Editor's note: This news broke before the news of Michael Jackson's death Thursday.

Janet Jackson has signed on to reprise her role in Tyler Perry's comedy sequel Why Did I Get Married Too, according to Variety.

The thesbian will again portray a successful author and psychologist who prefers to analyze other's relationship problems rather than deal with her own marriage.

Jackson's the first announced casting for the project other than Perry. Lionsgate announced in March that it had acquired rights to Why Did I Get Married Too and I Can Do Bad All by Myself with Perry writing, directing and starring in both projects.

Why Did I Get Married Too has been set for release on April 2, the start of next year's Easter weekend.
