A bombshell has officially hit the production of “Richard Pryor: is it something I said?“. Oscar nominated director Lee Daniels has completely left the project. Sources say the Daniels departure from the project was due to the conflicting schedule he had as showrunner for the hit Fox series “Empire.”

TWC studios which is distrubuting the project is looking for a director as we speak.

“Richard Pryor: Is It Something I Said?” is based on the legendary comedian Richard Pryor who influenced many of today’s biggest comedians. The film is set to star Mike Epps, Oprah Winfrey, Eddie Murphy and Kate Hudson. The movie is written by Bill Condon.

No release date has been announced as of yet.
