Mega producer Tyler Perry recently wrote an open letter in support of George Lucas’ “Red Tails” film.
Lucas has gone on record to state that he had trouble getting funding for the film due to it’s all Black cast and he fears that it’s failure could cause negative repercussions to Black filmmakers like Perry.
“I realize that by accident I’ve now put the black film community at risk [with Red Tails, whose $58 million budget far exceeds typical all-black productions],” he said.
“I’m saying, if this doesn’t work, there’s a good chance you’ll stay where you are for quite a while. It’ll be harder for you guys to break out of that [lower-budget] mold. But if I can break through with this movie, then hopefully there will be someone else out there saying let’s make a prequel and sequel, and soon you have more Tyler Perrys out there.” (WATCH VIDEO)
Perry agrees…. and says in his letter that films starring an all black cast are on the verge of being extinct!

sent out a mass email yesterday to address all the controversy and hate he’s been getting surrounding his decision to cast Kim Kardashian
for a role in his new film, “The Marriage Counselor”.
Black actresses aren’t happy and many fans have expressed their disappointment about the situation. Some have even threatened to boycott the film if TP doesn’t boot Kim K from the project.
Well Tyler wants all his disgruntled customers to know that they’ve been hard and now can he wants a moment to speak…
I think many of you know that this is a very difficult time of year for me, so what I try to do is make sure that I’m working during this time. All I wanted to do was shoot a great film and try to keep my mind off the holiday grief that I have been experiencing for the past two years. I could not have imagined I’d be getting all these emails about Kim Kardashian. I HAVE SEEN THEM!! YOU HAVE BEEN HEARD!! …LOL.
Now, may I say something? Can a brother get a word in?….LOL. Y’all gave me a new movie title, Tyler Perry’s “Diary of a Mad Black Woman Cause You Hired Kim Kardashian, Don’t Make Me Take Off My Earrings and Boycott Yo A**.”…LOL. Some of my ladies are upset.
Ok, all jokes aside, can I have my say? Will you at least here me out? Continue Reading…
