Tyler Perry Writing Sci-Fi Movie; Was Disappointed by PROMETHEUS

     June 27, 2012


Prometheus will probably best be remembered as one of the most disappointing films of the past several years.  I still can’t conjure up the vitriol I’ve seen directed at the movie, but I can understand the disdain of those who were excited by the prospect of Ridley Scott doing a big, bad-ass sci-fi film, and then having the plot crumble to dust if you gave it so much as a sideways glance.  Tyler Perry was not a fan of Scott’s latest film, but he’s still a major fan of sci-fi, and now he’s going to try his hand at the genre.

Hit the jump for more, and click here to see Perry in the trailer for Alex Cross (a man who, the trailer informs us, should not be crossed).

Speaking to Blackfilm.com, Perry noted his passion for the sci-fi genre:

TYLER PERRY: I love Sci Fi, I love the Alien movies and the Alien franchise. I was very disappointed with Prometheus, but I love that whole franchise. Those are my favorite movies. I’m actually working on a sci-fi movie right now.

Can you tell us a little bit about that?

PERRY: No, but I’m writing a sci-fi movie that I’m really excited about.

You may recall that Perry had a brief cameo in J.J. AbramsStar Trek, so it’s not too surprising that he’s re-iterated his love of sci-fi.  I’m not exactly sure what kind of science fiction Perry is going for, but if you go by Star Trek and Alien, it looks like he prefers the extraterrestrial variety.  Then again, maybe he’s just working on Madea Goes to Outer Space or something.
