Lionsgate has announced release dates for Tyler Perry's next 2 films - one that's already been packaged and on its way to production; the other that's still a mystery at this time, but the current working title should tell you all you need to know.

First, Perry's a dramedy titled Single Moms Club, which Perry is writing, directing, producing AND starring in, and which centers on a group of single mothers from varying backgrounds, who are brought together via an incident at the school their children attend, leading to the creation of a support group that helps all of them overcome personal obstacles.

Currently, Perry and William Levy are the only 2 attached to star.

Principal photography is scheduled to begin in November, in Atlanta.

Lionsgate has set Single Moms Club to open May 9, 2014.

Second, what's a year without a Madea movie? Lionsgate has scheduled an untitled Madea Christmas film to open next year, December 13, 2013. 

Of course Perry will also write, direct, produce and star.

So we can count 3 films on Perry's 2013 release slate - one he's writing, producing, directing and starring in (the Madea Christmas movie), one he wrote and directed, but doesn't star in (The Marriage Counselor), and one he only produced (We The Peeples).

Single Moms Club is his first 2014 movie announced. I expect there'll be 2 or 3 more added to that.

And let's not forget he's also busy creating and scripting new TV series for Oprah Winfrey's cable network OWN, in addition to the series already housed at TBS.
