Most recently, Perry shared that he’s open to doing a third part for his hit project “Why Did I Get Married,” but he would want Janet Jackson and Jill Scott to sign onto the pending film first. He said,

“If Janet [Jackson] and Jill Scott say ‘yes,’ there may be a Why Did I Get Married Again?”

Perry added,

“So, waiting for them to say it. Waiting for the word.”

“Why Did I Get Married” is a comedy-drama film that was released in 2007. The plot centers around a winter retirement between four couples, who have been best friends since college. The film highlights the different marital struggles the couples are dealing with; such as infidelity, finances, losing a child, and more.

The movie stars Tyler Perry, Janet Jackson, Jill Scott, Malik Yoba, Sharon Leal, Tasha Smith, Michael Jai White, Richard T. Jones, Denise Boutte, and Keesha Sharp. The second installment – “Why Did I Get Married Too?” – was released three years later in 2010.
