It is being reported that Eddie Murphy is no longer to play Richard Pryor in the biopic "Richard Pryor: Is It Something I Said?"
Earlier this year I had posted that Murphy had been chosen for the part and that he even waived his multi-million dollar salary to be in the film. (consumed3/3/09)
Now the latest news is that he has been replaced by Marlon Wayans. (That's right.... Marlon Wayans folks....)
The replacement is reportedly due to Wayans rising box office status and Murphy's steady decline. The movie has also changed studios as it was with Paramount when Murphy was linked. It is now with Sony.
The question now is....Can Marlon Wayans pull this off? We just will have to wait and see. We might be surprised.
