Conversation With . . . Bassett, Cannon and Perry

18 03 2008

Our friends at MoviesOnline caught up with Tyler Perry, Reuben Cannon and Angela Bassett at the Los Angeles press day for their new movie, “Tyler Perry’s Meet the Browns.”

Based on the popular stage production of the same name, “Tyler Perry’s Meet the Browns” is a funny, moving, romantic drama about the power of love, the joys of family, and the possibility of second chances. A single mother living in inner city Chicago, Brenda (Bassett) has been struggling for years to make ends meet and keep her three kids off the street. But when she’s laid off with no warning, she starts losing hope for the first time – until a letter arrives announcing the death of a father she’s never met. Desperate for any kind of help, Brenda takes her family to Georgia for the funeral. But nothing could have prepared her for the Browns, her father’s fun-loving, crass Southern clan. In a small-town world full of long afternoons and country fairs, Brenda struggles to get to know the family she never knew existed . . . and finds a brand new romance that just might change her life.The movie is produced, written and directed by Tyler Perry and produced by Reuben Cannon and also stars Rick Fox, Sofia Vergara, David Mann, Tamela Mann, Lance Gross, and Jenifer Lewis. It features a return to the big screen by Perry’s beloved comic creation, the indomitable and outrageous Southern matriarch Madea.
