In the wake of the success of Tyler Perry’s “Boo! A Madea Halloween,” Lionsgate has now ordered two more movies from Tyler Perry with one of them to extend the Madea franchise.
Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer announced the news to analysts on Thursday, confirming that the prolific writer, director, producer and actor will remain in business with the studio.
“Boo! A Madea Halloween” won the weekend box-office race last weekend with a strong $27.6 million. In the film, Perry’s popular character spends a haunted Halloween fending off killers, ghosts, ghouls and zombies while keeping a watchful eye on a group of misbehaving teens.
