As I mention in a post a while ago that Tyler Perry was doing this movie, it was suppose to be out next year but hey what do you know it will be out this year. I am truly happy to see that also I want to say I love the movie posters, nice. Now about the movie and cast sorry to say Jill Scott is not in this movie although she should have been. So here we go:
See the new character posters and movie photo from the Tyler Perry adaptation ‘For Colored Girls’, starring Janet Jackson, Thandie Newton, Kerry Washington and Kimberly Elise. A group of African-Americans face the struggles and journey toward self respect experienced by black women in America.

Lionsgate and Tyler Perry appear to be tossing their hat into this year’s Oscar race.
The studio announced this morning that Perry’s next picture, “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf,” will premiere on Nov. 5 … and not in 2011 as was expected.
The star-studded film, an adaptation of Ntozake Shange’s landmark 1975 stage study of the African-American female experience, packs Anika Noni Rose, Kerry Washington, Janet Jackson, Kimberly Elise, Phylicia Rashad, Loretta Devine, Tessa Thompson and Thandie Newton into its ensemble.
Clearly, the studio feels Perry’s drama can compete in the annual awards race. Perry had success just last year as a producer for Lee Daniels’ “Precious,” which won two Oscars (for screenplay and co-star Mo’Nique).
More on “Colored Girls” as it begins to screen, but this is a very good sign for Lionsgate, a vote of confidence for Perry, and a shakeup for the still forming Oscar picture.
So looking forward to this movie are you? No trailer available yet.
