Tyler Perry Dishes on How Chris Rock Inspired New 'Madea' Film

“Extra’s” Terri Seymour sat down with Tyler Perry days before the release of his new Madea installment, “Boo! A Madea Halloween.” During their chat, they talked about who inspired the film. “Chris Rock did a movie, 'Top Five,' and in that movie there was a spoof called, 'Boo! A Madea Halloween,'" he shared. “[It was] a movie that was really successful in his film, so from his lips to God’s ears, I hope this is the same!” The film centers around Madea keeping a watchful eye on some misbehaving teenagers while also defending them against killers, ghosts and ghouls. When Terri asked him if he is a Halloween fan, Perry responded, “Nope! No witches, demons, goblins. I don’t want to be at my house and hear something creeping up the hallway, not my thing.” The movie hits theaters this Friday!
