Nia Long Gets Lead Role In New Tyler Perry Film

Post By RelatedRelated Post

Nia Long recently got one of the lead roles in  Tyler Perry’s  new film, Single Moms Club.  Other actress receiving  roles are Wendi McLendon-Covey (think Reno 911! and Bridesmaids) and Colombian actress Zulay Henao are also starring in the film, but the fourth lead hasn’t been picked yet.

According to MovieWeb, the film is still in pre-production and is set to release in 2014:

The story centers on four very different single mothers, who are forced to come together after an incident at their children’s school. They create a support group where they discuss the obstacles of motherhood, and try to overcome their own challenges. Nia Long will play one of the mothers, Lydia, alongside Wendi McLendon-Covey as Jan and Zulay Henao as Esperanza.

Tyler Perry will direct from his own screenplay, and he will also star in an unspecified role. Tyler Perry is also producing with Ozzie Areu and Matt Moore.

Production is scheduled to begin at the end of November in Atlanta. We reported last month that Lionsgate will distribute.

Single Mom’s Club comes to theaters May 9th, 2014 and stars Tyler Perry, William Levy, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Zulay Henao, Nia Long. The film is directed by Tyler Perry.

  1. *Sigh*… another movie that probably trashes most black men, and lets one or 2 of the women find love in a light-skinned (or mixed) man. The Tyler Perry formula is becoming more formulaic….

    He panders to the female audience, and makes men look bad, instead of including the terrible choices that his female protagonists make that enabled these men to hurt them! It’s called accountability.

  2. Good maybe it will be something different !

  3. Somebody has to tell the story about how (SOME) black men ain’t shit. Lousy black men should be held accountable for their lousy actions. Black men are no longer the head of the black family because they’re, “not men”.

  4. I like this post, enjoyed this one appreciate it for putting up.

  5. I would like to use the opportunity of saying thanks to you for the professional guidance I have continually enjoyed visiting your site. I am looking forward to the commencement of my university research and the general planning would never have been complete without checking out your site. If I can be of any help to others, I would be thankful to help by what I have discovered from here.
