union, doesn't know how to direct or write for the life of him person.

  • I felt this coming. We may see a few more major film directors actually going back to the old school way of doing things by filming more than 2 projects in a year. In the early, 1900's prior to sound and shortly thereafter, directors were sometimes creating 4-8 films in one year. That's a stretch for many music vid directors nowadays. Tieuel Legacy! aka The DDAd
