Eddie Murphy is going the serious route!

The actor, who recently premiered the movie Tower Heist, is reportedly in talks with HBO films to star in - and executive produce - a biopic about the controversial former mayor of Washington, D.C. Marion Barry, who was imprisoned for six years after being videotaped smoking crack cocaine, and then went on to run the city once again from 1994-1998!

If all goes as planned, Spike Lee will serve as director, and John Ridley is attached to write!

Certainly sounds like there some serious talent on board!

Could be really good!

What do U think?? Do U want to see this one made??

    Of course he can be serious and he's playing parts he fits into. That's key, in the acting game, actually relating to what you are doing. It's like sales
