Interesting...I wonder what he'll do different than "JoJo Dancer". Bcuz that was Richard's real story told by Richard. And to this day is one of my fav movies. Also, "Which way is up"
RIP Richard!! A True talent. You made sure you employed black people in your productions.

I am not excited about it because Jennifer Pryor makes it her duty to drag and make Richard look vile. He was more than a moment with a tranny, but she loves emphasizing his flaws but bever tells her own...Notice how his 7 kids are not in the production, it's because their stepmom is grimmy. She is like one of 5 wives, and she only married him at the end a second time to secure the bag and tun the estate. She had nothing going for herself. She is a female Lee Daniel's and she will make his entire life a Precious movie. He already told what he wanted.

Screw Kenya "Droopy Dog" Barris and this regurgitation. It's been one and done already and he is not for the people as he pretends to be.

I thought Jojo Dancer was a Richard Pryor biopic. Is there any creativity in Hollywood for NEW projects? These remakes are stale.

Yall going on and on about Jojo Dance but it is fiction my dears.

^^ummm No it wasn't fiction. He may not have divulged everything but he was pretty transparent about his upbringing, entry into stardom, racism, the wives, drugs & sex

My dear, the title of the film is Jojo DANCER, Your life is calling. You're going on and on about NOTHING.

@7:55 ... Yes. Jo-Jo Dancer is the definitive movie on Pryor and Debbie Allen was the shit in that movie.

@10:42 ... You’re right, but this is what Richard gets for leaving his legacy in Jennifer’s hands. He knew what he was doing and just didn’t give a fuck, or so it seems.

Still, I’m not watching it.
