Lionsgate sets Tyler Perry pic for June

'Witness Protection' to June 29; other Perry titles pushed back

Lionsgate has set a June 29 launch for the comedy “Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Witness Protection” and moved back two other Perry titles — “We the Peeples” and “The Marriage Counselor.”

“Witness Protection,” starring Perry, Doris Roberts and Eugene Levy, will open against Paramount’s “G.I. Joe: Retaliation,” Warner Bros.’ “Magic Mike” and Disney’s “People Like Us.”

Romantic comedy “We the Peeples,” directed by Tina Gordon Chism and produced by Perry, stars Craig Robinson, David Alan Grier and Kerry Washington. It’s been moved from March 29, 2013, to May 10, 2013.

Universal has set “Identity Thief,” starring Melissa McCarthy and Jason Bateman, for release on May 10, 2013, as well.

Lionsgate shifted drama “The Marriage Counselor,” starring Jurnee Smollett and Vanessa Williams, to March 29, 2013, eight months back from its previously announced July 27, 2012, launch.

Two other wide releases are set for March 29: Fox’s “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters” and Open Road’s “The Host.”

Lionsgate has released a dozen Perry films from 2005’s “Diary of a Mad Black Woman” through “Tyler Perry’s Good Deeds,” which opened in February and grossed $34 million domestically.
