Jay-Z Announced As Producer In Upcoming Richard Pryor Biopic

Yesterday it was announced that Jay-Z will serve as the producer for the Weinstein Brothers upcoming Richard Pryor biopic. Jay-Z says that Pryor’s story is an “American story” and that the film will show how many lives the late comedian touched from “from every single comedian to rappers like Biggie Smalls.” Mike Epps, who is playing Pryor, says that he has “learned so much about who he is” while preparing for the role. He goes on to say he learned a lot about comedy, in general, calling Pryor a “genius”.
