Following his reveal earlier this week that he plans to retire the character, Lionsgate has released the first poster and trailer for “Tyler Perry’s A Madea Family Funeral” which sees Perry slipping on the dress and wig as Madea for the last time after eight films lead by her and at least three co-starring her in the last twelve years.
In ‘Funeral’, a joyous family reunion turns into a hilarious nightmare as Madea and the crew travel to backwoods Georgia and unexpectedly plan a funeral, which threatens to reveal sordid family secrets. The project is also the final film from Perry that is distributed by Lionsgate and will hit cinemas March 1st 2019.
Perry signed an exclusive deal with Viacom last year to produce content in television, film, and short-form video which goes into effect in May 2019 and will extend through 2024.
