*With “Boo! A Madea Halloween” earning $56.5 million domestically on a $20 million budget, Tyler Perry and Lionsgate have decided to partner on two more films — one of which will feature Madea in yet another setting, reports Variety.
The studio has already made a ton of bank from releasing Perry’s “Madea’s Witness Protection,” “Madea Goes to Jail,” and “Alex Cross,” all of which starred the actor.
Together they Perry and Lionsgate have made nearly 20 films.
During a call with analysts following the studio’s quarterly earnings release, Lionsgate chief Jon Feltheimer said that the studio will continue to make films with the mogul. He kept mum on the other film mentioned as part of its new pact with Perry.
Lionsgate also said that it will partner with Hemisphere Media Group on a Spanish-language streaming video-on-demand service aimed at Hisapnic audiences in the U.S. The service plans to launch next year.
