Looks like Tyler Perry isn’t quite done with Madea just yet. After taking a break from portraying the tough-talking matriarch to focus on his series on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN, Perry is once again donning his wig, glasses, and knee-high socks to play Madea in a new Halloween film.
Here’s how Lionsgate breaks it down:
In Boo! A Madea Halloween, 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.
In addition to Perry, the film also stars Bella Thorne, Cassi Davis, Patrice Lovely, Andre Hall, Yousef Erakat, Lexy Panterra, Diamond White, Liza Koshy, Brock O’Hurn, Jimmy Tatro, JC Caylen, Kian Lawley, and Mike Tornabene.
Production is already underway on the film in Atlanta, which will be released later this year.
