Editor’s Note: This broke in Variety before the news of Michael Jackson’s death on Thursday.
Janet Jackson will reprise her role in Tyler Perry’s comedy sequel Why Did I Get Married Too, reports Variety.
The actress will again portray a successful author and psychologist who prefers to analyze other’s relationship problems rather than deal with her own marriage.
Jackson’s the first announced casting for the Lionsgate project other than Perry.
The follow-up is set for a release on April 2, 2010. The first film, based on Perry’s stage play, grossed $55 million domestically.
