Tyler Perry set for Lionsgate slate

Dates set for untitled Christmas pic, 'Single Moms'

Tyler Perry is on the calendar for two more films for Lionsgate, including the multihyphenate’s first Christmas film dated for a Dec. 13, 2013, bow.

Perry will write, direct and produce the untitled Christmas-themed comedy. He’ll serve the same duties for “Tyler Perry’s Single Moms Club,” which Lionsgate dated for May 9, 2014.

“Single Moms Club,” which centers on a group of single mothers who create a support group, is also produced by Ozzie Areu and Matt Moore. The dramedy currently has the May date to itself, though Sony’s “Amazing Spider-Man” sequel kicks off the 2014 summer season the weekend before.

The date for Perry’s Christmas pic positions the film to play through the holiday; Warner Bros.-New Line launches “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” the same day, however.

In other dating news, Universal set a Jan. 17, 2014, launch for Kevin Hart-Ice Cube comedy “Ride Along” — the follow-up for “Think Like a Man” director Tim Story.
