WATCH: Taraji P. Henson Stars In New Tyler Perry Thriller, Acrimony

What is Acrimony, Exactly?

Bitterness, anger, rancor, resentment, ill will, bad blood, animosity, hostility, enmity, venom, and antagonism… all are synonyms for Acrimony, which happens to be the title of the forthcoming revenge thriller starring Taraji P. Henson, written and directed by Tyler Perry. From the looks of it, this film is set in the drab gray of Pittsburgh and centers on the life of Melinda, a scorned wife to a dishonest husband played by Lyriq Bent (who will also star in Netflix’s TV adaptation of Spike Lee’s She’s Gotta Have It as Jamie Overstreet). Ajiona Alexus, who plays the teenage version of Cookie Lyon on Empire, also stars as a young Melinda in this tale of love and deception. Jazmyn Simon of HBO’s Ballers plays a supporting role as do numerous up and coming fresh faces. 2018 will be a busy year for Taraji, who has the action flick Proud Mary hitting theaters in January and of course returning in her Golden Globe-winning role as the head of Empire Records for FOX.  Her role in Acrimony is sure to have some dark humor perfect for any woman that has been done wrong by a cheating man. Acrimony arrives in theaters March 30, 2018.
