Will Lee Daniels Bring Richard Pryor’s Biopic to the Big Screen?


Richard Pryor, comedy’s most influential mind of this generation hasn’t had biopic made yet? Pryor’s life wasn’t a cake walk either so I guess we’ll make his biopic a bit of challenge too!

Over the last few years both Eddie Murphy and Marlon Wayans have been up for the challenge to take on the Iconic Pryor’s Story but talks have begun again with a few new players.

The Weinstein Company, Director Lee Daniels, and Young Actor Micheal B. Jordan.


Notably Lee Daniels’ success with The Weinstein Co. and The Butler has critics wondering if he could do the same thing with Pryor’s Biopic. The recent talks of Young Jordan (Fruitvale Station) playing Pryor over older Murphy and Wayans is a major headline.

So what do you think? Lee, Jordan, and Weinstein the big three? Kinda sounds like a throwback Bulls Roster, huh?
