Tyler Perry’s Madea is coming back for another round of trick and treats in the sequel Boo 2! A Madea Halloween, which has just been announced to arrive in theaters on October 20 of this year.
The 2016 comedy Boo! A Madea Halloween marked Perry’s return to the screen as star-writer-director after a two year absence and he came back strong, beating Tom Cruise’s Jack Reacher: Never Go Back on opening weekend, $28.5M to $22.9M, according to Deadline.
Tyler Perry wrote, produced, directed, and starred in the first film, which originated from Perry and Chris Rock including a fictitious Madea Halloween movie in Rock’s 2014 film Top Five. Lionsgate then approached Perry and suggested that they actually make the movie a reality.
Tyler Perry will once again write, direct, and star in Boo 2, along with Cassi Davis and Patrice Lovely.
Boo 2! A Madea Halloween comes trick or treating in theaters on October 20, 2017.
