Tyler Perry’s experiment with adapting Ntozake Shange’s 1975 stage play For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf (the film title was shortened to For Colored Girls) was one of his most expensive offerings but didn’t see the same return as his more famous Madea comedies. So he returned to drag with Madea’s Big Happy Family. On Feb. 24, 2012, Tyler Perry returns to screen sans drag with Good Deeds
The first trailer has made its way online courtesy of Yahoo! Movies and looks to achieve what Pay it Forward did, only towards an African American demo.
Wesley Deeds (Tyler Perry) is jolted out of his predictable, affluent routine when he meets Lindsey (Thandie Newton), a down-on-her-luck single mother who works on the cleaning crew in his office building. When he offers to help her get back on her feet, the chance encounter with someone so far outside his usual circle ignites something in Wesley. This one good deed may finally spark his courage to exchange the life that’s expected of him for the life he’s always really wanted.
Tyler Perry’s Good Deeds is written, produced and directed by Tyler Perry, and stars Perry, Thandie Newton, Brian White, Rebecca Romijn, Jamie Kennedy, Eddie Cibrian, Jordenn Thompson, Beverly Johnson, with Phylicia Rashad, and Gabrielle Union.
