Condon to Direct Murphy as Richard Pryor ?


Writer/director Bill Condon (Dreamgirls) is shopping his script “Richard Pryor: Is It Something I Said?” to studios, reports Entertainment Weekly. Eddie Murphy is attached to star.

Sources tell the magazine that Fox Searchlight, the studio behind this year’s big Oscar winner Slumdog Millionaire, is interested in the film.

Condon had the Pryor biopic set up at The Weinstein Company but was able to pull it out when the indie outfit put it into turnaround.
