Tyler Perry wants to work with Diana Ross so bad he's written a movie for her!

Diana Ross hasn't acted since 1999 but the Madea mogul wants to change that. Diana received Oscar praise for her work in Lady Sings the Blues so that will be a tall order!

Perry said the following about the upcoming role:

I have the perfect role for her. And I haven't shot that movie yet because I'm waiting for her to say yes.

It's a jazz movie set in the 1940s, and (Ross) would play a jazz singer who runs a juke joint (music venue), and I just wish she would do it.

Will this be Diana's big screen comeback?! We'll find out if she says yes!

    Why in the hell did Tyler Perry not ask Whitney Houston to this movie??? she's perfect for this role & not diana ross.

    Will she be able to put down the bottle long enough to memorize her lines?

    Re: FLOFLOFLOFLO – Why was Whitney more perfect for this role then Miss Ross? Diana Ross is an Oscar nominated actress who once played jazz legend Billie Holiday. In fact- it was for this role that she got the best actress nod. Tyler Perry loves Diana and wrote the role specifically for her. IMO she deserves a movie comeback -and I hope she decides to do it.

    LOOK, ANY TYLER PERRY MOVIE SUCKS IF HE'S THE DIRECTOR.. HE SUCKS, SPIKE LEE WAS RIGHT. WHAT HE DID WAS GET USELESS, CRAPPY BLACK MOVIES AIMED AT THE LOW LIFE'S WHO BOUGHT INTO THEM BY GOING TO SEE THEM (MADEA MOVIES). THEN USED THE PROFIT TO "ATTEMPT" TO MAKE A REAL MOVIE BUT NOBODY IS BUDGING… WHY?? CAUSE HE'S STILL THE SAME CRAPPY DIRECTOR AND STORY WRITER THAT DID THE MADEA FLICKS. SMFH, PERRY DOESNT GET IT. bESIDES, DIANA IS RICH SHE DOESNT NEED TO WORK. HEARD WHEN SHE DIVORCED SOME DUDE YEARS AGO SHE HAD A HUGE SETTLEMENT IN TENS OF MILLIONS IF NOT CLOSE TO $100 MIL. SHE DOESNT CARE FOR A PERRY SHIT FLICK. NEXT.

    Re: FLOFLOFLOFLO – I HEARD OF THIS FLICK TITLED JAZZMAN'S BLUES OR SOMETHING TO THAT EFFECT. ABOUT A YR AGO I HEARD WHITNEY DID AUDITION FOR THIS ROLE AND THEY LIKED IT. BUT PERRY AND WHITNEY HAD OTHER PROJECTS AT THE TIME UPCOMING SO THIS WAS ON THE BACKBURNER. WHITNEY'S NEXT PROJECT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE WAITING TO EXHALE SEQUEL: GETTING TO HAPPY. SUPPOSEDLY WAS TO START FILMING IN THE NEXT FEW MONTHS. GUESS WHITNEY DIED… SO PERRY IS AFTER DIANA ROSS AGAIN, SMH… SHE PROLLY CANT STAND HIS CRAPPY DIRECTING AND DOESNT WANT TO RESPOND. SHE'S RIGHT - GOOD!!

    None of the movies Tyler creates are "good". They're just movies that make profit, which is the only reason in my perspective, to keep him around. Its sad, because his movies are about as original today as mainstream pop is in the music industry. Sad Sad World, making money off stereotypes in society.

    I've been waiting for years for Diana Ross to make a "comeback" to acting… she did some really great work back in the day and I think a Tyler Perry movie would be a great venue for her to shine…. plus, a new track on the movie with her singing would be Oscar/Grammy gold…
