We hear that Tyler Perry is still on a very successful run, as more good news was released to us today. It seems that film studio Lionsgate, with whom Perry has an excellent relationship with because they have released all of his films, today acquired rights to two more Perry films. The films, Why Did I Get Married Too and I Can Do Bad All by Myself will have Perry writing, directing and starring in both projects. All of this is on the heels of Perry’s latest film, Tyler Perry's Madea Goes to Jail, lead the domestic box office the past two weekends as it has topped $65 million in its first 11 days of release.

In Perry’s new film actress Taraji P. Henson, (of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, fame which she was just nominated for an Oscar) is starring in the film which will be titled I Can Do Bad All by Myself. This film is based on Perry's play of the same name, and will begin shooting March 16th at Perry's studio complex in Atlanta and is set to be released Sept. 11th.
