Latinos Are Good Business for Tyler Perry

William Levy And Eddie Cibrian Sign For Single Mom’s Club

By Bel Hernandez

Tyler Perry is a good business man, he is making sure his films have that Latino element that will surely bring in more Latinos audiences and box office dollars.  He has cast two of the hottest Latinos, Eddie Cibrian (The Playboy Club) and William Levy (Dancing With The Stars), in his next film Single Mom’s Club which began principal photography this past Monday in Atlanta, GA.

The story revolves around a group of single moms, from different walks of life, who band together after an incident at their childrens’s school.

Cibran, who recently starred in the short lived TV show The Playboy Club, is becoming a must cast actor for Perry.  In 2012 Perry cast him in one episode of his TV show For Better or Worse.  That same year also starred in Perry’s last film Good Deeds, Single Mom’s Club makes three – all shot in Atlanta, GA.

William Levy, who playes Manny in Single Mom’s Club, and who caught everyone’s attention on last years season of Dancing With the Stars (but already an international star on Spanish television), has also been spending a lot of time in Atlanta.  He recently filmed the drama Addicted for Billie Woodruff and guest starred in four episoded of Queen Latifah’s Single Ladies in Atlanta, CA.

Terry Crews and Amy Smart are cast in the top tier of Single Mom’s Club.  Perry produces along with Ozzie Areu and Matt Moorevia for the Tyler Perry Studios.  The film is expected to release in 2014.
