Tyler Perry / Lionsgate production will soon be releasing 'A Madea Family Funeral', a laugh-riot movie starring Cassi Davis, Patrice Lovely, and Tyler Perry.
The film is written and directed by Tyler Perry who is also the creator of the character Madea or Mabel 'Madea' Simmons, an elderly tough woman. According to the official synopsis, Madea meets her family for a reunion that doesn't go as planned and the reunion unexpectedly turns into a funeral. The crew travels to backwoods Georgia where they must plan a funeral that also threatens to reveal sordid family secrets.
Perry said in an interview with SiriusXM radio: "I’m happy to kill that old b—. I’m tired man.” However, this might not necessarily mean that Madea will be dead.
Perry also mentioned that 'A Madea Family Funeral' will be the end for Madea as a character, who has been part of numerous films like ' I Can Do Bad All By Myself' (1999), 'Madea's Big Happy Family' (2010) and 'Boo! A Madea Halloween' (2016), to name a few.
"I’m doing one last tour in 2019, the farewell tour, and the last movie is Madea’s Funeral that I shot two years ago,” Perry told SiriusXM’s radio. He added, "So, we’re gonna say goodbye." During the interview, Perry also explained that the reason he took two years to release this film was that he "didn’t want to go from 'Boo' to 'Boo 2' to another 'Madea' movie" immediately. Hence, he released 'Acrimony' starring Taraji P. Henson in between. After which he decided to release 'A Madea Family Funeral', the final film with Madea.
“I just don’t want to be her age playing her,” Perry added.
'A Madea Family Funeral' will premiere in theaters on March 1, 2019.
