Tyler Perry Still Looking For Success Abroad

Tyler Perry, whose Why Did I Get Married? has grossed nearly $40 million over the past ten days, defying industry predictions, now intends to disprove the notion that movies with black-oriented themes can not do business abroad, the Los Angeles Times observed today (Monday). Charles King, Perry's agent at the William Morris Agency, told the newspaper that Perry plans to challenge the status quo. "In the past, the studios used to say that movies about blacks or starring blacks wouldn't play outside of the South," he said. "That was a battle that was fought and won." However, the Times observed, Lions Gate, which owns worldwide rights to Married has revealed no plan for an international release. For that reason, Perry's production company is putting together an international strategy for its next film, Meet the Browns, due to be released domestically early next year.
