Tyler Perry (Diary of a Mad Black Woman), whose Madea's Family Reunion debuted last month in the top spot with $30 million, has signed on to write, produce and direct Daddy's Little Girl for the Lionsgate.

Reuben Cannon (Reunion, Diary) will join Perry as producer of Daddy's Little Girl, which is described as a reverse Cinderella (Cinderfella) tale about a young, beautiful, successful female attorney who falls in love with a janitor and single father of three daughters. Despite strong objections from the attorney's father, love triumphs in the end.
