Eddie Murphy Hits the Screen as Richard Pryor

February 27, 2009

Yup…..Richard Pryor life story hits the big screen and Eddie Murphy is set to star in the biopic. I would have never imagined they would give the legendary Richard Pryor a movie, but alas our dreams have come true…. Being  big Pryor fan I’d want nothing more than to see a movie about the life of Richard Pryor, especially when Eddie Murphy is headlining….Now, I’m a fan of Eddie Murphy only when he’s playing certain roles. Mostly comedy, it’s nothing personal but it’s hard to take him serious otherwise. I am an advocate of people sticking to what suits them and the role of Richard Pryor suits him. Not only does the role suit him, he resembles Pryor a little bit too.


Set to direct the film is Bill Condon. Condon will reunite with Murphy after their 2006 chart banger Dream Girls, and I’m sure they will deliver a stunning and legendary performance. Fox Searchlight is looking for a 2010 summer release date, really looking forward to this one.
