A Madea Family Funeral trailer lays Tyler Perry character to rest

Tyler Perry doesn’t want to play Madea anymore

He said after his farewell tour, he will release the last Madea movie titled "A Madea Family Funeral" and that would be all.

"I just don't want to be her age [still] playing her", 49-year-old Perry said. "I'm exhausted, man. I'm exhausted".

'We gonna say goodbye in '19. Perry said Madea's final bow is titled Tyler Perry's A Media Family Funeral.

A tough elderly woman, Madea made her first appearance in Perry's 1999 stage play "I Can Do Bad All By Myself". The film will premiere in March and will be the last time the famed character will take over the silver screen.

The curmudgeonly character of "Madea" has helped to make Tyler Perry wealthy, but it sounds like he's now over her.

Tyler Perry's latest movie, Acrimony, starring Taraji P. Henson, was the cause of several Twitter arguments these past few months as Nigerian moviegoers debated the merits of the movie and it's intricate - if not, emotionally exhausting - plotline.

Spanning 10 installments, the Madea film franchise has garnered more than $500 million worldwide.

This will also mark the end of Perry's long relationship with Lionsgate, as the filmmaker has signed on to create new content with Viacom.
