This week it was announced that Tyler Perry Studios will be starting production on a new Madea film, “Boo! A Madea Halloween.”
The film will be distributed by Lionsgate and will be released in theaters Oct.21st. Perry is set to not only star as Madea, but write, produce and direct in the upcoming film.
The concept for the film came about even Perry and Chis Rock talked about including a fictitious Madea Halloween in his film Top Five. Lionsgate saw that and approached Perry about making the idea for real.
The synopsis of the Madea Halloween, according to The Jasmine Brand, is “Madea winds up in the middle of mayhem when she spends a hilarious, haunted Halloween fending off killers, paranormal poltergeists, ghosts, ghouls, and zombies while keeping a watchful eye on a group of misbehaving teens.”
The movie will be produced by Ozzie Areu and Will Areu. Production is underway in Atlanta.
