Lionsgate has just released 8 new character banners for Tyler Perry’s latest film For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf. The film features an all star cast of actresses who each portray a complex and traumatized character. It’s based on the stage play of the same name that was written by Ntozake Shange. Check out the cast below…

The play was originally produced in 1975 and was a poetic exploration of what it is to be of color and a female in this world. In the above photos we see all the ladies of the cast including Anika Noni Rose (as Yasmine), Kerry Washington (as Kelly), Janet Jackson (as Joanna), Kimberly Elise (as Crystal), Phylicia Rashad (as Gilda), Loretta Devine (as Juanita), and Thandie Newton (Tangie).

This will be the first film that Tyler Perry has directed that isn’t based on his own, original material. It will be interesting to see if he can pull it off. Good luck!

For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf is scheduled to hit theaters on November 5th.
