Lionsgate Bidding for More Tyler Perry Laughs

October 8, 2010

Lionsgate must love being in the Tyler Perry business almost as much as America Loves Madea! According to Deadline the studio is currently in negotiations to buy Take My Wife, a new comedy starring Perry alongside Dwayne Johnson and an unnamed actress (probably Perry again). Madea will be playing a divorced man who, to get out of paying alimony, hires The Rock to seduce and marry his ex-wife, in the process re-falling in love with her himself. Which sounds a lot like Steve Carell's remake of A Boyfriend for My Wife, which already sounded sort of like Extract, which was already a bit like Divorce, Italian Style. Which just goes to show that audiences will never tire of watching conniving self-cuckolding. Classic theme.
