Marlon Wayans to play Richard Pryor in biopic
Posted by: Sturdy
Looks like Marlon Wayans will officially be replacing Eddie Murphy in the upcoming Richard Pryor biopic. The film has been in the works for a long time and until now, it had been accepted that Eddie Murphy would be portraying the iconic, late comedian in the film. Perhaps the string of bad movies is finally catching up to Eddie after all.
The film will be produced by none other than master producer Adam Sandler…wait…what? It seems that Sandler’s Happy Madison productions is out to get a little drama-cred in Hollywood. Chris Rock is also teaming up on the production with Bill Condon (DREAMGIRLS) directing.
