It’s a wrap for Tyler Perry! At least when it comes to the big screen. The man also known as Madea is hanging up his filmmaker hat for good after directing 17 movies the last 10 years. Now he’s focused on getting his coins via his successful TV shows on OWN. The change comes on the heels of his latest movie, Single Mom’s Club, which was also his last as he ended his relationship with Lionsgate.
According to Black Enterprise:
Perry said he wanted to mark his anniversary in filmmaking by saluting one of the most overlooked people in our country—single moms. The movie is about the strength of the single mom, whom Perry calls his heroes.
The Single Moms Club, starring Nia Long and Amy Smart, is about five struggling single moms who form a support group. The film opened March 14th with $8.3 million at No. 5. It reportedly fell short about $10 million of studio expectations. It was Perry’s second lowest opening ever as a director, debuting weaker than 2007’s Daddy’s Little Girls, which opened at $11.2 million, according to Box Office Mojo.
