Lee Daniels Cut From Richard Pryor Biopic
From as far back as 2014 director Lee Daniels has been attached to the big screen Richard Pryor biopic starring Mike Epps, Oprah Winfrey, Jennifer Hudson and Eddie Murphy [click here if you missed that].
Insiders tell Deadline The Weinstein Company gave Lee Daniels the heave ho after his latest TV pilot starring Queen Latifah got picked up by Fox.
The highly anticipated biopic had already been pushed back several times to accommodate Lee's hit Fox series Empire and another TV show was just too much.
The current cast is expected to remain in place.
