Even before his latest film hits theaters, interest is already brewing about Tyler Perry's next production, based on the 1975 play For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf, reports MTV.com. The website says both Mariah Carey and Janet Jackson are in negotiations to star.
The play is based on a series of 20 poems about women, each represented by a color of the rainbow, with topics ranging from love to abandonment.
"Ntozake Shange's play is a magnificent tribute to the strength and dignity of women of color, and I think audiences of all generations will be able to recognize and embrace the experiences these women represent," Perry said in a statement.
Whoopi Goldberg, Halle Berry, Jill Scott, and Oprah Winfrey are already attached to appear in the film. For Colored Girls is currently expected to film in New York City this June and is scheduled for release in early 2011.
