Chris Rock and Adam Sandler teamed up to produce Richard Pryor biopic

Chris Rock and Adam Sandler teamed up to produce a Richard Pryor biopic "Is It Something I Said?", a big-screen movie that will follow the legendary comedian's controversial life.

Director Bill Condon was supposed to begin shooting Richard Pryor biopic this fall, but the schedule will probably be complicated, since he is going to direct "Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn", also this fall. Adam Sandler stated that they will begin the project hopefully, soon. It's all being worked on.

As for the actor that is going to play Richard Pryor's, after Eddie Murphy, who was the first choice, passed because of "creative differrences", Marlon Wayans hit the jackpot after "he did a screen test and it was just unbelievable", as Chris Rock stated.

"It's not just doing the comedy of Richard Pryor. He captures the vulnerability of Richard Pryor." - added Chris Rock .

Richard Pryor, who passed away in 2005, was the inspiration for a whole generation of stand up comedians and his stand up comedy shows, Here and Now, Live on the Sunset Strip, or Richard Pryor Live in Concert, are still some of the stand up comedy videos ever.
