Recall my November post highlighting the 4 Tyler Perry movies that are scheduled to be released in 2012, wondering whether he should be concerned about overexposure?

1 he's directing (The Marriage Counselor), and 3 he stars in (Good Deeds, I, Alex Cross, and even though it hasn't been formally announced yet, he mentioned, in an interview that took place during the latter half of 2011, that he plans to release a new Madea film in 2012 as well).

He never gave any details as to what exactly this new Madea movie would be; but we now have some idea. Although, really, if you've seen one Madea movie, you've seen them all. 

According to a casting notice for extras (courtesy of both the Atlanta Fox affiliate and The Atlanta Journal Constitution website), Tyler Perry Studios is seeking extras for a project titled, Madea’s Witness Protection.

Yes, it looks like the as-of-yet titled 2012 Madea film has a title... Madea's Witness Protection. I can only imagine what that old hefty broad will be up to this time around.

Filming will reportedly occur in ATL beginning this month, continuing through March. Extras of all skin colors, genders and sizes are needed - although you have to be 18 or older, have a professional wardrobe and be available for 12 to 14 hour days.

No exact shoot dates are given (it just says January through March) by either Fox nor AJC, but both say to go to TPSExtras.com and click on the “How to Become an Extra” link for more details, where you'll find info on pay and application procedures. 

No synopsis yet either; it's not even listed on his IMDB page.

So there ya have it folks... remember it... Madea's Witness Protection... coming in 2012; likely during the latter half of the year.

Excited? :-)
