Tyler Perry plans a sequel to "Boo! A Madea Halloween"

Happy Hallerween .. for the second time.

Tyler Perry plans to follow last fall's "Boo! A Madea Halloween" with a sequel, his imdb page indicates. It's not surprising, given that he considered the original the funniest movie he'd ever worked on.

Our quick interview with Perry at the "Boo! A Madea Halloween" from last year:

It was the first feature film he produced at the Ft. McPherson site he now owns. The movie is about a straight-laced single dad, played by Perry, who summons his outrageous Aunt Madea, also played by Perry, and Uncle Joe (ditto) to keep his headstrong teen daughter Tiffany (Diamond White) from wilding on Halloween.

To escape Madea's watchful eye, the daughter convinces her the house is haunted so Madea will hunker down. A clown appears in the attic and zombies attack. Spoiler: there are no actual haints, but rather fraternity members playing a prank.

Boo 1.0 earned Perry a worst-actress Razzie for his recurring role as Madea, as well as a worst-combo “award” Tyler Perry & That Same Old Worn Out Wig” are the official nominees. He picked up a worst director Razzie nomination as well. He doesn't seem real mad about it.

There's no plot listed yet via imdb but it's probably safe to suspect Madea, Aunt Bam (Cassi Davis) and Hattie (Patrice Lovely) will be back in their trademark comic action.

So .. look forward to "Boo 2."
