Here's a project that's been in the works since 2009, when we first announced it. I'd forgotten all about it, and I'm surprised to learn that it's still in development, and not dead. At least that's what we can gather from the below quote from the director Kasi Lemmons, revealed in an interview with women-centered site TheWip.net, posted just yesterday.

Cleveland get your still and recording cameras ready... I know we have readers in that Northeastern Ohio city, so I fully expect to some of you will snap photos and record video (or should I say "steal" some shots) while principal photography is happening, and email them to me so we can share here. I think most would agree with me when I say that of all the work Tyler Perry has done thus far, this one inspires the most interest and speculation for a variety of reasons - many we've already tossed around on this site. I'm genuinely curious to see how this all turns out in the end. Seriously; no joke here.
