Condon to Direct Murphy as Richard Pryor ?

I hope this makes it out. To me, there is no one better to play Pryor
than Murphy

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.
