Tyga and Tyler Perry

Director and playwright Tyler Perry continues his tradition of casting gay and bisexual men in his film projects.

Perry, 46, signed washed up rapper Tyga to star in his new movie, Boo! A Madea Halloween.

Both men have something in common. Perry has been plagued by persistent gay rumors, and Tyga's cover was blown when steamy text messages he sent to a transsexual Instagram model were leaked by a gossip blogger last year.

Perry announced his new movie during a guest appearance on The Real daytime talk show on Tuesday.

The film is set for release in theaters on October 21.

Variety -- Tyler Perry will write, produce, direct and star. Ozzie Areu and Will Areu will also be producers on the film.

The film originated from Perry and Chris Rock including a fictitious Madea Halloween movie in Rock’s 2014 film “Top Five.” Lionsgate then approached Perry and suggested that they make the movie.

“Boo! A Madea Halloween” will see Madea spending Halloween fending off killers, paranormal poltergeists, ghosts, ghouls and zombies while keeping a watchful eye on a group of misbehaving teens.

The film will also star Bella Thorne, Cassi Davis, Patrice Lovely, Andre Hall, Yousef Erakat, Lexy Panterra, Diamond White, Liza Koshy, Brock O’Hurn, Jimmy Tatro, JC Caylen, Kian Lawley and Mike Tornabene.

    Nothing about this movie sounds interesting to me. Maybe I need to see the previews.

  • Just Keya

    Tyler is always giving opportunities to the unknowns. Good for him. But I don't care nothing about this bean pole, nail tech, corny looking boy. Nope.

  • SummerBaby

    I like goofy Marlon

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    I like him okay. Fine line between goofy funny and goofy annoying.

  • Too Many Colors

    I like all the Wayans. Can you imagine dinner at their house when they were coming up???

  • SummerBaby

    True indeed

  • JJ

    I made a joke about a Madea Halloween movie long ago I figured he'd get very few gigs as an actor or director unless it was a Madea movie and it wouldn't be long before we saw Madeas Halloween, Madeas easter special, Madea day care etc Madea driving school etc. He's desperate to keep going but lacks creativity.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    And NOW! Because even their kids do comedy now. Their cookouts are prob film worthy they're so funny!

  • Buttercup

    Oh to be a fly on the wall! I'm fortunate enough to have older cousins, so I was young and watching In Living Color. I watch reruns and laugh like it's my first time seeing it.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    I'll watch. I watch the plays and movies and be ? laughing like it's the first time. I can do bad all by myself play started it all for me. I'm always down for a comedy. I know Madea will tell the ghost to get the hell out her house or pay 1 of them bills. Tyga got pedophile eyes?. Shifty like.

  • http://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    That could win the AVN Award for Clever Title of the Year

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Why did I turn on the tv just now and why is Little Man where Marlon played a midget playing a kid what is on TV?! LOL!!!!!

  • Buttercup

    Since I heard the recording of her saying that being on Fox News is just another acting gig, I get it now.

  • Buttercup

    The San smile. I miss her. Anybody talk to her lately?

  • LabellaMior

    I honestly think she loves the attention she receives for talking out the side of her neck. Almost like she gets a kick outta ruffling ppl feathers. For shock value.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    I saw. Stacey forgets her brother is/was hip hop and her skin is the color of chocolate milk. Let her be ignorant OVER THERE??? with Will and Jada looking for approval of milk colored peepa

  • Too Many Colors

    It was a gazillion of em too. I know their parents got TIED. Jesus.?.

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    He doesn't know yet! DF went back to work and I went to pick him up from school. DF, who is the type that never shows excitement, called 5 minutes after we left and told me don't tell the kids or anyone. He's bringing home a surprise to reveal it to them. My granny told me she's too old for surprises, just tell her ?

  • Yoni

    I promise I seen a poster for one that said "Madea Gets Pregnant." Sweatergawd!

  • LabellaMior

    Ok!

  • PettyEyezPrime

    EVERY SINGLE ONE. I also pray EVERY DAY thanking God for making me, me!

  • SummerBaby

    I do too! It keeps her relevant

  • Yoni

  • LabellaMior

    Right cause ain't nah soul checking for her movie Clueless!

  • Too Many Colors

    Why Jesus.?

  • Buttercup

    You know Jehovah's Witnesses don't believe in birth control. I always side eye one of my cousins who's a devout Witness but only had 2 kids.

  • Buttercup

    Extreme misconduct!

  • Yoni

    Man listen! MY black is beautiful.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    He doing a gender reveal? He is so happy. It's adorable when a man is SUPER into pregnancy. Please let us (me) know how he reveals it.

  • Too Many Colors

    My in laws. Her ass believed in it she went to have 1 baby and came home with 2. Had 7 total. Was like tie my damn tubes?

  • Buttercup

    I'm pretty sure I would go to be with the Lord from shock alone.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Your cousin sounds like my real estate agent who is ORTHODOX Jewish. But she sat in my living room and said, yeah, we're not supposed to, but I use birth control because my uterus is not a factory. She has 2 kids and got her tubes tied after this last one.

  • SummerBaby

    That was me too! We got surprise twins too! I thought I just had one big baby in me. Nope!

  • PettyEyezPrime

    1 baby bringing home 2...Told y'all this happened to my grandmother. Damn identical twins.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    So you had to run out and get 2 of everything?? No ma'am this is why I want all the tests done on me! I want to know in advance!

  • R in NYC

    These Madea movies have ran their course. No need to keep cranking them out.....they are no longer funny. The plot for this just sounds stupid.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    I thought I was the only one..

  • PettyEyezPrime

    I kept asking, just 1 right? My mom is an identical twin. I'm scared for next go round.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    She put up the?in get uterus?

  • Canary Red™

    OMG I thought the same thing...NASTY!

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Awww... look at my baby up thurre.

  • SummerBaby

    They came six weeks early. We had to run around and get all types of stuff. They stayed in the hospital for a week & they were all good.

  • Yoni

    Violation.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    I know a girl who is SCARY fertile. She is a singleton, but all she has is multiples. She got pregnant and had an abortion and it was triplets. Got pregnant again and decided to have them, it was twins. So her mama has told her to get on the pill or the shot or something because she will be end up with a ton of kids just because she makes nothing but multiples.

  • Miany

    lol its beautiful..... dragon father was into this pregnancy fore MOD was... lol... df wanted that son and he got it.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    WOW!!!!! That is crazy!

    Tyler looks like a drag queen in that pic

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    He's happy but still isn't outwardly emotional. He said it the same way he would say "Let's have chicken for dinner." He's almost always so damn chill.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I wish Tyler would stop making these Madea movies, but he obviously like to play dress up. LOL

    My plot would be to introduce Madea's sister (another man dressed in drag) and have Madea killed off.

  • Low E. {CIRCA 1908}

    The hood was rocking with the plays, way back when. The movies must be for country people.

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    I told her she could wait, she's only 90 and she said there's no such thing as "only" 90. She said she's old as dirt ?

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    Yes around the holidays. She's doing well.

  • Buttercup

    I'm so happy that Granny is in good company now. Bless you and DF.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    It looks as if someone nutted in his mouth and he's savoring the taste.

  • Empress

    Why would he choose Tyga? Let me go read it again.....Oh....okaaay, he "tapped" Tyga for the role. Oh well, yeah that makes more sense. Carry on.

  • MookieFly

    I was about to say the same thing. I'm sure there is a lot of tapping going on set. Tyga up top looking like a sad purchased hooker. Just disgusted and questioning her life choices

  • Mel

    In my opinion the Madea shows are better than the dam movies but I guess there are some black washed up has beens that need screen time so kudos

  • mela.reign77

    It's amazing to me to hear people say this man is gay (TP). No one has honestly seen him doing the horizontal tango with a man, however they still call him gay and for what? All because he found something that worked and is working for him and that is dressing up like a 70 year old woman. How many men have done this prior to him? A lot, and they are not gay just found something that worked for them. Let's name a few Flip Wilson, Martin Lawrence, Jamie Foxx, Robin Williams, Eddie Murphy ( Oh begeeezus) let take him off, but you all get my point. People are so quick to take a rumor and run with it and continue to breath life into it even though it holds no truth what so ever. Kids are not only bullies but so are some adults. I'm very proud of him and tilt my hat off to him to go from nothing, homeless, to giving birth to his vision. I say again if someone is gay or a lesbian who are we to judge. I have a past and to be honest this is the only thing that really stops me from heading head first into my vision. I don't think I could take how some of these people are treated. I like to joke around a lot but I hate bullying of any kind. I have nothing to say about Tyga. :)

  • Ms. YaYa

  • YES I SAID IT…

    For some odd reason Tyler Perry gives me that g*y man that is trapped in the closet and I really just want him to come out! ANyway, I can careless about his s*xual orientation I just hope that he is living in his truth and that he is truly happy bcuz everyone deserves to be happy. I wonder when will he introduce his new baby to the world... Anyway Tyga might as well take a chance in acting as too since his rapping career is dead. I'm really over here saying that there is something about Tyga that just ain't right.

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    I will go see it. I love me some Tyler perry

    Tyga has no rap skills, I'm sure he can't act. So the only reason someone/Tyler Perry would recruit this clown is for "favors".

    He did. I forgot all about that, too. He said she was an inspiration or some mess. I'on remember the name.

  • mzwhang90210

    No one has ever seen him doing the horizontal tango with a woman either.
    And to counter your examples...Flip Wilson, Martin, Robin and Eddie have all been married. Some have been married more than once. I mention that to say..that you compared Perry (who has never been married or even romantically linked to a woman), with men who wore dresses..but have been wed/born kids.
    Your argument, (while admirable) lacks logic and merit.
    How is folks speculating that he is gay..taking anything away from his body of work tho???

    What??? Tyler Perry may have not been linked to a plethora of women, however he has been with Gilila Bekele for awhile now. They also share a son " Aman Tyler". And you're right his sexuality has nothing to do with the body of his work, nevertheless I was responding to the write up my dear. So to sum it up we both have a difference of opinion which is okay. You said " Some have been married more than once. I mention that to say..that you compared Perry (who has never been married or even romantically linked to a woman), with men who wore dresses..but have been wed/born kids." My information above proved this to be a bit bias . Thanks for responding have a great day and keep warm :)
