Tyler Perry getting even filthier rich

Tbdtyler060807 As if the new TBS series House of Payne isn’t enough work for Tyler Perry, the writer/director is preparing his fifth film (and fourth he directed) for Lionsgate, Tyler Perry’s Meet the Browns.

The Hollywood Reporter says the story, adapted from Perry’s play, revolves around a single mother from Chicago meeting her crass Southern family when she goes to Georgia for her father’s funeral.

Seeing as how Diary of a Mad Black Woman and Madea’s Family Reunion made so much coin (and with Why Did I Get Married? coming out Nov. 16), we can see why this one is fast-tracked so it can make its 2008 release date.
