Tyler Perry Retires Role of Madea In 20193 weeks ago by Amber Le in Movie News
Tyler Perry announced earlier this week that he will be retiring the Madea role. During an interview with Sirius XM, the legendary actor/director will be putting the notorious old lady to sleep next year with a film titled Funeral.
The production of the movie took place two years ago and will be releasing next year in 2019. Although it will be difficult to see her go, Perry’s reasoning behind ending the Madea franchise is simple.
“I just don’t want to be her age playing her.”
In 2019, Madea makes her 20 year mark since Perry first dressed up and took on the character. It’s been a nice run and she’s taught us so many unforgettable lessons that she will never be forgotten.
