Atlanta is home to the beginning stages of the upcoming Tyler Perry film, Boo! A Madea Halloween.

The film, which is scheduled for an October 21st release date, highlights Madea life as she spends Halloween babysitting a bunch of teenagers while fighting off killers, paranormal poltergeists, ghosts, ghouls and zombies (not the type of thing I would usually see MADEA taking part in).

Perry is listed as the writer, producer, directer and star of the film (sounds familiar).

Lionsgate releases a statement on the relationship with the all around talented Perry, and the upcoming film.

“We are thrilled to reunite with the iconic Tyler Perry, one of the greatest creative forces in entertainment and a beloved and cherished member of our Lionsgate family,” said Lionsgate Motion Picture Group Co-Chairs Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger. “‘Boo! A Madea Halloween’ brings together two great Lionsgate traditions — Madea and a Halloween movie — and we know that audiences will find the combination outrageous, hilarious and unbeatable.”

“Can’t wait for you to see it,” Perry writes on Twitter. “MADEA IS BACK!!!”

#IJS: Is Tyler Perry, or is Tyler Perry not the P. Diddy of film. He has to make a cameo in everything. Add that one ad-lib on everything. I’m just sayin’.
