What's Next For Tyler Perry? Hopefully Not More Madea!

Tyler Perry-AGM-014246.jpg
Tyler Perry’s “For Colored Girls” has come and gone. Like most of his work, it was a critically panned, melodramatic, over the top and frankly annoying piece of cinema, but hey, it still made a boat load of cash. After a film like “For Colored Girls” which saw Perry (sort of) stepping outside of his safety zone, the idea of him going back to “Madea”, seems like a step backwards. What should Tyler Perry do next?

Stop directing. Why? Because since 2005 Perry has directed ten films, all garnering pretty low marks both artistically and technically. These films have been panned for stereotypica...

Janet Jackson Will Return To Music Next Year

Janet Jackson
Janet Jackson has assured fans she has not quit music for good - she's planning to hit the studio next year to record a new album.

The pop star has put her singing career "on the back burner" recently to concentrate on her acting work, with roles in Tyler Perry's movie sequel Why Did I Get Married Too? and his upcoming drama For Colored Girls. But Jackson is adamant she's not given up pop for good, and will return to making music in 2011.

She tells Larry King, "Just because I've made two films back to back... it's always been a dream of mine to do something like this, so I kind of put m...

Actress Thandie Newton, who has starred in dramatic films such as "Crash" and "Pursuit of Happyness", admits that her role in the highly anticipated film "For Colored Girls", is one of the most challenging roles that she has had so far.

In the dramatic film the English actress plays a rebellious and promiscuous bartender, which she says made her feel vulnerable and uncomfortable. Thandie told Comingsoon.net the following:

"I felt like I was possessed … I felt uncomfortable exploring this sexually-depraved, mean, negative energy. I really felt very vulnerable because it’s so not who I am, ...

Review: 'For Colored Girls' Would Have Been Better Suited For The Small Screen

November 3rd, 2010 10:00am EDT
Four Colored Girls
A good movie either needs the big screen, the big budget, or big stars to be worthy of an audience as large as Tyler Perry's. “For Colored Girls” would make a wonderful first season of a cable (or TBS) drama.

Tyler Perry's "For Colored Girls" is one of those movies that follows interconnecting stories of people going through struggles. The domestically abused, the sexually assaulted, accidentally impregnated, the barren, and hopelessly devoted. Think “Valentines Day” with rape.

The movie is not unlike that of a, or, well, six lifetime films in that it's about women who don't need men. Or ...

Tyler Perry Likes Giving Jobs To Black People, But Says He Doesn't 'Discriminate'

November 2nd, 2010 9:02am EDT
Tyler Perry
Moviemaker Tyler Perry has attacked reports suggesting he only hires African-Americans for his movies, insisting he does not discriminate.

An all-black cast for the actor/director's latest film, "For Colored Girls," was expected, but new reports suggest his entire crew was made up of non-white people as well.

But Perry insists he never sets out to create an all-black working environment.

He tells WENN, "I don't discriminate. I want to know who's the best for the job but I will ask, 'Is there a black person that is just as good?' when we're in the hiring process because it's very importan...

Megamind
I’m writing this week’s column on Halloween, so I wish my readers a happy and safe holiday. There are two things I’m looking forward to later tonight: a special Halloween screening of the cult classic “Evil Dead 2” at one of my local theaters and the premiere of the AMC television show “The Walking Dead.” As a zombie aficionado I’m curious to see how they will be able to stretch out the concept into an entire series. I’m hopeful that it will be entertaining.

Arriving this week in theaters are the Will Ferrell animated comedy “Megamind,” the roadtrip movie “Due Date,” the true life thril...

Janet Jackson: 'I Was An Actress First'

Janet Jackson
Janet Jackson is fighting back against fans who have accused her of dropping music for movies - because she worked as an actress years before landing her first record deal.

The singer has been showing off her acting skills in recent years, including roles in Tyler Perry's movie sequel Why Did I Get Married Too? and his upcoming drama For Colored Girls. And while the Nasty hit-maker is adamant she will return to music, she's reminding critics she got her first taste of fame with a role in 1970s sitcom Good Times - not with a record contract.

She says, "A lot of people feel I've given up ...
