Madea Goes to Space? Tyler Perry Writing His Own Sci-Fi Movie, Was Disappointed with 'Prometheus'

When it comes to Prometheus, you either kind of liked it or you were really disappointed with it. Tyler Perry falls into the latter category. In an interview with Blackfilm.com, Perry, who claims to be a huge sci-fi fan, said that he was disappointed with Ridley Scott's film and that he was trying his hand at the genre.

"I love sci-fi, I love the Alien movies and the Alien franchise. I was very disappointed with Prometheus, but I love that whole franchise. Those are my favorite movies. I'm actually working on a sci-fi movie right now."

When pressed for further details, Perry became tight-lipped.

"No, but I'm writing a sci-fi movie that I'm really excited about."

Perry had a small cameo in J.J. Abrams' Star Trek. If we go by the Star Trek and the Alien franchise, perhaps he's crafting something of with an extraterrestrial tone. Then again, he could just be working on Madea Goes to Space.

Speaking of Prometheus, the viral marketing campaign is still up and running. Weyland Industries will be "recruiting" new employees at Comic-Con. You can check out the recruitment video below, which includes a website Project Prometheus. The site only says more info will be revealed in July.

Perry can be see in Madea's Witness Protection, opening nationwide this weekend.
