Lionsgate Gets Double from Tyler Perry

Why Did I Get Married? picture


Lionsgate Films will develop two Tyler Perry's film projects of "Why Did I Get Married?" and "Jazz Man's Blues."

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.
