After another night of late shooting, Tyler Perry’s The Marriage Counselor has wrapped. According to tweets by Brandy Norwood, the plan was for a long weekend of very emotional scenes. Brandy was being coached by the legendary Susan Batson who came to the Atlanta set to help her with the dramatic final days of shooting.
Lance Gross, was cast in the leading male role of Bryce, the husband of title character Judith played by Jurnee Smollet. Brandy plays the part of Melinda, Bryce’s co-worker who has an unexpected connection to Bryce’s wife. The final days on the set resolved these complications as Judith realizes the severity of the choices she made in her marriage.
Lance tweeted last night about 11 p.m. that they had completed 13 pages of script yesterday. Those final pages were expected to take the entire weekend. Filming began on November 2 putting the total number of filming days at a mere seventeen. Despite being a straightforward shoot with no special effects that seems like a short shoot to me. Fans of Tyler Perry will get a double shot of movies in 2012. Perry stars in Good Deeds, a movie about an engaged man who has change of heart, which will be released in February.
