Lionsgate snuck out the teaser trailer to Tyler Perry's 'Madea Goes To Jail' yesterday.
Based by Perry's play of the same name, 'Goes to Jail' focuses its story on Madea whose trouble-making act puts her behind bars.
Starring Perry as Madea, the film also stars Keshia Knight Pulliam as 'Candy', Vanessa Ferlito, Sofia Vergara, Derek Luke, Keke Palmer, David and Tamela Mann, Viola Davis, Judge Mablean Ephriam. Ion Overman, Ronreaco Lee, and Aisha Hinds.
After a high-speed freeway chase puts Madea in front of the judge, her reprieve is short-lived as anger management issues get the best of her and land her in jail. A gleeful Joe couldn't be happier at Madea's misfortune. But Madea's eccentric family members the Browns rally behind her, lending their special "country" brand of support.
Meanwhile, Assistant District Attorney Joshua Hardaway is on the fast track to career success. But Hardaway lands a case too personal to handle - defending young prostitute and former drug addict Candace Washington - and asks his fiance and fellow ADA Linda Holmes to fill in on his behalf. When Candace ends up in jail, Madea befriends the young woman, protecting her in a 'motherly' way as only Madea can.
Lionsgate will release the film in theaters on February 20, 2009
