We've seen Madea go to jail, we've seen her at family reunions, and this October, Tyler Perry's most popular character will be getting into all sorts of supernatural shenanigans.
Production on a Madea Halloween movie—titled Boo! A Madea Halloween—has begun, Perry and Lionsgate announced earlier this week. The film is being shot in Atlanta, and according to a press release, Madea "winds up in the middle of mayhem when she spends a hilarious, haunted Halloween fending off killers, paranormal poltergeists, ghosts, ghouls, and zombies while keeping a watchful eye on a group of misbehaving teens."
Funnily enough, the film started out as a joke. A fake Madea Halloween movie was referenced in Chris Rock's 2014 film "Top Five," and Lionsgate later approached Perry about making the film a reality.
