Brendan O'Carroll is heading to Hollywood to work on a new movie with US comedian Tyler Perry
Perry has his own show on Oprah Winfrey's TV channel and is a massive star in the US.
Like Brendan, he became famous for playing a tough, no-nonsense old lady and he's the third highest-paid entertainment figure in the world after Oprah Winfrey and James Cameron, according to Forbes Magazine.
His pensioner character is called Madea and it looks like she could be joining forces with Agnes Brown for a new movie, according to reports from The Sun.
The pair have apparently admired each other's work for years and are hoping to bring their much-loved characters together for a movie collaboration.
"Tyler is a fantastic writer and performer. We are exploring what a movie would look like with both Mrs Brown and Madea and we are laughing a lot," Brendan told The Sun.
Tyler added: "The very thought of the brilliant Brendan O'Carroll and I working together has got me beyond excited. And the thought of Mrs Brown meeting Madea... hysterical."
Brendan has just completed a 77-night stage tour in Australia and said he's looking forward to having some time off before starting work on the film project.
