I just never want to see Oprah sitting in a bathtub talking to a ghost ever again. A hungry ghost at that

Who is going to write the screenplay for this movie? If TP writes it it's going to suck.

Yeah, yeah, yeah… he loves tellling Black women’s stories.

Something better is the 1619 Project that will be on HULU next month. It will show how slavery and Black Americans a impacted world wide economics, law, religion, migration. Perry cain’t wrap his mind around something like that let alone produce it.

Is he a man? He's always telling women's stories. That's very telling.

Great idea for a movie but if Tyler is writing the script it will be a mess.

His core audience is predominately female.

It's sad to say but Tyler Perry is not a good film maker. I don't trust him to do anything other than the poorly written stereotypical movies and shows that made him a billionaire. He only knows how to cater to an audience that loves Madea. He brags about writing a full season of a TV show in one day. I don't know why he thinks his success equals quality.

^^Duh, I know his core audience is mostly women. And water is wet. That wasn't my point.

His audience is mostly woman. But what are the demographics of these women? Education Level, Income Bracket, Age or are they put in one bag and called Church Lady's. Oprah likes Medea but she got tired of her written into every show he wrote.

Unless he incorporates Madea in there it will be a mess just all over the place trying to pass Spanish women off and everything.

Y'all don't like Perry, cool. Who else is out there telling the stories about Black people. I guess we could leave it up to white people, but that would be a problem too, I'm guessing

We could just leave the story to be told by white people. Then they become the heroes of the movie about black people.

Annnnnnd. Tyler Perry looks even more clownish, if that's possible, when compared to anyone on that list.

Mr.Perry in one breath wants to tell people he doesn't get the funding for his movies like others do.In the next breath he's telling us about the island he purchased in the Bahamas and his new house in Wyoming. Tyler Perry is making alot of money doing everything himself and giving his audience medicrosy. He knows who his audience is and we're accepting because we want to support a black man.He won't hire writers so he can keep all of his money and brag. This movie sounds like it would be a good watch but he's going to give us bad wigs and abunch of dialog that doesn't follow the movie.If this sounds interesting to you you might want see if there's a book first and read it because you will probably be disappointed in the movie.

No, I don't like Tyler Perry and I don't have to. And no, he don't own the rights to tell Black people's stories. He's a one trick pony and his writing is subpar. Basically he writes for people on a lower intellectual level or somebody into escapism. Nothing he writes is stirring, moving, thought provoking or intellectual. He's basic, he sucks, he knows it and you know it. Lol.

Tyler has some decent films "Meet the Peeples", & the recent one for Netflix - about the biracial woman in the south who falls in love with a dark skinned negro during Jim Crowe - that I never saw, but the trailer looked decent - so, it's possible that he could do a decent job of writing the script and directing a cast. However, for a story like this - centered on the achievement of black women - should be handled by an Ava D, Oprah, Spike Lee, Malcolm Lee etc - someone who has access to Oscar winning writers that could bring this film to life. Tyler's resume is too shoddy to really do this thing justice. Hopefully, I'm wrong.

He does have a couple decent films, but they're overshadowed by the tons of garbage he makes. Just look at what he did to "For Colored Girls..." where he added characters (!) and had no idea how to transfer a play to film. I just wish he'd stop tryna tell stories about Black women. Dam, we got it bad enough without his azz tryna define us.
