Tyler Perry recently spoke with Page Six and the producer’s channel tv found out the following:
Tyler: “I’ve made my last Madea. It made so many people laugh, but turning 50 I don’t want to be her age playing her.”
About funeral fun being fitting for a finale, he says: “Look, nothing’s funnier than stuff that happens at a black funeral. Who’d let Madea plan a nice burial? And with a Beyoncé hat on? If you’re looking for ‘Schindler’s List,’ this ain’t it. I just want to make people laugh.”

March 1st is when the movie will be in theaters nationwide. Please help Madea go out with a bang by showing box office support.
