Tyler Perry has three projects slated for release in 2012, and with “Good Deeds” already in theaters, Tyler is getting ready to debut film number two, “Madea’s Witness Protection.”
The film stars TP as Madea of course, and American Pie funny man Eugene Levy as George, “a high level CFO at the center of a Ponzi scheme in New York City who is enrolled in the Witness Protection program along with his family in the one place that absolutely no one will think to look for them: Madea’s house down South.”
Starring alongside Levy are Denise Richards, Doris Roberts, Danielle Campbell, and Devan Leos as his family, and Tom Arnold will play his business associate. As a supporting role, Master P’s son Romeo will play Jake, a friend of Brian (an attorney also played by Tyler Perry who places the family in Madea’s care) who was affected by the scam. John Amos and Marla Gibbs also co-star as Jake’s father and Madea’s neighbor, respectively.
Once this film drops June 29, Tyler will go on to focus on his 15th film with Lionsgate, and the third of this year, Alex Cross, which is due out in the fall. Next year, he’ll release “The Marriage Counselor” with Jurnee Smollett. Check out the trailer for “Madea’s Witness Protection.” Do you plan to see it in theaters?
