There’s been a lot of speculation about Tyler Perry’s upcoming film adaptation of the classic play “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf,” and now we finally have a few clues in the form of promotional posters, but fans of the play — we’re warning you now not to go looking for the “Lady in Blue.”
We suspected from previous on the set shots that Janet’s role was likely the “Lady in Red” but judging from the movie poster it looks like Perry has decided to have the characters use “real names”. Whatever works for him, we guess!
But um, did he have to make Janet wear Michael’s contacts from “Thriller”??? Just sayin’.

Thandie Newton is taking over for Mariah, who bailed on the movie right before production started.
Whoopi, who was spotted rocking a habit during production is playing Alice. Seems like she’s always either a nun or a turban wearing psychic… Way to typecast Tyler!
We’re actually digging the fact that Anika Noni Rose’s poster has a little bit of light and youthfulness to it, the others seem kind of dark and ominous.
When we heard Loretta Devine and Phylicia Rashad would be part of this production we knew at least the film would have shot at maintaining the integrity of the play.
Not to take anything away from the other actresses but both Loretta Devine and Phylicia Rashad have those years of theater experience in addition to their film work.
