It’s a long way down from the top.
And director Lee Daniels’ may just hit the bottom now that he’s loosing one of his biggest projects to date…
Lee Daniels has just been cut from the Richard Pryor biopic starring Mike Epps, Oprah Winfrey, Jennifer Hudson and Eddie Murphy. Insiders tell Deadline The Weinstein Company gave Lee Daniels the heave ho after his latest TV pilot starring Queen Latifah got picked up by Fox.
The highly anticipated biopic had already been pushed back several times to accommodate Lee’s hit Fox series Empire and another TV show was just too much.
