Mike Epps Lands the Role of Richard Pryor in Lee Daniels-Directed Biopic

20 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

As confirmed through a photo posted to Lee Daniels’ Twitter feed earlier this week, comedian Mike Epps will play the late iconic stand-up Richard Pryor in the forthcoming biopic directed by Daniels, and produced by media mogul Oprah Winfrey.

As Deadline reports, Epps claimed the role after a phenomenal audition that made it difficult to pass over the actor. He beat out several higher profile young actors, including Marlon Wayans (whom, according to TMZ’s, was the favorite choice of Pryor’s kids), Nick Cannon, and Fruitvale Station’s Michael B. Jordan. Additionally, Deadline has stated that both Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway have been auditioning alongside the potential Pryors, with the actresses being looked to for the role of Richard’s widow, Jennifer Lee Pryor.

Fans of the late Richard Pryor should be satiated by the selection of Mike Epps. Though many know of Epps through his roles in Next Friday and The Hangover, »

Warner Bros rumoured to have a no jokes policy on its DC films

28 August 2014 3:25 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Warner Bros is rumoured to have a no jokes policy for its DC Comics film adaptations.

The studio is demanding that no humour make its way into the Batman and Superman films and its other franchises, according to HitFix.

The article speculates that Warner may have decided to move away from comedy follow the failure of 2011's Green Lantern.

Marvel Studios has found continuing success with the mix of comedy, drama and action in its own franchise.

However, actor and filmmaker Seth Rogen has denied the reports via Twitter, branding the claims as "bulls**t".

Warner has been accused of sticking too closely to the tone of Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy in Man of Steel, making the Superman film overly serious and dark.

Interstellar TV Spot Repurposes Old Trailer Footage to Remind You That This Movie Will Probably Be Good

26 August 2014 2:56 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Warner Bros. has released a “new” Interstellar TV spot for writer/director Christopher Nolan’s upcoming sci-fi film.  The spot doesn’t actually contain any new footage, but instead just repurposes footage from the latest trailer in a new 60-second cut—and that’s fine by me.  Nolan usually does a fine job of keeping the major aspects of his films out of the trailers, but even The Dark Knight Rises wasn’t immune to WB’s need to show footage from the third act in the trailers leading up to its release.  Regardless, Interstellar certainly looks to be one hell of a moviegoing experience, and with this absolutely stacked cast onboard I can’t wait to see what Nolan has put together. Hit the jump to watch the UK Interstellar TV spot for a reminder of just how good this movie looks.  The film stars Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, »

Director Lee Daniels has confirmed via Twitter that Mike Epps (The Hangover and The Hangover III) is set to play Richard Pryor in a new biopic. Over the years other actors rumored to be up for the role have included Nick Cannon, Michael B. Jordan, and Marlon Wayans

Daniels released a photo of himself (below) with Epps and Oprah Winfrey with the following caption, "Get ready y'all- #MikeEpps as #RichardPryor." Deadline previously reported that Epps blew everyone away at his audition and that Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway were on the list of options to play Pryor’s widow, Jennifer. 

The movie will depict Pryor’s controversial brand of comedy and his battle with drugs. Pryor's widow, Jennifer Pryor, is also producing the film, and she "brings to the project more than 50 pages of Pryor's personal journals, which offer a glimpse into his brilliant, but dark, mind."

Richard Pryor was a freakin' funny comedian. »

- lee daniels (@leedanielsent) August 24, 2014 Epps was in some serious competition for the role, with actors including Michael B. Jordan, Marlon Wayans, and Nick Cannon all vying for the part. (Anne Hathaway and Kate Hudson are currently said to be in talks to play Pryor's wife, Jennifer Lee Pryor.) But the comedian had some history on his side, with both Pryor and his wife giving Epps their blessing to play Pryor in a different biopic that was in the works nine years ago.

Mike Epps To Play Richard Pryor In Upcoming Biopic

26 August 2014 10:21 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Once Lee Daniels announced his involvement in an upcoming Richard Pryor biopic from The Weinstein Company, several actors threw their hat in the ring in hopes of landing the coveted role. Eddie Murphy, Chris Rock and Michael B. Jordan were all being looked at, but then Mike Epps‘ name emerged. Apparently he had blown people away with his screen test for a previous version of the biopic, and he quickly became the frontrunner.

Now, via Twitter, Daniels confirmed that the actor has signed on for the role. You can check out the Tweet below:

Get ready y’all- #MikeEpps as #RichardPryor pic.twitter.com/0sothu7yVB

— lee daniels (@leedanielsent) August 24, 2014

The biopic is still without a title, and it’s unclear when the director will get around to making it, but with Epps now set to take the lead, you can bet that things will get moving quickly on this one. »

Watch: New TV Trailer for Christopher Nolan's 'Interstellar'

26 August 2014 9:45 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

We're approaching that point where the marketing for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar is going to become almost intolerable so, unless Paramount releases a new full trailer (which they obviously will), this will probably be the last time I dedicate a single post to just one TV spot. But, since we are still a ways out from that November 7 release date I figured what the hell when it comes to this new one, after all it is a minute long. Interstellar chronicles the adventures of a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage. The cast includes Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine, Casey Affleck, Ellen Burstyn, John Lithgow, Topher Grace, David Oyelowo and Matt Damon among many others.
