Having finished the filming of GOOD DEEDS filmmaker Tyler Perry is now gearing up to play the lead role in Rob Cohen's mystery I, ALEX CROSS. And in the meantime, he has a revelation to share.

Perry recently took a trip to the Grand Canyon for some hiking and climbing. "At one point in climbing, I was over a steep drop and was tied to a safety rope, while a buddy's safety rope was tied to me. It was my responsibility to help him up, since I was bigger and weighed more.

"I told him, 'I'll hold onto you to help you up but if you start to pull me over with you, I'm going to untie this rope.' We had a good laugh about it, but I was serious…"

Untie the Rope
Perry reflected on the moment and realized, "How many times are we tied to a person, people or things that are pulling us down and we won't untie the rope? For whatever reason, be it family, friends, society, or just the feeling of being obligated, trapped or that if you don't, no one else will. I have watched so many people go over a cliff with a person that they are trying to help up, it's sad.

"You must untie the rope," Perry exclaimed.

Acknowledging that his own advice might sound cruel to some, Perry noted, "What is more cruel is dying a death that's not your own. Letting your destiny go to hell because someone else pulled you there... That isn't God."

As a former self-saboteur himself, the outspoken man of faith revealed that he was once a person who could not "untie the rope."

You Are Worthy!
"I would find a way to subconsciously destroy every good thing that was in my life and I didn't even know I was doing it. Many times a lot of us sabotage subconsciously because of what mamma or daddy said, traumatic childhoods or any number of things that happened growing up that made us feel that we shouldn’t have or that we didn't deserve it.

I'm here to tell you all, that misinformation was wrong. You do deserve it! You are worthy of it! For me, knowing that Jesus died and rose again makes me know we are all worthy."

A Busy 2012
With two movies already in motion for 2012, it looks as if it's going to be another busy year for the 41-year-old producer, the star and director of GOOD DEEDS, expected to be released in February.

Madea fans will be able to see a double dose of Perry, first in a romantic comedy, as the successful entrepreneur Glen Deeds, who just before he gets married finds himself suddenly more interested in a down-on-her-luck single mother (Thandie Newton) than his uptown fiancé (Gabrielle Union). Following GOOD DEEDS, Perry will play Washington, D.C. detective Alex Cross in Cohen's thriller, where he tracks down a serial rapist who may have murdered his pregnant wife.

GOOD DEEDS is Perry's 14th film that he has directed, written, produced, or acted in. Lionsgate announced earlier that the movie would be released on Presidents Day weekend, February 24, 2012.
