ABC NewsTyler Perry is ending his historic year with a teaser for his upcoming Netflix thriller, A Fall from Grace.
The creator of his signature Madea franchise wrote, produced and directed the film, which marks his debut on Netflix.
“I’m so excited to share with you the teaser trailer for my new film called A Fall From Grace,” Perry commented as he posted a clip on social media.
The film stars Crystal Fox as Grace Waters, a woman healing after her ex-husband’s affair, who finds solace in a new love. But her happiness is cut short when her new man wreaks havoc in her life.
A Fall from Grace marks Perry’s first movie release since celebrating the grand opening of his Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta in October. The facility is the only major film studio in the nation owned by an African-American.
“Another reason I’m so excited is that this is Crystal Fox’s first time playing the lead role in a movie (Hanna from The Haves And The Have Nots). Can you believe that?! After all these years?! Anyway, SHE KILLS IT!,” Perry also writes. “You will be guessing till the end. I promise, you won’t figure it out. I know you’re going to love this movie!!”
Perry also appears in the film, along with Cicely Tyson, Phylicia Rashad, Bresha Webb from The Last O.G., and Mehcad Brooks from Supergirl. A Fall from Grace premieres January 17 on Netflix.
The 50-year-old media mogul has a full slate of productions for the new year. His new series, Ruthless, a spinoff of The Oval, and Bruh, will debut in 2020 on BET Plus.
