Tyler Perry has established himself as a successful writer, director and producer for stage, television and film. He got his breakthrough in films with the highly successful 2005 release ‘Diary of a Mad Black Woman’, a film which he wrote, produced and acted in. He also adapted his play ‘Madea’s Family Reunion’ into a movie, which too was a success. He works on many projects simultaneously and always has a movie waiting to release — whether it is as an actor, writer, producer or director.
As a master of entertainment gimmicks, Tyler Perry has made a polarized fan following with Madea’s makeup and wig. So, it was a shocking surprise when Perry announced the retirement of his cult character with the 2019 movie, ‘A Madea Family Funeral.’ At this point, the question that might be circling your mind is what is the next Tyler Perry movie? Well, you are at the right place. Here’s the list of upcoming Tyler Perry films scheduled to release in 2019 and 2020. We can only hope that the new Tyler Perry movie would be as good as some of his recent ones.
1. A Madea Family Funeral (2019)
When ‘A Madea Family Funeral’ hit theaters on March 1, 2019, it has been 20 years after viewers first met the bible wielding grandma. We have seen her in dozens of films, plays and series. “I just don’t want to be her age, playing her,” Perry said in a TV show. The Madea films span 10 installments and have swept around $500 million worldwide. The iconic character was first introduced in Perry’s 1999 play ‘I Can Do Bad All By Myself.’ The legend says that she was modeled on his mom, and the character stole the hearts soon with comical and vulgar language. The movie follows the hilarious and nightmarish events when a family reunion turns into havoc. Critics hailed Perry for coming back to form by blending insanity with humor.
2. The Haves and the Have Nots (TBD)
The Haves and the Have Nots, fondly called as HAHN, was renewed for a sixth season and premiered on January 8, 2019. The series, which is executive produced, written and directed by Perry, closely follows three families in Savannah, Georgia. The OWN drama is also considered as one of the most successful television series in the history of the network.The series has earned a considerable cult following with its moral conscience, affairs, conflicts, and dilemmas of the multiracial characters.
3. The Madea Revamp (TBD)
