Lionsgate skeds Tyler Perry’s ‘Girls’

Studio to release film on Nov. 5

Lionsgate announced Wednesday it will release Tyler Perry’s “For Colored Girls” on Nov. 5, instead of the pic’s original launch date over Martin Luther King weekend.

Move, which would position the film for year-end awards consideration, is meant to bolster the company’s remaining 2010 slate, said Lionsgate. The company typically has released a Perry-helmed drama in the fall, with last year’s offering “I Can Do Bad All By Myself” debuting Sept. 11 with $23.4 million.

“Colored Girls,” based on the play by Ntozake Shange, stars Thandie Newton, Kerry Washington, Janet Jackson and Whoopi Goldberg.

“It’s a serious film that really lends itself to the fall period,” said Lionsgate distrib topper David Spitz.

“Colored Girls” will go up against 3D toon “Megamind” and Todd Phillips-directed “Due Date.”
