Tyler Perry and his 34th Street Films label is teaming with Korean entertainment conglomerate CJ E&M for an African-American targeted, English-language remake of Korean hit “Miss Granny”.
The body-swap romantic comedy featured a seventy-year-old woman who transforms into a young woman in her twenties. It earned $53.7 million from 8.65 million admissions in Korea and has already been remade for Chinese and Vietnamese markets with an Indonesian version on the way.
Actor-director Eugenio Derbez and his 3 Pas Studios is also set to produce a Spanish-language version. Both takes on the property will be released States-side sometime in 2018.
