Currently in theaters from Paramount Pictures is the romantic comedy Nobody’s Fool, written and directed by Tyler Perry and starring Tiffany Haddish, Tika Sumpter, Omari Hardwick, Mehcad Brooks, Amber Riley and Whoopi Goldberg.
Trying to get back on her feet, wild child and recently released from prison Tanya (Tiffany Haddish) looks to her buttoned-up, by the book sister Danica (Tika Sumpter) to help her get back on track. As these polar opposites collide — with hilarious and sometimes disastrous results — Tanya discovers that Danica’s picture-perfect life — including her mysterious boyfriend — may not be what it seems.
This is Perry’s first R-rated comedy and first film through his new deal with Paramount. Perry signed an exclusive deal with Viacom last year, which will have him working on content in television, film, and short-form video. Under the terms of the agreement, Perry will produce approximately 90 episodes annually of original drama and comedy series for BET and other Viacom networks, and Viacom will have exclusive licensing rights on this programming. In addition, Viacom will have exclusive distribution rights to Perry’s short-form video content.
Sumpter currently stars in Tyler Perry’s The Have and The Have Nots for OWN and is also on the big screen, appearing in The Old Man and the Gun opposite Robert Redford and Casey Affleck. Hardwick currently stars as James “Ghost” St. Patrick in the Starz hit series “Power.” He previously worked with Perry in his adaptation of “For Colored Girls.”
Paramount will release the film in theaters on November 2, 2018.
