Mrs Brown to have guest role in new Netflix Madea film



MRS BROWN WILL be making her way onto the worldwide stage next month with the release of a new film in which the character has a starring role. 

Brendan O’Carroll will feature as Agnes Brown in a new addition to the US film franchise about Madea – a character made and played by US actor and director Tyler Perry.

Madea is known for being an elderly and tough woman based on Perry’s mother and aunt.

There are several films in the Madea film franchise including Diary of a Mad Black Woman and Madea Goes to Jail, most of which were released in the 2000s. 

The character has returned for a new film, A Madea Homecoming, which will focus on the college graduation of Madea’s great-grandson. 

It was first reported in 2016 that Perry and O’Carroll were working together, with US entertainment website The Wrap quoting Perry as saying he was “putting a movie together” for the two characters. 

Earlier today, Entertainment Weekly published a first glimpse of the new film with images of Mrs Brown’s starring role. 

The magazine reports that the film will be on Netflix from 25 February. 

'Hallelujer!' Madea returns in first look at Tyler Perry's A Madea Homecoming

“I was looking at the state of the world and how polarized it is — nobody's laughing,” says Madea’s creator, Tyler Perry.

Fresh off satirizing the end of the world in Don't Look Up, Tyler Perry is going back to his roots to deliver audiences a much-needed distraction from troubling times — Hallelujer!

That's right, Madea is officially out of retirement, and EW has your exclusive first look at her new adventures in Netflix's upcoming Tyler Perry's A Madea Homecoming.

"I was looking at the state of the world and how polarized it is… nobody's laughing," the writer-director-producer tells EW. "Nobody's getting the chance to belly-laugh anymore. And I'm like, 'What tool do I have in my arsenal that can bring that kind of laughter?'"

Perry, who talked about retiring Madea as he premiered A Madea Family Funeral in 2019, said returning to the character he first introduced onstage in 1999 was "like putting on gloves" he's worn before. The latest story in the franchise that began onscreen with 2005's Diary of a Mad Black Woman centers around Madea's great-grandson's college graduation, but hidden secrets and family drama threaten to destroy the happy homecoming.

Part of that family drama, Perry reveals, revolves around an LGBTQ story line, something the director hopes sends a message of inclusion to audiences. "How long does it have to be before you understand something?" says Perry, referring to those who harbor anti-LGBTQ sentiment. "Even if you don't understand, be open... I just think that if everything gets accepted in love, then you get a chance to see the person for who they are rather than what you think they are."

The film features all-stars of the Madea franchise, including Tamela J. Mann (Cora), David Mann (Mr. Brown), Cassi Davis (Aunt Bam), Brandon Black (Tim), and Isha Blaaker (Davi), as well as a guest appearance from Irish actor Brendan O'Carroll, best known for portraying the potty-mouthed matriarch Agnes Brown on stage and in the BBC sitcom Mrs. Brown's Boys.

Watch Tyler Perry's A Madea Homecoming when it hits Netflix on Feb. 25, and check out an exclusive first look at the film below.
