Angela Bassett will co-star with Tyler Perry in Lionsgate Films’ “Tyler Perry’s Meet the Browns” says The Hollywood Reporter.
Bassett will play Brenda, a single mother living in inner-city Chicago who takes her family to Georgia for the funeral of her father, whom she never met.
There, she is introduced to the Browns, her father’s fun-loving, crass Southern clan. Brenda also finds romance along the way.
Perry will portray Madea and Uncle Joe in the film. Production begins this summer at Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta for release early next year.
