Creator and actor Tyler Perry says that "A Madea Family Funeral" IS the last "Madea" movie... with the character we know NOW. But is that the last of Madea? According to Tyler, maybe not!

"I want to tell Madea's story from the '70s," Tyler says. "Flashback to the '70s, 'Foxy Brown,' tell that kind of story but with a real actress playing a role."

After almost 20 years (!) of playing his iconic character, Tyler thinks it's time for an actress to step into Madea's shoes (and maybe the wig!). But only time will tell.

Either way, we want to see that movie!

Luckily, Tyler has some more time before he hangs up his costume for good. He's on the road with his "Madea Farewell Play Tour," so you can see Madea and some other fan favorites LIVE!
