Besides working on a new album, R&B singer Brandy has been hard at work rebuilding her film discography. It was recently confirmed that the former Moesha star will join Tyler Perry’s upcoming Lionsgate film, “The Marriage Counselor.”
Brandy, along with Robbie Jones, Ella Joyce and Jerry Stiller, will join already confirmed cast members Jurnee Smollett, who stars as the title character, Kim Kardashian and Vanessa Williams.
The “The Marriage Counselor” revolves around Smollett, who plays a newlywed marriage counselor that gives great relationship advice but finds it difficult to address issues in her own life. Gross will play her husband, while Jones will play a smooth-talking client with whom she has an affair with. Brandy will play Gross’ co-worker.
In addition, according to Variety, Williams will play the owner of the firm where the marriage counselor practices, while Kardashian will play her sassy co-worker.
The film, Perry’s 13th with Lionsgate, is currently in production in Atlanta at Tyler Perry Studios.
“I have a great relationship with Lionsgate and am proud to be making my thirteenth film with them,” said Perry. “I always appreciate the artistic freedom they afford me, but will particularly appreciate it on this project, which explores family life even more up close and personally than I ever have before and speaks about so many universal issues and challenges that are dear to my own heart.”
