First Look: Will Smith As Madea In Tyler Perry Biopic "Hallelujer"

Will Smith is headed back to the big screen taking on the dual role of playing Tyler Perry and Tyler Perry as Madea in the filmmaker's biopic "Hallelujer".

Written, Produced, Co-Directed by Perry and directed by Derek Blanks, "Hallelujer" takes a dramatic look at Perry's rise to fame.

"He changed the way Hollywood looked at Black Films and Black Men in Drag," film historian Dexton Stein commented in the Times. "Not since Wesley Snipes played Noxema Jackson in To Wong Fu had such a huge impact been made."
