Perry will also serve as writer, director, and producer of the film, which started production today.

    I wish Tyler would let someone else write and direct. He should move into a producer-only role.

    @ Nicole: Your wish will be granted next year when "We the Peeples" is released.

    @D.C.: I can imagine it is hard for him to step back but like you I would like to see a fresh perspective. And yes, he is slowly but surely broadening his audience.

    Tyler Perry addressed the issue of him taking a step back. He said he doesn't know how to take a step back from a concept that developed in his head and he's very emotional about his projects. He has composed the music and worked with and selects the artist for his soundtracks. He said he put his hands on everything if he can. I would like to see him alow someone else to direct while he writes the script, or he can direct someone else work. It's always good to get a fresh perspective. However, to be honest alot of these black movies are a cookie cutter version of a movie Tyler has done in the past anyway, eventhough they try to mark their films as something new and creative. It looks like he trying to step up his game, we will see.
