Eddie Murphy
The biopic of singer James Brown is moving forward with producers starting the casting process. Producer Brian Grazer told Rolling Stone that Eddie Murphy and Wesley Snipes were still being considered for the part of Brown, but it is still early in the casting process. 'We're going to start casting and we're going to have to test lots of actors and be determined to pick the right one. No movie starts in a day. I've never loved a subject and not made the movie. Friday Night Lights took 13 years. American Gangster took seven or eight.'
Grazer has had the rights to the picture for almost a dozen years and even had the blessing of Brown, himself, before his untimely death. After Brown's passing, though, he lost the rights and has only recently reacquired them.
