Why Did I Get Married? picture

Extending its collaboration with writer/director/actor Tyler Perry, Lionsgate Films is set to produce not only one, but two flicks of the man's writing works entitled "Why Did I Get Married?" and "Jazz Man's Blues."

Both urban-themed features, the former one will be made based on Perry's stage play of the same title which deals with the trials of marriage while the latter, set in the south in post-WWII, centers on a struggling singer who becomes a Ku Klux Klan's target after having an affair with the wife of a racist man.

Perry, who is also known as a playwright, previously enjoyed considerable success through his first two films, "Diary of a Mad Black Woman" and its sequel "Madea's Family Reunion", which were also of Lionsgate productions. His next directorial work, "Daddy's Little Girls", will open on Valentine's Day also under Lionsgate banner.

I am a Tyler Perry fan, and I have respect for the issues that he explores in his stage productions and moveies. This is an area where I too have explored in writing, as well as bringing into these writings a social worker perspective. I am very interested in Mr. Perry perusing my work to see if it is something that he can use. My email is rena.williams@usm.edu Thank you, Rena Williams
