Why Did I Get Married ?Some critics have turned up their noses at his films, but there’s no denying Tyler Perry’s commercial track record at the box office — a winning streak that Lionsgate has just rewarded with a new two-picture deal.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lionsgate has acquired the rights to Perry’s next two films (titled The Family That Preys Together and Madea Goes to Jail) for an undisclosed sum. Keeping with tradition, Perry will write, direct, and star in both movies. From the article:

“Madea Goes to Jail”…is an adaptation of Perry’s play about a series of events that occur after Madea spends a night in jail. Both films are scheduled to begin production in the spring.

” ‘The Family That Preys Together’ and ‘Madea Goes to Jail’ are going to deliver everything audiences have come to expect from a Tyler Perry production: humor, uplift and unlimited heart and soul,” said Michael Paseornek, president of film production at Lionsgate.

Perry’s most recent release, Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married?, opened at Number One with a $21.4 million gross last month.
