The triple threat known as Kelly Rowland is teaming up with media mogul Tyler Perry for a must-see thriller.

It’s the first collaboration between the four-time Grammy-winning musician turned actor and Perry. Variety describes the upcoming Netflix project “Mea Culpa” as centering ‘on a criminal defense attorney who, in the hopes of becoming partner, takes on the case of an artist who may or may not have murdered his girlfriend.’

“He is so brilliant and was so collaborative, you know, and we all know he can do it all himself. He is so incredibly talented, and when I had different ideas, he was very supportive,” Rowland said.

Rowland is far from new when it comes to acting. The songstress has starred in such films as “Think Like A Man,” “Bad Hair” and most recently appeared in “Fantasy Football” with Marsai Martin.

“He’s become one of my favorite people, and we had a blast on set. I learned so much,” Rowland continued when discussing her partnership with Perry.

Perry is slated to write, direct and produce the film, with Rowland co-producing alongside him. The upcoming film “Mea Culpa” marks Perry’s fifth film directed for Netflix, following “A Fall From Grace,” “A Madea Homecoming,” the period drama “A Jazzman’s Blues,” and the upcoming World War II-based drama “Six Triple Eight.”

While the movie was set to start filming this spring, there is no release date for the movie yet.
