Jay Z has already announced a new project, producing a Biopic for Richard Pryor, a day after noting that he’ll head the Kalief Browder story. Variety had the story, reporting that Lee Daniels will return to direct in the Richard Pryor: Is It Something I Said film.

With a scheduled release date of 2017, the film already has confirmed appearances from Oprah and Eddie Murphy, with Mike Epps playing the late comedian on set and Kate Hudson playing his wife. While the show was pushed back due to Daniel’s Empire obligation, the show is back on track, serving as the second announced project Jay Z is part of under his The Weinstein Co. partnership.
