Since we mentioned Taraji P. Henson getting a star uptop, we also want to make you aware, if you haven’t already heard, that she and Tyler Perry have a new film in the works called “She’s Living My Life,” which hits theaters Easter weekend (March 30) of next year.
The film is based on Henson’s loyal ways as a good wife, while she eventually gets fed up with having to deal with her husband’s constant betrayal, according to the Hollywood Reporter. This project will be the third time Perry and Henson have worked together. It started in 2008 with “The Family That Preys” and 2009’s “I Can Do Bad All By Myself.”
In addition to this new film, the Perry is working on “A Madea Family Funeral,” which will debut in theaters on August 3, 2018. The comedy features a family trip to Georgia that takes a turn for the worse.
Perry’s forthcoming “Boo 2! A Madea Halloween” will hit theaters on October 20.
