Tyler Perry Opens Single Moms Club
His new writing/directing/starring job

Though he’s just dipped his toes into acting outside of his usual self-run studio system with Alex Cross, Tyler Perry is still keeping his own brand going, with Lionsgate locking down the rights to Single Moms Club.

 As is usual with most of his output – the Madea entries, the Why Did I Get Married? pics – Perry is set to write, direct, produce and star in the movie, which will find a group of single mothers bonded together after an incident at their kids’ school.

The group helps them all, and they end up bonding, finding inner strength and ultimately battling a centuries’ old demon that rises from the… All right, not the last bit. But come on… You’d watch Tyler Perry’s Single Moms Club Versus Cthulu, right? Admit it.

There’s no casting announced yet beyond the man himself, but he can usually attract some solid names.

Perry has most recently finished work on The Marriage Counselor, which will arrive next year and sadly unleashes the yet-to-be-determined acting talents of Kim Kardashian on the world. We’d still prefer Cthulu. As for Alex Cross (in which Perry inherits the mantle of the character originally played by Morgan Freeman), expect that one on November 30.
