Glee’s Ryan Murphy Has a New Movie Musical! Beyonce, Cameron Diaz: Who Else is Involved?
Glee creator Ryan Murphy’s ever-burgeoning to-do list just got a(nother) addition! On top of new episodes of Glee, a second season of American Horror Story, a new pilot for NBC and directing the film adaptation of Broadway hit The Normal Heart, Ryan’s got a new gig on his radar…
Deadline reports that following a recent dinner Ryan had at Soho House with A-listers Gwyneth Paltrow, Cameron Diaz and Reese Witherspoon, the group decided to collaborate on a project (currently) titled One Hit Wonders. The big-screen musical — yes, musical!— will see the trio of lovely ladies playing three singers who each had a one hit wonder in the 1990s before their career trajectory hit the skids.
The all-star project also counts among its attached names none other than Beyonce (the young up-and-comer, perhaps?), as well as SNL-er Andy Samberg, who has been recruited alongside his Lonely Island pals to work on the film’s music.
Ryan is set to direct and write the script for the flick, along with his Glee cohorts Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan, and the project’s timeline will likely follow the completion of The Normal Heart.
