Tyler Perry Taking A Break From Movies
|Tyler Perry Taking A Break From Movies|
Writer / Director / Actor / Producer Tyler Perry will be taking a hiatus from movie making. The Hollywood Reporter says that Perry’s long running contract with Lionsgate ended with the release of The Single Moms Club last month. On his website, Perry wrote: “This is the first time in 10 years that I don’t already have my next movie written or shot and ready to come out“.
Fans of Perry (like The Whore) can rest easy though. He currently has four TV shows he’s working on, all of them on OWN. The Haves and the Have Nots is a huge hit for OWN racking up over 3 million viewers each week. Love Thy Neighbor enjoys success in the sitcom arena, while For Better or Worse made its transfer from TBS to OWN. The fourth, The Single Moms Club continues the story told in the movie and will debut in the Fall.
The hiatus from movie making will only be temporary, but will probably not be releasing multiple films a year, as he has done thus far.
