Lionsgate has officially set a release date for Tyler Perry’s next movie, Good Deeds; it’ll open in theaters on February 24th, 2012. Not quite Valentine’s Day, but close, for what looks like a romcom.

So, it looks like we won’t be getting our usual annual double dose of Tyler Perry this year; his last film, Madea’s Big Happy Family opened in April, and has passed the $50 million mark in box office ticket sales; about average for a Tyler Perry movie. He doesn’t have any other films coming out this year – films that he’s directing, specifically.

But not to worry, he’ll be back to form in 2012 with Deeds and I, Alex Cross shooting this year, for release next year.

The above photo includes most of the cast (noticeably absent is Thandie Newton); By the way, I learned that Brian White plays Tyler Perry’s brother in the film, and Phylicia Rashad plays his mother.
