Amy Smart, Cocoa Brown, Terry Crews and Eddie Cibrian have joined the cast of Tyler Perry’s "Single Mom’s Club,” Lionsgate announced on Monday.
They join Perry, who as previously announced, will star in the film alongside Nia Long, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Zulay Henao, and Ryan Eggold.
Perry is producing the film with Ozzie Areu and Matt Moore via his Tyler Perry Studios banner. The film is scheduled to be released theatrically on May 9, 2014 by Lionsgate.
Written and directed by Tyler Perry, the feature is being filmed at Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta, Georgia and began production Monday.
The story follows a group of single mothers from different walks of life who are brought together by an incident at their children’s school. They create a support group that helps them find humor in the obstacles of life, as well as their inner strength to overcome their personal challenges.
Perry’s most directoral project “Madea’s Witness Protection,” opened over the summer and went on to gross over $65 million. His next film, “Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor,” opens March 29, 2013.
