The film is written and will be directed by Tina Gordon Chism with the story centering around a young man enduring the weekend from hell when he surprises his girlfriend by showing up to meet her parents during the family's annual end of summer celebration.
Gordon Chism previously wrote the screenplays for 'Drumline' and 'ATL.'
Perry just finished his feature adaptation of 'For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf,' which hits theaters on January 14, 2011.
Along with Oprah Winfrey, Perry was an executive producer on 'Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire.'
Shooting on 'Peeples' begins in September.
