As we reported several weeks ago, it is now being confirmed by the studio that Eddie Murphy will star in the Richard Pryor biopic that will be titled Richard Pryor: Is It Something I Said? for director Bill Condon. We just heard that Murphy will wave his usual eight-figure fee, and that there will be parts for four of Pryor’s wives and a part for someone who will play Redd Foxx.
We also hear that filming is going to begin later this year and will be released in 2010.
