And The Oscar Goes To…Marlon Wayans?!?!

No Marlon, not two...four wives, Richard Pryor had four wives.

No Marlon, not two...four wives, Richard Pryor had four wives.

This just in from the “what the hell are they thinking” department…Marlon Wayans has replaced Eddie Murphy in the Richard Pryor biopic. Awhile back, I wrote about my feelings on Murphy as Pryor when he was originally involved in the project and I thought it was a great idea.

How do you think Wayans will do with this? After seeing “G.I. Joe” over the summer, you would think it’s an awful decision. I can’t believe I’m typing this but Marlon Wayans may be a piece of inspired casting and he could excel as Pryor. After all, Wayans was pretty damn good in “Requiem For A Dream”…but then again, he made “Little Man” so it’s still up in the air.

One more piece of news is that Condon has switched production companies. Paramount and Fox Searchlight are no longer producing the flick, instead, it will be Adam Sandler’s Happy Madison productions. Also, Chris Rock has jumped onboard as a producer. What if this movie is good enough to win Best Picture? We would then see Adam Sandler and Chris Rock accepting Oscars. Craziness.

    I’m willing to forgive a lot for anybody attached to “Requiem for a Dream,” but Marlon Wayans is stretching it. Still, I’ll try to give benefit of the doubt.

    To the guy who starred in “White Chicks.” Yipes.
