Marlon Wayans to Play Richard Pryor

Souce: EW

In a movie that should probably not be made, news has come out that Marlon Wayans is in talks to play comic legend Richard Pryor in the biopic, Richard Pryor: Is it Something I Said?. Eddie Murphy was originally attached to star as Pryor.

The film is being written and directed by Bill Condon (Dreamgirls) and is being produced by Adam Sandler‘s Happy Madison Productions along with Sony Picutes.

So…what the hell? Does this movie really need to be made? What do you think about Wayans as Pryor?
