Gabrielle Union has agreed to star in Tyler Perry's latest film, Daddy's Little Girl for Lionsgate.

Written by Perry, the reverse-Cinderella tale centers on a successful attorney (Union) who falls in love with a janitor who is a single father of three children. The Hollywood Reporter adds this relationship causes a rift between the woman and her father, as he hoped she would marry wealthy.

Reuben Cannon, who has produced the last two Madea, will produce this film as well. Production for Daddy's Little Girl will begin later this summer in Atlanta; a 2007 release is scheduled.
