Colombiana Zulay Henao joins Tyler Perry movie!

According to Blackfilm.com, Colombian actress Zulay Henao has been cast as the second of four female leads in Tyler Perry‘s next movie ‘Single Mom’s Club,’ joining Perry, Wendi McLendon-Covey, and William Levy.

In addition to writing, directing and producing, Perry is expected to star in the film, which follows a group of single mothers from different walks of life who are brought together by an incident at their children’s school. They bond and create a support group that helps them find comedy in the obstacles of life, as well as their inner strength to overcome their personal challenges.

 

Henao will play the role of Esperanza and paired with Levy’s character Manny.

Perry will produce along with Ozzie Areu and Matt Moore. Production will start at the end of the month in Atlanta, where Perry’s production company is based.

Henao’s film credits include ‘Hostel: Part III,’ ‘Boy Wonder,’ ‘Takers,’ ‘Illegal Tender’ and ‘Fighting’ with Channing Tatum and Terrence Howard. The Colombian native had a starring role opposite Omari Grandberry in the 2007 dance film, ‘Feel the Noise,’ which was produced by Jennifer Lopez. She recently shot ‘White Space,’ a sci-fi action-horror film starring Holt McCallany.

Lionsgate will release Tyler Perry’s Single Mom’s Club on May 9, 2014.

Janet Jackson returns to film in Perry’s "Married" sequel

Janet Jackson returns to film in Perry's "Married" sequel

Janet Jackson will reprise her role in Tyler Perry’s comedy sequel “Why Did I Get Married Too.”

The thesp will again portray a successful author and psychologist who prefers to analyze other’s relationship problems rather than deal with her own marriage.

Jackson’s the first announced casting for the project other than Perry. Lionsgate announced in March that it had acquired rights to “Why Did I Get Married Too” and “I Can Do Bad All by Myself” with Perry writing, directing and starring in both projects.

“Bad,” which features Perry’s Madea character, is set for release Sept. 11.

“Why Did I Get Married Too” has been set for release on April 2, the start of next year’s Easter weekend. The first pic, based on Perry’s stage play, grossed $55 million domestically.

‘Madea Goes to Jail’: #1 at the box office again!

'Madea Goes to Jail': #1 at the box office again!

Jonas Brothers proved this weekend that they are no Miley Cyrus. The teen pop stars’ 3-D concert film, Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience, opened in twice as many theaters as last year’s Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus Best of Both Worlds but grossed a scant $12.7 million at the box office — less than half of Cyrus’ bow.

Jonas still managed to pull in a solid average of $10,000 but grossed far less than what most prognosticators were predicting. It also wasn’t strong enough to best Tyler Perry’s Madea Goes to Jail, which won its second weekend in a row with $16.5 million. Madea‘s total now stands at $64.9 million.

Oscar winner Slumdog Millionaire showed that the Academy Awards can mean something at the box office, grossing $12.2 million in its widest weekend of release since bowing more than four months ago.

The Danny Boyle-directed film’s total gross soared 45 percent for the weekend and now stands at an impressive $115.1 million. Liam Neeson’s Taken became the second unlikely film of the year, after Paul Blart: Mall Cop, to cross the $100 million, grossing an additional $10 million its fifth week of release. The film, whose gross stands now at $107 million, dropped an amazing 12 percent — not bad for an under-the-radar action thriller. And rounding out the top five is New Line’s He’s Just Not That Into You.

The romantic-comedy ensemble grossed $5.9 million to put its total at $78.5 million. The other new wide release, Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li, grossed $4.6 million as expected, for an eighth spot in the line-up. Box office as a whole was up 11 percent for the frame, which is quite impressive considering it was a pretty quiet weekend as everyone awaits the debut of next weekend’s Watchmen.

Exclusive! First pics of 'Madea Goes to Jail' with Sofia Vergara

For all you fans of Tyler Perry and the sultry colombian actress Sofia Vergara, we just got these 2 exclusive movie stills of “Madea Goes to Jail” to be released February 20th, 2009. If you haven’t found out what the movie is about, here is the official synopsis:

At long last, Madea returns to the big screen in TYLER PERRY’S MADEA GOES TO JAIL.  This time America’s favorite irreverent, pistol-packin’ grandmomma is raising hell behind bars and lobbying for her freedom…Hallelujer!

After a high-speed freeway chase puts Madea (TYLER PERRY) in front of the judge, her reprieve is short-lived as anger management issues get the best of her and land her in jail.  A gleeful Joe (TYLER PERRY) couldn’t be happier at Madea’s misfortune.  But Madea’s eccentric family members the Browns (DAVID and TAMALA MANN) rally behind her, lending their special “country” brand of support.

Meanwhile, Assistant District Attorney Joshua Hardaway (DEREK LUKE) is on the fast track to career success. But Hardaway lands a case too personal to handle – defending young prostitute and former drug addict Candace Washington (KEISHA KNIGHT PULLIAM) – and asks his fiancée and fellow ADA Linda Holmes (ION OVERMAN) to fill in on his behalf.  When Candace ends up in jail, Madea befriends the young woman, protecting her in a “motherly” way as only Madea can.

Based on Perry’s successful stage play, TYLER PERRY’S MADEA GOES TO JAIL is written, and directed by Tyler Perry.  The film is produced by Reuben Cannon.  TYLER PERRY’S MADEA GOES TO JAIL also stars RONREACO LEE, VANESSA FERLITO, VIOLA DAVIS, ROBIN COLEMAN, SOFIA VERGARA, and BOBBI BAKER.
