Singer Janet Jackson has officially come on board to star in Tyler Perry’s next movie, “Why Did I Get Married”, based on the filmmaker’s stage play of the same name.Filming is scheduled to begin March 5th. in Vancouver and eventually move to Atlanta where Perry has set up his own studio.Sharon Leal, who co-starred in Dreamgirls and Jill Scott are also confirmed to be in the film. “Why Did I Get Married” revolves around a couple who go away with friends every winter to examine their marriages in a group setting.
Though this is obviously great news for Janet fans like myself, the scheduling date conflicts with past information given out about Janet’s upcoming tour.Prior reports had Janet’s tour starting some time in the summer but that obviously cannot be correct if she is now shooting a movie.
Rumors have been swirling around for some time now that Janet’s tour would not be happening and I guess this movie role can be considered an unofficial confirmation of that.
