The Ninja Turtles are back and this time they recruit a mad scientist, which Tyler Perry plays, to help with the mission. FOX 4's Shawn Edwards sat down with Perry to find out what motivates him to step out from behind the camera and onto the big screen.

"For me this was about my son," Perry said. "I wanted to do something different that he can enjoy."

Perry's son may only be one-year old, but Perry says it will be something he can watch in the future. Perry also adds that having a son has changed the way he approaches films.

"I want it to be something he can look at and be proud of," Perry said.
