Lionsgate Films will develop two Tyler Perry's film projects of "Why Did I Get Married?" and "Jazz Man's Blues."

Extending its collaboration with writer/director/actor , Lionsgate Films is set to produce not only one, but two flicks of the man's writing works entitled "" and "Jazz Man's Blues."

Both urban-themed features, the former one will be made based on Perry's stage play of the same title which deals with the trials of marriage while the latter, set in the south in post-WWII, centers on a struggling singer who becomes a Ku Klux Klan's target after having an affair with the wife of a racist man.

Perry, who is also known as a playwright, previously enjoyed considerable success through his first two films, "" and its sequel "", which were also of Lionsgate productions. His next directorial work, "", will open on Valentine's Day also under Lionsgate banner.
