Tyler Perry is moving forward on his next directorial feature, the comedic drama The Marriage Counselor, which has just nabbed reality sweetheart Kim Kardashian in a costarring role.

Not much of a departure for Tyler Perry, The Marriage Counselor revolves around Judith, a slick Ivy-league educated advice expert played by Jurnee Smollett. Unhappy, and bored with her own marriage, Judith goes against her own code of conduct and cheats on her husband with a smooth talking player that comes to her seeking relationship guidance. Realizing she has made a huge mistake, she enlists the help of her friend Ava to give her a makeover and new confidence as her life unravels.

Kim Kardashian will play Ava, her most substantial role in film thus far. The non-actress was previously seen in the spoof Disaster Movie and in the Chris Pratt cult comedy Deep in the Valley.

Tyler Perry begins shooting The Marriage Counselor this week, starting October 26th, in his home base of Atlanta.

Temptation was released March 29th, 2013 and stars Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Lance Gross, Kim Kardashian, Vanessa Williams, Robbie Jones, Renée Taylor, Ella Joyce, Brandy Norwood. The film is directed by Tyler Perry.

    @ROFLitschristian - I take it you really don't like dramas, or was it just this movie?

    @Connect200@XxNickTheFilmCriticXx@ejk1 - Thanks for the history lesson guys, because i didn't know what the hell she was either lol. And i can understand why other guys find her exotic but come on, your telling me there isn't much better looking caucasian women out there with a**.

    @ejk1 -- Probably so.

    @Connect200 -- Meh, I think its' more of a lose-lose situation. But at the same time, I've never been a big fan of his either. I do fully respect his abilities, though.

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Dnt worry about it. My guess is she might play the counsoler, but I think Perry should just stick to plays.

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Fair enough. She looks exotic, so it stands to reason that she may be other than white. Perhaps it is the Armenian in her.

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx She's Armeinan and Dutch. That means she's white, dude. Not that it should mean anything.

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx She is white because she has a European background (Dutch).

    Kim looks fine as sh*t since she's the only white woman with an ass lol, but this is not a good look. I see this getting bad.

    @Number1Wolverine Even if he did, Precious was vastly overrated. It's super depressing and really just has no point to it. It's just about her life.

    @ROFLitschristian - I didn't see Precious let, but i don't really count that as a Perry film since like you said he only produce it.

    @addictionnonfatel - I concur.

    @ROFLitschristian - Most of them are bad, but he makes about 3 out of 10 good ones.

    @newtron - I couldn't have said it better myself.

    I respect Tyler Perry for what he's achieved as a director/writer/producer, but I can't stand the fact that he grabs these celebrities, as though they will make his films good and believable. Sure, they'll get people to the theaters, but that doesn't mean it's a good movie. I hate to say it, but if anything, when these celebrities take these roles, they end up giving mediocre performances. And when you have an actor/actress with a track record of good performances giving mediocre to bad performances, you have to start looking at the director, not the actors. With that aside, clearly he's getting Kim Kardashian for her celebrity, whatever that is. She probably didn't even know who Tyler Perry was. Sorry Tyler, but movies have to be more than entertaining to be considered good.

    Oy Vey! This just opens up the door for other reality trash! The cast of The Jersey Shore comes to mind. Anyone who is a casting director who ventures into the reality world and offers them legit movie roles, SHOULD BE FIRED!
