Eddie Murphy and Oprah Winfrey confirmed to star in Richard Pryor biopic with Mike Epps as the legendary comedian: VIDEO





























Oprah Winfrey and Eddie Murphy are joining Mike Epps and Kate Hudson in a new biopic about comedian Richard Pryor.

Winfrey has been cast as Pryor’s grandmother Marie Carter, who ran a brothel where she raised the groundbreaking comic, and Murphy will play Pryor’s father, Leroy 'Buck Carter' Pryor, Deadline.com reports.

Epps has been attached to the project for almost a decade since beating out Nick Cannon and Marlon Wayans for the lead role.

Oprah Winfrey and Eddie Murphy are joining Mike Epps and Kate Hudson in a new biopic about comedian Richard Pryor.

Winfrey has been cast as Pryor’s grandmother Marie Carter, who ran a brothel where she raised the groundbreaking comic, and Murphy will play Pryor’s father, Leroy 'Buck Carter' Pryor, Deadline.com reports.

Epps has been attached to the project for almost a decade since beating out Nick Cannon and Marlon Wayans for the lead role.

Epps was offered the role of Pryor shortly before the legendary comic's death.

The comedian had been involved with his wife Jennifer in putting the project together and he and Epps had met.

'I'm humbly afraid,' Epps said of taking on the task of embodying Pryor on the big screen.

In an interview with Tavis Smiley for his PBS show in February, the actor, 44, said it was an honor to even have been considered for the part.

'This was a dude who was saying everything we wanted to say and making it funny, using comedy to get the message across,' he said.

Pryor was also a major inspiration for Murphy who, coincidentally, beat out his comedy here to land the role of Billy Valentine in 1983's Trading Places.

He has said in the past that he grew up idolizing and impersonating Pryor.

'Richard’s the one that made me want to do comedy,' he has said. 'When I was little, I used to sneak into my basement and put his albums on.'
