Keisha Knight-Pulliam is stretching her acting wings after being tapped to play a prostitute in the newest Tyler Perry play-turned-film Madea Goes to Jail
. This was one of my least favorite Madea plays, but he tends to add more depth to the film.
Filming is set to start in Atlanta next month and will also feature Derek Luke. You can look out for the movie to premiere in early 2009. Madea, who finally gets locked up after her shenanigans comes to the rescue of Candy (Keisha), a fellow inmate preyed upon by a large woman. Luke will play an attorney who has a past with Candy.
Putting her Spelman education to work for her, she is also launching an Atlanta-based production company for film and television projects that she has in development.
