The trailer for Tyler Perry's latest film has people wondering if it is a good idea for Tyler to continue writing all of his scripts himself.

Tyler Perry is a media mogul who wears a lot of hats and normally does it well.

Tyler revealed he is proud to write every single one of his productions himself.

However, his writing skills have recently drawn great criticism from fans and followers.

It all started when Netflix released the trailer for Tyler's new movie, A Fall From Grace.

Many fans felt like they had definitely seen it all before and that the whole 'black woman going through something terrible because of a black man' angle was getting old.

Social media users begged Tyler to hire some writers and switch his productions up a bit.

Briefly.co.za recently reported that Tyler Perry was the first African American to own his own movie studio.

This studio is, in fact, where our very own Zozibini Tunzi won Miss Universe last year.

It's also where Nomzamo Mbatha filmed Coming 2 America alongside Eddie Murphy.

It looks like Tyler has the space and more than enough on-screen talent at his disposal.

All that's left now is a few new writers.
