Thandie Newton has joined the cast of Good Deeds for director/star Tyler Perry and Lionsgate.

The duo last paired on For Colored Girls. This time out, Tyler Perry will star as Glen Deeds, a rich and successful man who is about to get married to an affluent and spoiled woman when he falls for a down-on-her-luck single mother (Thandie Newton).

Tyler Perry, the man who does everything, is also producing Good Deeds from his own original screenplay. Production is scheduled to begin this month in Atlanta.
