Tyler Perry is staying in the Lionsgate family. The multihyphenate,
whose "Madea's Family Reunion" debuted last month in the top
spot with $30 million, has signed on to write, produce and direct "Daddy's
Little Girl" for the independent studio. Lionsgate released "Reunion,"
which also held the No. 1 position in its second weekend in theaters,
as well as Perry's previous boxoffice topper, "Diary of a Mad Black
Woman." Reuben Cannon ("Reunion," "Diary") will
join Perry as producer of "Daddy's Little Girl," which is described
as a reverse Cinderella ("Cinderfella") tale about a young,
beautiful, successful female attorney who falls in love with a janitor
and single father of three daughters. Despite strong objections from the
attorney's father, love triumphs in the end.
