Some people have already expressed their doubts at Marlon Wayans playing the legendary comedian, Richard Pryor, in the biopic, 'Richard Pryor: Is It Something I Said?'

But, fellow comedian and producer of the film, Chris Rock told VIBE he has no doubts about Wayans' ability to pull it off.

He said: "They're still working on the script, but I think Marlon's going to knock it out the park. If you see the screen tests...he really becomes Richard. It's amazing. It's not just dramatically. I think (this film's) going to be good."

The part was originally meant to be played by Eddie Murphy, but he was replaced by Wayans in October.

What do you think about Wayans playing Pryor!? Do you think he'll be able to pull it off?
