Tyler Perry

Lionsgate has announced that Atlanta-based director-producer Tyler Perry will reprise his signature role as the straight-shooting Madea in 'Tyler Perry's Madea's Big Happy Family.' The film is adapted from his new stage play, 'Madea's Happy Family,' which is currently on tour in the United States.

Tyler Perry’s much-anticipated new play, “Madea’s Big Happy Family,” made its Georgia debut in Macon last night. If you’re planning on seeing the play when it comes to Atlanta in April, make sure you arrive on time, as Perry spent last night publicly chastising several of the play’s latecomers.
