Tyler Perry Reveals He is Killing Off Madea

FROM PEOPLE.com

Tyler Perry is ready to let go of the iconic tough-talking grandmother he introduced to the world almost 20 years ago.

The 49-year-old actor opened up about saying goodbye to Madea — whom he portrays — during an interview on Bevy Smith’s SiriusXM show Bevelationson Monday.

When Smith asked Perry if he was retiring the character, the director laughed and said, “It’s time for me to kill that old bitch, I’m tired, man! I’m tired.”

Perry revealed he completed the upcoming film A Madea Family Funeral two years ago but “didn’t want to go from [Boo! A Madea Halloween] to [Boo 2! A Madea Halloween] to another Madea [movie] so I put Acrimony in front of it.”

The star said he then wrote and filmed the upcoming Tiffany Haddish film Nobody’s Fool and will release A Madea Family Funeral next year.
