Tyler Perry to Write and Direct 4 Movies for Amazon.

Amazon Studios announced on Monday that it has closed a four-picture film deal with powerhouse producer, actor, writer and director Tyler Perry. The pact will see Perry write, direct and produce four features for release on Prime Video.

"I'm excited and grateful to start working with Amazon Studios to bring movies to Prime Video," Perry said in a statement announcing the deal. "Jennifer Salke and the entire team have welcomed me with open arms. I'm looking forward to continuing telling unique stories and bringing my next projects to the global audiences that they reach."

"Tyler Perry is undeniably one of the most prolific creators of our time," remarked Salke, who serves as head of Amazon Studios. "He is a true multihyphenate who has defined his own incredible brand of storytelling and inspired people all over the world with his series and films. We are excited to collaborate with Tyler and his teams to bring even more of his fantastic signature films to our global audiences."

News of the deal comes amid a surge of recent successes for the billionaire media mogul. In 2021, Perry was honored with the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award at the Academy Awards and presented the Governor’s Award at the 2020 Primetime Emmy Awards.

Perry’s last three films - "A Jazzman's Blues", "A Madea Homecoming" and "A Fall from Grace" - were released by Netflix. "A Fall From Grace" attracted a reported 26 million viewers to the streamer in its first week, while "A Madea Homecoming" marked the 12th installment of the wildly popular franchise, in which he stars, directs, writes and executive produces.
