Janet Jackson has come aboard to star opposite Tyler Perry in his next film, "Why Did I Get Married," based on the filmmaker's stage play of the same name.

Perry is writing, directing and producing for Lionsgate. Lensing is set to begin March 5 in Whistler, British Columbia; Vancouver; and then Atlanta, where Perry recently opened his own studio.

Sharon Leal ("Dreamgirls") and Jill Scott have also joined the cast.

The fourth film in Perry's lucrative franchise, "Why Did I Get Married" revolves around a couple who go away with friends every winter to examine their marriages in a group setting. One of the wives brings along a sexy young temptress who causes plenty of trouble for the couples.

Reuben Cannon is producing with Perry.Jackson was last seen on the bigscreen in 2000 in "Nutty Professor II: The Clumps," starring opposite Eddie Murphy.

I've seen the play on DVD and it was one of his better stories, so rent the DVD or buy it HERE...
