As it stands now, acclaimed director Lee Daniels might actually pull off doing a Richard Pryor biopic with Mike Epps starring as Pryor, Kate Hudson playing Jennifer Pryor, and Eddie Murphy, who idolized Pryor, playing Pryor’s father, LeRoy Pryor.

Currently, Eddie is in talks to play the role, but we’re glad to see that Eddie might be involved. Keep your fingers crossed that this attempt, out of the many attempts over the last several years, at Pryor movie actually sees the big screen.
