Tyler Perry, Lionsgate Partner on Another Madea Movie

Tyler Perry and Lionsgate will partner on two more films, one of which will be a Madea movie.

The announcement comes on the heels of the box office success of “Boo! A Madea Halloween,” which has made $56.5 million domestically on a $20 million budget. Perry has been a staple of Lionsgate’s slates, with the studio releasing the likes of “Madea’s Witness Protection,” “Madea Goes to Jail,” and “Alex Cross,” all of which featured the actor. Together they have made nearly 20 films. Madea is the truth-telling grandmother character that Perry created and essays on screen. Critics tend to hate the films, but they have a loyal and devoted fanbase.

Lionsgate did not give any details about the other Perry project.

Lionsgate chief Jon Feltheimer announced that the studio would continue to be in the Perry business on a call with analysts following the company’s quarterly earnings release. Lionsgate also said that it will partner with Hemisphere Media Group on a Spanish-language streaming video-on-demand service aimed at Hisapnic audiences in the U.S. The service plans to launch next year.
