After scaring up an impressive $74 million at U.S. box offices with ‘Boo! A Madea Halloween’ last year, Lionsgate and Tyler Perry are teaming up to bring forth a sequel – ‘Boo 2!’
Written, directed, and starring Perry as the lovable, troublesome Madea, the film is reportedly already in production and will be hitting theaters a lot sooner than you’d expect.
The studio has set an October 20, 2017 theatrical opening for the movie, just in time for Halloween, as was last year’s first film which was a hit, grossing $74 million (domestic) on a $20 million budget.
The movie’s announcement comes just as rumors swirled the next Madea film would be titled, ‘Madea Gets Pregnant.’ No word, as of time reported, if that title is still (or was ever officially) in the works.
