Another day, one other Tyler Perry Netflix undertaking! Today, Netflix has unveiled Straw, a brand new thriller/drama characteristic movie that Perry will write, direct and produce. 

Production on Straw is already underway in Atlanta, Georgia, at Tyler Perry’s studios. Preliminary manufacturing dates counsel the film might be filming for a full month between May twenty eighth and June twenty eighth, 2024.

What are you able to anticipate? The logline for the film is as follows:

“A single mother faces a series of unfortunate events that lead her down an unexpected path.  Struggling against circumstances beyond her control, she becomes entangled in a situation she never imagined.  Fueled by desperation, she finds herself at the center of suspicion in a world that seems indifferent to her existence.”

This is only one undertaking from the director, author, and actor, who has many previous and future initiatives arrange on the streamer. His most up-to-date output was Mea Culpa, which starred Kelly Rowland earlier this yr. That featured within the international high 10s for 3 weeks, choosing up 79.10M hours watched, equating to 39.6M views. Other prior initiatives embrace A Jazzman’s Blues, A Madea Homecoming, and A Fall From Grace.

Coming up subsequent, Six Triple Eight, the bold WWII biopic film, is due out later this yr. We’ve acquired two extra Madea motion pictures to sit up for, together with the already-filmed Madea’s Destination Wedding. On the TV aspect, there’s a brand new collection referred to as Beauty in Black within the works and one other yet-to-be-announced title. Perry can also be set to supply a brand new collection referred to as R&B.
